Mother Tongue Language

As a school that was founded upon Chinese traditions and education beliefs, Chung Cheng High School (Yishun) has remained steadfast over the years in the implementation of Chinese Language (CL) programmes. The school was officially declared as the N2 Cluster Centre of Learning of Chinese Language (CoLCL) in 2008 by Ms Grace Fu, then Senior Minister of State for Ministry of National Development and Ministry of Education. Since then, the school has played an active role in serving the Cluster’s CL teachers by facilitating professional development training through collaboration with agencies such as the Singapore Centre for Chinese Language (SCCL) and Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB).

Since our relocation to Yishun in 2005, CCHY reaffirmed her commitment to serving the needs of the community better by offering Malay Language (ML). The ML unit, staffed by a group of dedicated and passionate teachers, put in their best effort to secure encouraging results in the National Exams year on year despite a comparatively smaller cohort of students.

Working hand-in-hand, the CL and ML unit deliver complete and comprehensive MTL programmes that are fully in-line with MOE’s stand of Bilingualism as a cornerstone of Singapore’s education system (2010 MTL Review Committee Report, MOE) to Nurture Active Learners and Proficient Users of MTL.

The MTL Department offers the following Instructional Programmes:

  • Normal (Technical): Basic Chinese Language N(T), Basic Malay Language N(T)
  • Normal (Academic): Chinese Language N(A), Malay Language N(A)
  • Express: Chinese Language, Higher Chinese Language, Malay Language, Higher Malay Language
  • Students who offer Tamil Language will attend lessons in other schools within the vicinity that have been designated as Tamil Language Centres.

The MTL Department also runs the Dizigui Programme as part of the school’s CCE curriculum for all students. Students whose MTL is Chinese attends lessons in Chinese, whereas students who offer other MTLs attend the lessons in English.
