The Chemistry Department at Light International School is as old as the school. We in the department ensure that each of our students gains the most from their time with us. The department has a great team of well qualified and highly enthusiastic staff who guide the students through their IGCSEs and A levels.
IGCSE prepares students for Advanced Subsidiary and Advanced level which in turn give them a solid foundation for their pursuit of a university education. As a department, we take great pride in the fact that some of our students have gone on to pursue Chemistry and Chemistry-related courses at some of the most prestigious universities across the globe, thanks to the firm foundation established here.
We emphasize a practical approach to the teaching/learning process which includes participating in international project Olympiads including, but not limited to,Golden Climate International Environmental Project Olympiad, International Young Inventors Project Olympiad (IYIPO) and International Environmental Sustainability Project Olympiad (INESPO).
We have a state- of -the- art laboratory and ultra-modern classrooms that offer highly interactive environments for the dissemination of knowledge and skills. In addition, our classrooms are fitted with smart boards that enable us to engage in learner- centered interactive learning activities.
Through the use of ICT, our students are able to access lesson materials like class notes, worksheets, and topically arranged past paper exam questions as well as essential materials.
