The National Digital Literacy Programme (NDLP)

In March 2020, MOE launched the NDLP for all Secondary Schools to help students strengthen their digital literacy. One of the components of the NDLP is to facilitate the ownership of a Personal Learning Device for all secondary school students by the end of 2021.

Singapore citizens will be able to utilise the funds in their Edusave account to offset the cost for their Personal Learning Device.

Students who are Singapore citizens from lower-income families will enjoy further subsidies for the purchase.

St. Margaret's Secondary School NDLP Vision

SMSS NDLP Vision.png


NDLP offers many opportunities for our students to grow and glow.  Through NDLP, the school hopes to see the students develop into individuals who possess the qualities of future-ready citizens who harness technology to realise the schools values and grow as champions of change, who lead with their hearts and touch lives. We also hope to further develop our students as connected and collaborative individuals who possess critical and inventive thinking skills and are able to contribute to the smart nation that Singapore strives to become. They should also develop strong digital literacy that expands their capacities and make them more efficient, dynamically creative and effectively productive. 


The competencies that students acquire through the NDLP will allow them to develop as self-directed learners who are intrinsically motivated to explore new possibilities, actively tap on the affordances of ICT and choose the right ICT tools and skills for an intended outcome. With these competencies, values and attitudes, the students will harness technology to think, communicate, design and engage with the world around them and actively contribute to the development of the society.
