Vision and Mission

The Science department seeks to provide every Cedarian with a Science education that prepares them to be creative thinkers in a connected community. Students will:
  • Acquire scientific literacy to participate in active discussions on science-related issues, contextualise them and work on solutions;
  • Engage in scientific inquiry where opportunities are provided to initiate the inquiry, design and conduct experiments, present and analyse data, interpret results and draw conclusions; and
  • Develop problem-solving skills to devise solutions to real world issues.

Applied Learning Programme: Creative Inventive Thinking Programme

The Creative Inventive Thinking (CIT) Programme aims to develop students into individuals who would approach challenges, especially in areas such as academic matters and community issues, with an idea-generation and problem-solving mindset. In doing so, they learn to be resourceful, to think divergently, to empathise with others and to arrive at solutions that are sensible and practicable.

All students from Primary 1 to Primary 6 have a period of CIT every week where they will be encouraged to exhibit and develop their creative and inventive thinking skills individually and in teams.
