Mobile Learning with iPADs
iPADs are not just a cool toy but rather a powerful tool that is virtually changing the face of education. With more than 15 000 education apps available, teachers and students alike are having no trouble finding content and material for learning. In East Spring, our students will be involved in Learning Trails around the school compound. Outdoor learning is now made more fun and engaging for the students.

Classroom Performance System (CPS)
CPS promotes greater student involvement, achievement and progress as it is able to capture real-time assessment data so that teachers could instantly identify their students’ individual learning needs and alter instructions as needed. Students become more engaged and willing to respond to teachers’ questions and participate in lessons more eagerly and enthusiastically.
Digital Art & Digital Music
Our students experienced music and art digitally. During Art and Music lessons, students make use of Garage Band as they create beautiful music pieces and work on the Wacom Bamboo tablets to create their Manga Art. There is no better way to draw, paint or just simply doodle with the tablets.
