Direct School Admission
What is Direct School Admission?
DSA-Sec is an initiative by MOE which was introduced in 2004 to give schools greater flexibility in student admission, so as to recognise more diverse range of student achievements and talents. Under the DSA-Sec Exercise, participating schools may select some students for admission via their own admission criteria.
|Pei Hwa Secondary School (PHSS) is committed to develop our students as innovative and compassionate citizens. As part of the effort to achieve these desirable outcomes of education, the School launched its Applied Learning Programme (ALP): Robotics and Programming since 2014.Hence, in line with its goal of nurturing talents, we are looking for committed students who demonstrate forte and aptitude in Robotics (Programming).
With the nation’s effort to improve digital literacy and encourage innovation, there is a shift in our ALP focus towards Digital Makers’ Programme where students are encouraged to tinker and create products to solve real world problems through STEM education.
|Pei Hwa Secondary School is looking for Primary 6 students with a passion and talent in playing the Guzheng. Students should meet the admission criteria stated in the following section before applying. Shortlisted applicants who meet the admission criteria will be required to attend an e-interview and e-audition (through video conferencing) by a panel of teachers and instructor.Parents and students are encouraged to choose wisely based on the student’s aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the school’s academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.
Students who are successfully admitted to the school via DSA are expected to honour their commitment to the school, and participate in the activities related to the talent they are selected for from year 1 to 4.
