Passionate Scientific Inquirers, Curious and Mindful Learners
To develop confident and inquisitive individuals who exhibit a passion for Science learning
1. Igniting Curiosity through Science Inquiry
In Science teaching
and learning, activities are specially planned to integrate skills and
processes which arouse students’ curiosity and encourage them to seek new
knowledge and inquire about things around them. With the focus on conceptual
understanding and skills development, students are encouraged to ask questions
to deepen their learning as they quest for new knowledge and embark on their
journey of continuous learning.

2. Enriched Learning @ Our School Garden
The school garden is a rich learning ground designed to bring out students’ natural curiosity and to encourage them to actively explore, engage with and experience the natural environment. Interesting programmes and engaging activities are designed to enhance students’ capacities for creativity and intellectual development in learning beyond the classroom.
3. Supporting Science Programmes
These programmes complement the Science curriculum and allow students to reinforce their learning through exploration in a natural setting beyond the school. Students as active learners are given the opportunities to discover and experience the natural environment at first hand. Learning is enriched as they make new discoveries in their quest for new knowledge.
