Our Vision

Inquiring minds, Inspired learners

Our Mission
To empower students in the process of lifelong learning by igniting their curiosity through discovery of the natural and physical world around them, with a heart for the environment.  

Our Approach
Using the Science Curriculum Framework as our guiding principle, we want to inculcate the spirit of scientific inquiry in our students. Leveraging on the students’ curiosity and their innate nature to want to explore things around them, we hope that they will be  quipped with (a) Knowledge, Understanding and application of Science, (b) Process skills and (c) with the right ethics and attitudes. With these knowledge, skills and attitudes, they will be able to apply them in their daily lives, society and the environment in order to improve their lives. The teacher plays the role of a facilitator to impart the excitement and value of Science to our students.

Spiral Curriculum
Knowledge, understanding and application of Science The Science syllabus is divided two blocks: lower and upper blocks with five different themes. The lower block builds the strong foundation for the deeper learning in the upper block. The following table shows our flow of themes from Primary three to six.

Inquiry-based Science Programmes
To cultivate pupils’ passion and interest in science learning and to develop a sense of inquiry in their quest for Science knowledge and in life, we provide hands-on experiences for pupils to explore, experience, experiment and investigate. Through all these, our pupils will then be able to develop skills, habits of mind and attitudes necessary not only for Science but also for life. 

These are some of the programmes for different levels at Edgefield.

Environment Science in Edgefield

Environmental science is an interdisciplinary field that spans from the physical sciences to the social sciences. It encompasses everything from physics, chemistry, biology and geography to resource management and conservation.

Here at Edgefield Primary School, environmental science is brought into the daily lives of our pupils through the implementation of activities throughout the year. Awareness and knowledge of our environment is a benefit that all pupils stand to gain from our programmes.
