Our goal is to develop in our
students the skills of inquiry and problem-solving which they can apply in
authentic, every-day situations through experiential learning opportunities.
By adopting a student – centric approach in our curriculum, instruction and assessment, we strive to develop in our students the 21st Century competencies. Problem-solving skills, inquiry-based learning and ICT tools have been infused into science lessons.
The Science department hopes to instill a sense of environmental awareness among students in Punggol Cove Primary School. To achieve this, several initiatives have been put in place. These include, setting up an Environmental Science Club, having an environmental awareness week and introducing a Clean Plate Project.
The Clean Plate Project aims to reduce food waste among the student population. Through the Clean Plate Project, students will learn to order only food that they can finish. Food wastes, which include orange peel and watermelon peel, will be placed into a food composter. Currently, the Clean Plate Project has been put on trial and is undertaken by some teachers on a small scale. The Project will be rolled out to a larger school population in the subsequent months.
