Key Programmes

Key Programmes 
Inquiry-based seamless learning in Science

Pupils learn Science using the inquiry approach via a variety of ICT tools, the use of the Science Interactive Notebook and experiential hands on experiments. This ensures that the learning of Science is not confined to the textbook and the classrooms, but is seamlessly integrated into the pupils’ lives.



Integration of Science In Lower Primary

Simple science concepts such as life cycle of butterfly and magnets are integrated into the Stellar Programme to stimulate scientific thinking for our young learners.



Teaching through the Arts Programme (TTAP)

Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form  and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both. The school started the TTAP in 2013 with a pilot project that infused dance concepts with science concepts like forces and energy.  Since then, TTAP has been infused  into the school’s Andventure programme.

Learning Journeys to the Singapore Science Centre

Every year, the science department organises learning journeys to the science centre for students . Some of the Science Centre workshops  that the students attend include Aquatic Plants and Animals, Diversity of Cells, Fun with Animals  and Light.
