Orchid Hybridisation Programme (Biology)
Over a series of meticulously-planned workshops, students learnt about the physiology and anatomy of an orchid plant and the process of orchid hybridisation. This provided a unique real-world context for learning relevant topics in the Pure Biology and Science (Biology) syllabuses.
As part of the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2016, students successfully cultivated the golden orchid — a hybrid named Dendrobium TWSS 50.
In 2018, the school helped in the production of a documentary titled ‘The Wish’ where students helped to fulfil the wish of a physically challenged elderly man, Mr Tan, by teaching him the intricate process of orchid hybridisation. He was then presented with an orchid hybrid named after him.
