West View believes that all pupils must be given the opportunities for common shared experiences. This provides deep learning, allowing collaborative and effective learning to take place. In science, many engaging learning experiences are conducted for all levels.
School-based Shared Experiences

P4: A trip to the River Safari to learn more about the conservation efforts in Singapore in preserving its biodiversity.
P5: Handball Competition to experience what a system is like (many parts working together for a common goal/function).
