Course information

  • Our Form 3 school-based curriculum emphasizes the training of our students to be active learners by adopting an inquiry-based learning approach. Students are encouraged to learn on their own initiatives through a scientific approach by observation, hypothesis making, experimental design, data processing, and drawing of conclusion. At the end of the course, students are required to work on a Scientific Investigation Project related to their own interested areas by demonstrating the aforesaid skills.

  • We focus not only on the delivery of textbook knowledge, but also the training of presentation skills, analytical thinking, logical reasoning and problem-solving skills through a scientific approach.

  • From time to time, teachers will organize class activities for students and initiate discussions relating to daily life phenomena. Through these, we hope to lead them into a deeper understanding of the biological principles behind the phenomena.

  • Our teachers make good use of the rich fauna and flora community in our campus to illustrate the life processes and interactions of organisms in a natural environment. Students always find it interesting and rewarding when they learn the subject matters in a natural setting.
