Subject Target:

  1. To enhance students' scientific thinking through progressive learning activities that involve planning, measuring, observing, analysing data, designing and evaluation procedures, and examining evidence.
  2. Enable students to lead a fulfilling and responsible life by encouraging them to learn independently, deal with new situations, reason critically, think creatively, make wise decisions and solve problems.
  3. Through science activities, students should develop an interest in science and thus they will be motivated to become active learners in science. Students should also develop an understanding of science, technology and society (STS). They should be able to make informed decisions based on evidence.
  4. By organising more challenging learning programmes, the needs of students with high ability or a strong interest in science are fulfilled. These programmes could stretch the students' science capabilities and offer opportunities for students to develop their potential to the full.

Short-term targets:

To provide knowledge and understanding in relation to some phenomena, facts and concepts in science, some scientific vocabulary and some applications of science in society and students’ everyday life.

  1. To demonstrate scientific methods and problem solving skills.
  2. To develop curiosity and interest in science and show concern for and care of the environment.
  3. To improve students’ reading and answering skills in tests and examinations.
  4. To provide opportunities for students to present / express their ideas with various vocabulary items.

Features of our Curriculum:

The aim of science education is to enhance students’ scientific thinking through progressive learning activities. Students in our school are always encouraged to join different kinds of activities in order to cultivate their curiosity about the world.

There are two lessons every week. During these lessons, students carry out experiments such as making water filters, electric cars, and many more.

Learning Science is not only limited to our school. We have also provided many other chances for students to learn by encouraging them to join different kinds of workshops and competitions. We hope that our students will become life-long learners in science and technology.
