Our science programs cover the fundamental aspects of science learning, with a focus on the STEM (Science, technology engineering and mathematics) Integrated approach. The programs are run by our qualified STEM teacher, who creates a fun, inspiring and hands-on experience for the children to explore and harness their natural curiosity about the world. Children learn through impressive experiments, games and explorations, such as creating and launching their very own Rocketship, or discovering the world of dinosaurs by digging up and studying fossils!

Our chess teacher, who has been awarded an International Masters title in Chess, has adopted a child-oriented approach to teaching the game and logic related skills.

Our music teacher and her much loved wooden monkey friend, Bobby Dobby, introduce a range of fascinating sounds that have us eager to sing and dance.
