Mission

  • To nurture students with the attitude and scientific inquiry skills to appreciate and understand the world we live in

Vision

  • Enterprising learners with the mindset and passion to pursue knowledge and skills in Science

Curriculum

  • To cater to the different aspirations and abilities of our students, the department offers several subject combinations in the Upper Secondary. 

    The options for Secondary 3 Express in 2015 are:
    - Double Sciences (Chemistry & Physics)
    - Double Sciences: Chemistry & Science(Phy/Bio)
    - Double Sciences: Biology & Science(Phy/C em)
    - Combined Science: Science(Phy/Chem)

    The options for the Secondary 3 Normal Academic in 2015 are Science(Phy/Chem) and Science(Phy/Bio).

    Science is also offered as an elective to Secondary 3 Technical students.

  • The department adopts Inquiry-based Learning (IBL) into its curriculum. We are committed to create learning experiences to foster deep learning and instil a sense of inquiry and curiosity through a variety of approaches. Lesson packages have been developed and are constantly refined for each level to provide opportunities for students to develop 21 Century Competencies, especially in Critical and Inventive Thinking (CIT).
  • To cater to students of diverse learning profiles and abilities in pursuing knowledge and skills in Science, varied modes of assessments are used. Besides practical skills, students are also assessed in performance assessments in problem-solving, mind-mapping, model-making, video-making, etc. 

Enrichment

  • One of the highlights for the Department is Science Day. Its objectives are as follows:

    -to stimulate interest in Science by engaging all students in activities which involve the application of Science concepts in daily life
    -to let students apply problem-solving skills and ICT skills in learning
    -to let students learn to work collaboratively with their peers

  • Activities are planned for each level for every student to participate in. The activities in 2015 are as follows :
