Programmes

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.

ICT-Enabled Lesson

Teachers leverage on ICT tools to teach Science topics and build in the students, skills in doing self-directed research. ICT tools used by the teachers also help to incorporate elements of independent and collaborative learning.

Learn @ Science Centre

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.
