NATIONAL DIGITAL LEARNING PROGRAMME @ GUANGYANG SECONDARY SCHOOL
Guangyang Secondary School embraces the use of technology as a key enabler to achieve the school’s student outcomes.
In Guangyang Secondary School’s National Digital Learning Programme (NDLP), students will see themselves use their Personal Learning Device (PLD) purposefully to enhance their learning interactions, enabling them to learn actively in independent as well as collaborative settings, both within and outside of their classrooms. Students will also acquire digital literacy in the four components of Ministry of Education (MOE)’s Digital Literacy Framework. Click here for more information about MOE NDLP.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Please refer to the parent's letter dated 10 May 2021 in Parent's Gateway for the details on the National Digital Literacy Programme (NDLP) and the purchase of the PLD for your child/ward. If you are not onboard Parent’s Gateway, your child/ward would have received the hard copy of the letter from his/her form teacher. Please take some time to read through it and respond accordingly.

To ensure the affordability of devices, MOE has provided an Edusave top-up of $200 in 2020 and will provide another Edusave top-up of $200 in May 2021 (as part of the Household Support Package announced in Budget 2021), to all eligible Singaporean students in primary and secondary schools. This is on top of the annual $290 credited into the Edusave account for Secondary School students.
For students on MOE-FAS, subsidies are available even if there is insufficient Edusave balance. The cash out-of-pocket will be $0. Subsidies will be provided for SC students who need support, particularly those whose Gross Household Income (GHI) is below $4,000 or Per Capita Income (PCI) is below $1,000. For more details on financial assistance, please approach the school.
