  • School Vision

    Leaders and Change-Makers

  • School Mission

    To nurture our learners to lead purposeful lives by guiding them to be morally upright, civic-minded, resilient, and future-ready

  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    We nurture our students to become Active Learners, Skilful Leaders of Self and Others, and to be Purposeful in Service. As Active Learners, our students are self-directed, demonstrate love for learning, and are challenged to apply their learning. As Skilful Leaders, our students understand themselves better, develop influential leadership skills, learn to work collaboratively, and lead with a strong moral foundation. Through Purposeful Service, our students develop active citizenship by building strong communities in school and beyond, learning to serve others, leading in community service, and taking responsibility for the environment as global citizens. We believe that learners are best nurtured in a safe and caring environment, and we aspire for all our students to be Leaders and Change-Makers, adding value to society. To provide a strong moral compass for our students, we develop in them the RESPIRE values (Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Innovative Spirit, Resilience, and Empathy). We believe every child can learn and must be developed to the fullest potential.
