Science Explorer Camp!

About 60 Secondary 1 and 2 students, in the Greendale Scientist Programme (GSP), participated in the Applied Materials Science Explorer Camp, held at United World College South East Asia (UWCSEA) this year. This camp is supported by the North East Community Development Council (NECDC). The programme is a collaboration between NECDC and Applied Materials South East Asia Pte Ltd to inspire and spark off interest in children with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It aims to promote innovative thinking through Science workshops and hands-on experiments that could further their learning in Science.

This year, students learnt the science behind up-cycling and understand the circuitry in battery-operated toys. Working in groups of 4 or 5, the students repaired and used their newly acquired soldering skills to creatively use discarded toys to build their own mini-robots to compete in a robot challenge.

Physical & Sports Education Conference 2017

The Physical & Sports Education Conference (PSEC) 2017 was held on 28 and 29 August 2017, at the Singapore Sports School. The conference was intended for PE practitioners to examine fundamental tenets of quality teaching and learning, and deepen their understanding and application of pedagogical practices.


PSEC 2017 Keynote Address by Mr Ng Chee Meng, Minister (MOE Schools)

The PE Department presented under Strand B – Innovative Learning and Teaching through Leveraging Technology. It is believed that technology, when used purposefully in PE, Sports and Outdoor Education, can have a significant impact on the engagement of students and help them to enhance their learning. The meaningful use of technology acts as a catalyst to enhance students’ appreciation of the application of skills in authentic situations, increase verbalisation of their deeper understanding, and enable a transfer of practice from one context to another.


GDLS PEeps Presenting to Fellow PE Practitioners

Orienteering is typically conducted using a map and a compass. While this skill is useful to know, the current generation is more “tech-savvy” and prefer using technology to aid in navigating. This preference, coupled with a high mobile penetration rate in Singapore, provided the impetus for adopting technology in orienteering lessons.


Our HOD PE/CCA Presenting the Orienteering App

At Greendale Secondary, we use a variety of free apps in mobile tablets for orienteering lessons, which allow student-centred collaborative learning to take place. Hence, students are more engaged and have become more responsible for their own learning.
