What Our Subject is About

The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist in
the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything
is completely different.
Aldous Huxley


The study of History piques students’ interest in and curiosity about the past, and through this, develops and cultivates critical thinking skills necessary for independent thought and making informed judgements about historical issues and events. Students of History are able to communicate substantiated arguments in a clear and well-structured manner, and develop empathy with people living in diverse places and at different times. Through the curriculum, students also develop core competencies and dispositions necessary in navigating the challenges of the 21st century. History exposes students to multiple perspectives; hones their ability to assess evidence and evaluate conflicting interpretations to make informed judgments; enables them to understand change and develop global awareness and cross-cultural skills in order to play an active role in future developments in society. 


What We Do To Develop Students' Interest/Abilities

The learning process goes well beyond the confines of the classroom, and students are given opportunities to pursue their interests further, gain valuable experience, and have fun through both academic and co-curricular activities. Such pursuits include but are not limited to: undertaking an independent research paper at the H3 level in Year 6; essay competitions organized by the United Nations Association of Singapore; conferences; quizzes and academic workshops. 

Who We Are

We are team of teachers with diverse personalities, interests and strengths, brought together by the same passion for the discipline and mission in sharing the value of History with our students.


What Our Students Say

“What interests me most about the subject is seeing how multiple factors come together to form an event, and the causality of events. It’s interesting to see how history has shaped our present day.”
- Y5 student


“History is very interesting to learn because it teaches us about the way in which governments interact with each other today and provides context on international relations. It also keeps us engaged and interested in foreign affairs beyond our shores, e.g. ASEAN or the UN”
- Y6 student


“History teachers are without a doubt the best teachers you will ever meet, and the subject itself is a refreshing experience!”
- Y6 student
