Character and Citizenship Education has been the cornerstone to develop each child academically, socially and morally. Hence, the school embarked on a programme of personal and social effectiveness for students based on Stephen Covey’s seven habits for highly effective people. The school’s core values have been aligned with the seven habits. Students learn and internalise these core values through a variety of means: stories, movie clips, songs, art, animal mascots, motivational badges and role-modelling.
