Learning Alive! Augmented Reality Mobile Trails

The school’s environment itself is a learning playground for students’ acquisition of Science knowledge and concepts. Our Learning Alive! Eco-trail boasts thematic gardens including a Fernery, a Cacti Garden, Herbs and Spices Garden, the Carnivorous plants plot, an Eco-pond, Planting Pits, as well as our latest addition, a Butterfly Maze trail! Our learning alive! Packages bring student through adventures in the form of gamified learning using augmented reality on mobile applications. Through such learning experiences, students develop a keen sense of wonder when acquiring process skills and knowledge about the natural world.


T(h)inkering with S.T.E.M Learning

Adopting a fun, creative and hands-on approach to learning Science, our STEM learning programme involves recess activities (Maker’s Monday, Science games café) and in-curriculum performance tasks which provide tinkering challenges integrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M) learning.

·         P3 Sailboat Challenge

·         P4 Interest-based learning Heat Challenge

·         P5 Water Purification Challenge

·         P6 Toy-making Challenge

 

Cross-curricular integrations help students better visualize and understand concepts in an enjoyable & engaging manner in real world contexts of problem solving.



Go-Green @ SDPS
The Earth is our home. It is everyone’s responsibility to take good care of it. Thus our Go-Green programme includes raising students’ awareness and understanding of environmental issues, so that it will heighten their sense of responsibility and care for Mother Earth. Some activities to encourage this include working on various green activities such as planting of vegetables in the planting plots and recycling of plastic bottles and textbooks. There are also termly talks and activities on anti-littering, waste minimisation, saving energy, conserving water and the 4Rs.
