Aims & Objectives

The broad aims of the Biology curriculum are to enable students to: 
  • develop and maintain an interest in biology, a sense of wonder and curiosity about the living world, and a respect for all living things and the environment; 
  • construct and apply knowledge of biology, understand the nature of science in biology-related contexts, and appreciate the relationships between biological science and other disciplines; 
  • develop the ability to make scientific inquiries; think scientifically, critically and creatively; and solve biology-related problems individually and collaboratively;  
  • understand the language of science and communicate ideas and views on biology-related issues;  
  • be aware of the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of biology, and be able to make informed decisions and judgments on biology-related issues; and 
  • develop an attitude of responsible citizenship, and a commitment to promote personal and community health.
