Integrated Science

Curriculum Aims

The Science curriculum provides science-related learning experiences that develop students’ interest in science and lay a foundation for their studies of various science curricula at the senior secondary level. It also focuses on the development of scientific literacy for living in and contributing towards a scientific and technological world.


The broad aims of the Science (S1-3) curriculum are to enable students to:

  • develop curiosity and interest in science;
  • acquire fundamental scientific knowledge and skills, and appreciate the relationship between science and other disciplines;
  • develop the ability to make scientific investigations and solve problems;
  • use the language of science to communicate science-related ideas;
  • develop a basic understanding of the nature of science;
  • develop the ability to integrate and apply scientific knowledge and skills with other related disciplines;
  • recognise the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of science, and develop the attitude of responsible citizenship and commitment to promote personal and community health;
  • be prepared for further studies in STEM-related disciplines; and
  • become lifelong learners in science for personal development.

Curriculum Emphases

  1. Students learn with an investigative approach. Teachers guide and encourage our students through daily life examples and investigative experiments in order to build their interests in Science and Technology.
  2. This subject also focuses on training practical skills. Students are assigned to do almost all of the experiments.
