Curriculum

Principles of Accounts (POA) is designed to provide students with a meaningful basic introduction to financial accounting and to develop an appreciation of the discipline of accounting. It is grounded in preparing, communicating and using financial information, and appreciating the need for ethical conduct. The subject places emphasis on the understanding and application of accounting knowledge to develop lifelong skills and values that will be of value in the increasingly complex world of business.


This subject forms part of a broad-based education to equip students with strong fundamentals for future learning.

In line with the framework of learning Principles of Accounts as an important foundation subject, our department organises a series of enrichment activities to stimulate students' interest and inquisitiveness towards the subject.

Secondary 2 Mathematics Trail (28 May)
The Secondary 2 students embarked on a learning trail where they were given the opportunities to connect mathematics that they have learnt in school to the real world. Through a visit to the supermarket and a game of bowling, the students learnt to work collaboratively with their peers to construct new knowledge and, at the same time, solve problems
