Within such an environment, each student will be empowered and inspired to reach his or her full academic, emotional, physical and spiritual potential to serve mankind.

Our Ten Core Values

  • Love First. Love for humanity and teaching with love. The school abhors caning or any form of physical, emotional or mental abuse.

  • Uniqueness of the Child. We recognize that every child is unique and special and will be accorded the respect, love and dignity s/he deserves as a child of the universe.

  • Holistic development. We strive to empower and inspired each child to reach his or her full academic, emotional, physical and spiritual potential to serve society.

  • Disciplined mind in a disciplined body. We train children to be of good behaviour and law-abiding and respect for each other’s rights, respect for punctuality and the elderly, avoidance of bad and uncouth language, bullying and exercise self-control.

  • Critical Thinking. We dedicate ourselves to train the child to objectively analyse, reflect and reason to guide a belief or action in pursuant of academic excellence. To further critical thinking, each student MUST read at least one-story book every month. The one-one-one rule.

  • Exploration. We promote teaching and learning environment that fosters curiosity and questioning to enable the current knowledge, identities, experiences, and worldviews of the students to be used as a platform to build on and a guide for navigating new learning. We encourage students to work collaboratively and independently

  • Innovation. We stimulate intellectual curiosity by encouraging students to take risks, challenge the status quo, and seek innovative solutions, explore innovative technologies and virtual worlds to transform the known to the unknown and challenge beliefs and assumptions and apply imaginative processes to create new works

  • Cleanliness. We provide clean and serene atmosphere and surroundings for learning. We strive to inculcate decency in dressing habits, person hygiene, clean oral and body care.

  • Teamwork. We believe that child development is a teamwork between parents, teachers and the child. We all have a role and responsibilities towards developing a responsible individual in the society.

  • Leadership, Self-Motivation and Confidence. We recognize that Leadership is about service to society and everyone must be motivated and confidently provide leadership wherever s/he finds him/herself in society.
