Vision


Our Vision

An excellent department that nurtures inspired inquisitive innovators

Our Mission

To develop a lively curiosity of Science among our pupils through the provision of a conducive learning environment


Department Goals

  1. To provide students with experiences to stimulate their curiosity about their environment
  2. To provide a stimulating environment for inquiry-based learning
  3. To develop students’ process skills, habits of minds and attitudes necessary for scientific inquiry

We aim to provide a curriculum which engages, motivates and inspires confidence in our students and at the same time extend their knowledge through hands-on learning activities. ICT and collaborative skills are also integrated as part of our teaching and learning of Science.


Our Approach

The Science Department focuses on equipping our young scientists with specific skills and approaches in helping them to understand and relate their scientific concepts better. To that end, the Team uses the RICE technique to help students understand the questions, the topic coverage and answer them in a constructive manner.

Our Programmes


Learning Journey to Science Centre

This programme aims to help our students better visualise abstract ideas through the observations of a variety of insect specimens under the microscope. Students learn about the typical life cycles of an insect and the various adaptations of insects to their environment. This helps to inject meaning to students’ learning so that it becomes real and concrete.

Learning Journey to Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum

This programme aims to help our students actively learn about Singapore’s rich biodiversity and various animal adaptations through a hands-on practical using museum specimen. This expands their intellectual horizon and link their theoretical knowledge in the classroom to experiential knowledge as students get a chance to handle actual museum specimens such as civet cat, mudskipper and octopus.

Singapore Amazing Flying Competition

This programme aims to put our students’ ideas to flight. Students can design and fold their own paper planes to achieve the longest, farthest or most accurate flights. The participating teams also learned soft skills such as collaboration, teamwork and presentation skills as they embark on this journey.
