The development of our students in the cognitive domain requires the teaching and learning of knowledge and thinking skills. At Horizon Primary School, we provide a joyful learning environment that offers students a diverse range of authentic learning experiences, challenging age-appropriate tasks as well as opportunities to cooperate and collaborate with other students. For example, the school has a Leaders’ Trail @ Horizon where students can have hands-on experiences studying the flora and fauna in the eco-garden when learning about diversity in Science.
