CURIOUS SCIENCE LEARNERS - Garden Trails
There are four themed gardens in our school. They are the Butterfly Garden, Herb and Edible Garden, Skyrise Garden, and Fernery.
Garden Trails: Lower Primary
Integration of English STELLAR Programme with the learning of nature and life in our gardens. Our students get to explore the gardens, sow seeds and even harvest.
Primary 3 students observing the parts of a plant
In the process of understanding the biodiversity of plants in our garden, our students acquire ICT skills and apply them during Science lessons.
Students observing the spores underneath the leaves of ferns
Our students learn Adaptation in Animals and Reproduction of Plants. Our audio-guided trail and QR codes allow them to explore the garden independently while learning about the various animals and plants.

We have reopened the WOW corner in Yumin Primary School! In efforts to drive the natural curiosity for Science in students, we roster students down to the WOW corner during recess. At the WOW corner, students are able to observe our school pets, the stick insects and mealworm beetle. They can also enjoy reading Science magazine and watch Science related shows!

WORK LIKE A SCIENTIST - SEE 2021 @ Dunman Secondary
In 2021, Dunman Secondary School organised the inaugural STEM Exploratory Experience (SEE). STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM education promotes critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and teamwork.
Student participants were invited to a game challenge for each course. The top 6 scorer of each game challenge will win an AR enabled Merge Cube. We are proud to present the winners from Yumin Primary School, who displayed exceptional thinking skills during the game challenge. Well done Yumin Champions!
