Student Curriculum Development


To emphasize the 'total' development process, students are given opportunity to enrich themselves and maximise their abilities through new experiences. The studentl development programme aims at exposing every single student to the impact of participation in and contribution to sports and community service, and the development of student leaders.

Service within the school community earns recognition. Service beyond the school is compulsory and planned, with opportunities created for the students to be personally involved. Our students are nurtured to look beyond themselves and to the well-being of their peers and the larger community.

The student development programme are as follows:

With the momentum gathered, our students have every opportunity of leaving the school as well-rounded individuals.


Student Leadership


The development of student leaders is taken seriously in the school. Special training sessions are held both within and outside school to ensure that students who are appointed as leaders are sufficiently trained. Students who are not formally appointed leaders will also be given opportunities to develop their leadership skills.
