To engage our students by instilling healthy curiosity and a spirit of inquiry, equipping them with knowledge and skills and, imbuing in them the commitment to care for the environment.
Damai Primary School strives to provide our students with authentic learning experiences to generate their interests in Science and hence, build a strong foundation in the subject and achieve excellence. Our teachers build on their learners’ natural curiosity and provide ample opportunities for them to explore Science. Students are engaged in hands-on activities where they learn to develop the necessary skills and processes and understand themselves and their environment better.

The P4 students had a great hands-on session at the Light Enrichment Workshop where they learnt about refection, refraction, colours of the rainbow and shadow. They worked collaboratively in groups to conduct a few experiments designed to help them explore concepts related to Light and Shadow.
