Sec 2 Science Busking
Each year, our students have the opportunity to take part in Science Buskers, an annual competition organised by A*STAR and Science Centre Singapore. As a hands-on, interactive way of learning and sharing about Science, Science Busking sees students applying scientific concepts learnt to real-world situations and showcasing their ideas through skillful, live demonstrations using everyday objects. It is here that Science comes alive for our students, who experience first-hand just how powerful the subject is in undergirding all aspects of life!
Science Learning Journeys
Science Learning Journeys is a series of activities to enthuse our students to learn science beyond our classroom. It includes short workshops which allow them to apply what they have learnt in classroom to real world context. There are also research work which requires them to collect data for their experiment during School Holidays.
- Enrichment – Learning journey to fusion world, Surprising Science, Forensic Science, Cluster Science for Sec 1, NUS Physics Camp, AEM – Fighting Invisible Enemies
- Competitions – Singapore Junior Water Prize, Science Centre Research, Science Busking Festival
The study of Geography helps us explore and better understand the world we live in. At Regent Secondary School, we make Geography accessible to all students through our experiential learning curriculum, which incorporates Geographical Investigation (G.I.) across all levels. Such learning experiences enable our students to connect what they are learning to the world around them and to discover the real-world applications of various geographical concepts.
Examples of Geographical Investigation (G.I.) projects include:
- Secondary 1 – Testing water quality at Pang Sua Canal / Tropical rainforest exploration @ Singapore Botanic Gardens
- Secondary 2 – Housing perception and transport studies @ Yew Tee Point and Yew Tee MRT Station
- Secondary 3/4/5 – Everyday Geography Studies @ Downtown Singapore
Our students are also given the opportunity to participate in the following enrichment programmes and competitions:
- NUS Geography Challenge
- Tourism Competition
- Tourism modules at Ngee Ann Polytechnic
Above all, we hope for our young Geographers at Regent to be informed and concerned citizens who are able to tap on their geographical skills and knowledge to create a better, more sustainable future.
In Historical Investigations, students explore a range of authentic sources to glean perspectives of the lives of people in the past and infer on life old Singapore. Students also navigate through various historical sites in Singapore and encounter authentic learning experiences which help them connect with their learning.
- Secondary 1- Fort Canning: Students learnt about the history of Singapore before 1819 by analysing sources found at Fort Canning Hill.
- Secondary 2 – Battlebox: Battlebox is a former WWII British underground command centre inside Fort Canning Hill in the heart of Singapore City. It was part of the headquarters of Malaya Command, the army which defended Malaya and Singapore in WWII. It was inside the Battlebox that the British made the decision to surrender Singapore to the invading Japanese on 15 February 1942. Students visited the Battlebox which has been converted into a museum to learn stories on the fall of Malaya and Singapore in WWII.
Conversational Chinese and Malay Language (CCM) Programme
Conversational Chinese and Malay Language (CCM) Programme aims to strengthen Singapore’s multiracial identity and expose students to a third language. Students will have an elementary understanding of a different mother tongue language and have the opportunity to explore cultural aspects of a particular ethnic group. Being able to communicate with others in a different mother tongue language will enable students to expand their cultural consciousness beyond their individual ethnic groups. At the end of the programme, students will be equipped with basic conversational skills to enable them to interact with native speakers confidently.
- Introduction to basic vocabulary.
- Ways of greetings
- Reading aloud
- Basic sentence formation
- Introduction to festivals and culture
