Key Programmes

Secondary 1 Mathematics Enrichment

Secondary 1 students are involved in Mathematics Trails in this year’s Mathematics Enrichment day. The students use smart devices to go to different stations within the school compound and participate in interactive activities / quizzes through these smart devices to learn about financial literacy such as personal finance, financial terms and budgeting. These hands-on activities incorporate ICT to enable them to experience the real-life application of mathematics in everyday lives.

Talent Development Programme

Students with strong potential in Mathematics are identified early and exposed to higher forms of Mathematical training beyond the curriculum. They are provided with many opportunities to further stretch their abilities in national-level competitions such as Singapore Mathematics Olympiads and Singapore Mathematics Project Festivals.

 

The Singapore Mathematical Project Festival is a nationwide event organised annually by the Singapore Mathematical Society to encourage students to explore Mathematics beyond the classroom work. Selected students worked on a project aimed at carrying out and presenting innovative and creative work in Mathematics. Students then presented their findings in a report and an oral presentation. Our students have managed to achieve a Bronze award both this 2018 and in 2017.
