Science & Sustainability

JUNIOR SCHOOL

In Junior School, we will continue to entertain these curious minds in Science through simple hands on experiments, activities and scientific facts to ensure science is fun and enjoyable for our students. We are also planning on having different incursions and excursions to further integrate science into our daily lives.  


MIDDLE SCHOOL

In Middle School, we will follow the 2016 National Science Week theme “Drones, droids and robots” to explore physical science.

 

“The theme will Centre on the real-world application of autonomous technologies in areas including agriculture, mining, manufacturing, medicine and space and deep ocean exploration. Of course, we will also look at how this technology has transformed our day-to-day lives – from robot vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers to automated pool cleaners” 2016 National Science Week statement.

 

In light of the above theme, students will learn about how electricity has modernised these technologies and what our lives would look like without electricity.

 

SENIOR SCHOOL

Our focus in Senior School will be mainly on environmental sustainability and how our students can make a difference in our community by making green choices. In these classes, we are going to learn about the different types of environmental pollution (Water, land, air, noise and light). We will investigate;

  • Different types of pollution,
  • Their causes,
  • Effects of pollutions on our environment and
  • Being proactive and preventing pollution.


Through teacher’s support, students in groups will research each type of pollution and make a PowerPoint presentation to the class on their findings.
