CID Programme

The Construct, Integrate and Differentiate (CID) Programme is one of the flagship programmes of our Cognitive and Interest Development Curriculum. It seeks to nurture future ready learners and aims to (1) promote active and independent learning, (2) develop cognitive interest and (3) develop cross-curricular competencies.

CID is designed as a four-year programme that provides RV students with opportunities to construct their learning by integrating knowledge from various disciplines and apply their learning to real-life situations.

The Foundation module introduces students to the Habits of Mind, Paul's Wheel of Reasoning and the Universal Intellectual Standards.


Comparative Studies

Students apply their research skills and explore different facets of China. During an overseas experiential learning programme (OELP) trip to China, they experience first-hand China’s culture, language, and economic and political developments.


Creative Problem Solving

Students apply problem-solving skills to a real life problem in this module. Students will also get to choose to attend one of five master classes that teaches relevant technical skills such as application coding, designing and prototyping.   


Nurturing Talents and Interests

Self-directed learning takes centre stage as students explore a field of their choice in greater depth to create value for the community.
