Bicultural Chinese Elective Programme (BiCEP)


Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan (SHHK) launched a 3-year BiCEP in its 5 affiliated primary schools in 2007 for selected Primary 4 pupils. It was designed by a team of experienced Chinese Language teachers, in consultation with Chinese Language and culture experts to develop a core group of pupils who are effectively bilingual and bicultural.

The 3-year curriculum places strong emphasis on empowering pupils to discover their Asian heritage and nurture their interests to gain a deeper understanding of Chinese culture and language.
