Curriculum Highlights

The Science (S1-3) curriculum adopts a thematic approach to provide broad and balanced learning experiences for students to extend their learning of the science elements in General Studies at primary level. The curriculum is designed for the development of scientific literacy, the associated science process skills, together with the awareness of the impact that science has on our lives and environment for students at junior secondary level. This helps students to deal with the opportunities and challenges in a wide variety of personal and social contexts in such an era of rapid scientific and technological change.
