Science Curriculum Framework

In line with the Ministry of Education’s thrust of Science education in Singapore, the Science curriculum in Queenstown Secondary School aims to prepare our students to be sufficiently adept as effective citizens, able to function in and contribute to an increasingly technologically-driven world. The curriculum also aims to enable our students to see the relevance of Science to their daily lives, the society and the environment.  The focus of the curriculum is to inculcate the spirit of scientific inquiry, nurturing our students to be the inquirer and our teachers to be the leader of inquiry.
