Vision   Inquiry Minds, Exploring Horizon
Mission   Enthuse learners through innovation and exploration
Goals   At the end of their primary education in Mee Toh School, students will be able to
  • Be curious about their environment
  • Use scientific terms and concepts to understand themselves and the world around them 
  • Develop process skills, habits of mind and attitudes necessary for scientific inquiry
  • Use scientific knowledge and methods in making personal decisions
  • Appreciate how Science influence people and the environment
Key Programmes
With the emphasis on inquiry-based learning, green spaces within the school compound have been converted into learning corners for students. The trails are made up of stations that allow students to explore and discover for themselves more about plants. All the trails are designed based on the Science syllabus topics and the process skills are covered across each level. 

To further encourage self-directed learning and communication skills, the students are using QR codes and interaction tools such as Thinglink which bring still images to life with texts, interactive links and video clips, supported through IPad to study the various plants in different stations and to carry out their own investigations and collaborate with one another in the research. 

Primary 3 Hydroponics Programme


The programme aims to engage students in small scale farming through the growing of organic vegetables. This authentic learning requires the students to plant the seedlings, monitor the growth and harvest the full grown vegetables. The experience supplements and reinforces the students' understanding of the functions of plant parts. 

Primary 4 NEWater Visitor Centre Learning Journey
NEWater.gifThe science programme for the Primary 4 students includes a learning journey to NEWater Visitor Centre to participate in the NEWater Scientist Programme to learn more about Singapore's past water challenges, the nation's four national taps and discover the science behind NEWater. The students will also understand that each of them can play an important role in helping Singapore to conserve water and achieve water sustainability.
Process Skill Learning Package
Science process skills are essential for scientific inquiry. These are skills that scientists use in investigating the natural world. Research has indicated that science process skills are best learnt when they are used to understand specific scientific content, and thus the purpose of the Process Skills Learning Package. The science process skills such as classify, observe, compare, conclude and infer are learnt progressively from Primary 3 to Primary 6. 

School-wide Environmental Programmes

In line with the school value "Care", the programmes aim to inculcate strong green practices in school. The students are strongly encourages to start from "Self" in taking care of the school environment as the school is their second home. Various recycling efforts are constantly carried out like "Bring Your Own Newspapers" on every Wednesday, which is strongly supported by our PATH. The school commemorates Earth Day annually, when both staff and students pledge their commitment to care for the environment. The school aims to increase everyone's awareness about the environment as well as to demonstrate daily the care for our environmental through changes in personal habits.

Community Outreach
outreach.gifIn 2017, our students reached out to the residents of Kovan through G!nnovation showcase on 2nd September. Our students displayed confidence and knowledge in communicating the school's environmental programmes to the Mayor of North East District, Mr Desmond Choo. Visitors to the booth were taught an upcycling activity. During the Punggol North Eco Carnival on 18th November, our students had a meaningful time engaging the residents of Punggol 21 Estate.

Ecology Programme

In 2016, the Primary 4 students had the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the relationship between the flora and fauna in our school garden. Students headed outdoors to observe and explore the various types of plants in the garden and eco-pond. The students had a lot of fun and also learnt the importance of caring for our environment. 

Partnering with Our Parents - A Science Workshop for Parents
parents.gifIn April 2017, a science workshop was conducted for parents of the Primary 5 students. The focus of the workshop was to share with parents on how to more effectively engage their children in developing the curiosity and passion in science through 
  1. doing and learning science together with the child, 
  2. providing the child with more positive science learning experiences by encouraging them to think about and interact with the world around them, 
  3. doing activities which allow the child to use their senses.

The parents went through several hands-on activities which helped them to gain a better understanding of the process skills and possible questions which could be generated. Some activities which can be easily carried out at home and related to the learning of science, as well as revision strategies were also shared with the parents.
