The Science (Junior Form) curriculum provides science-related learning experiences that develop students’ interest in science and to 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.

  • 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 an attitude of responsible citizenship and a commitment to promote personal and community health;
