Giving Back to the Community
The community involvement programme aims to encourage the students to be engaged with the community and become a life-long learner and influential leader as they learn to serve and put others before themselves.Head, heart and hand are the three components that we emphasize in the community service programme. Head represents the knowledge to be shared and the offered solution for the community; heart represents compassion and love to be shared to others; and a helping hand to reach out to the community.
Following are the Community Services provided by the school :
