Meanwhile, we train our students to be biliterate and trilingual by providing them with a learning environment that is conducive to the learning of languages.

Apart from the formal curriculum, ample opportunities are provided for students to learn beyond the classrooms. Various kinds of activities including visits, study, trips and sharing sessions are organised to enrich students' learning experiences. These activities provide the moral and civic education that they need for life-wide learning.
