Key Department Programmes

Heritage Gallery

To celebrate the school’s 45th Anniversary, the Heritage Gallery has been set up. Students, staff and stakeholders of Broadrick learn more about the school’s history and heritage; thereby fostering greater sense of belonging to the school.

Katong Trail

A signature programme in Broadrick Secondary School, all Secondary One students embark on Katong Trail. Students learn about the area’s rich culture and heritage, visiting historical sites such as the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple and Saint Hilda’s Church and old favourite hangout joints such as Chin Mee Chin Confectionery. 

Social Studies and National Education

Besides learning content during curriculum time, students deepen their understanding of the issues learnt in Social Studies by taking part in authentic learning tasks. The Secondary 3 and 4 students designed educational games to teach their juniors about Racial Harmony and Total Defence respectively.

Geographical Investigation

Secondary 1 students dive into a Water-Trail at a local reservoir where they investigate the cleanliness of our local water bodies while Secondary 2 students explore the deeper meaning of how housing within this city creates a sense of belonging amongst the city’s residents. Upper Secondary Geography students investigate micro-climate and issues relating to tourism. These authentic tasks help students gain a deeper understanding of geographical concepts.


Historical Investigation

Lower Secondary History students were given the opportunity to conduct historical investigation through an inquiry-based learning approach. Secondary 1 students investigate locals’ lives during Colonial Singapore before WWII while Secondary 2 students delve into the memories of the Japanese Occupation in Singapore. This year, as part of the investigation, our Sec 2 students visited the Changi Chapel Museum to gather sources and to learn about the lives of locals during the Japanese Occupation. Students are compelled to identify relevant historical sources and to think about them analytically in order to help themselves answer the inquiry question.
