1. The Character Development Programme was introduced by the Ministry of Education to promote character building in schools. In line with the Desired Outcomes of Education, the aims of the Character Development Programme are:-
a) To promote the character and leadership development of our pupils;
b) To inculcate national values and develop a sense of belonging to the nation;
c) To equip pupils with skills and knowledge to enable them to lead a meaningful, purposeful and healthy life;
d) To expose pupils to different disciplines and broaden their horizon;
e) To complement the formal curriculum and CCA in achieving the Desired Outcomes of Education.
