Department Introduction

The Science Department aims to impart scientific knowledge and skills needed to understand the world we live in. We inculcate in our pupils the love for Science as well as a sense of appreciation and care for nature.

We provide pupils with tangible learning experiences through activities to stimulate critical thinking, development of process skills and problem-solving opportunities. We seek to arouse pupils' curiosity about the world of living things around them and offer them a first-hand encounter with the world of nature through learning outside the classroom. We encourage pupils to explore and learn beyond books.

With engaging teachers and engaging programmes that are supported with varied resources, we aim to enthuse our pupils, so that they are interested in the subject, and will do their best.

Vision and Mission


Teachers and pupils are PASSIONATE LEARNERS;

Teachers as the leaders of inquiry and pupils as the inquirers.


We build on our pupils’ interest, stimulate their curiosity and develop their skills, habits of mind and attitudes for positive influences on people and the environment.
