As a school that cares, we have infused Humane Education into our curriculum with an aim to nurture students to be all-rounded and caring individuals who are aware of the needs of the less fortunate, and do their bit to contribute to making society a better place.

In this regard, the English and French Department has been making a continued endeavor to instill in the minds of our students the importance of caring for and giving back to the community, both locally and globally. Through Humane Education, we also aim to nurture students to become charitable and sensitive to the needs of the less fortunate in their community, regardless of age, status and ethnic background.

Starting from last year, Humane Education has been incorporated in English class activities like poster design, poem writing and letter writing. A few of our students even visited an art exhibition showcasing magnificent artworks of those afflicted by the wars in Syria. Among these exhibits included works of our own students, such as poems, posters and artworks with captions relating to the refugee crisis.

To raise students’ awareness of the rampant crisis in the Middle East, we have also invited passionate advocates of Humane Education from Love Without Borders and Mini Acts for the Greater Good to give a talk to our students on this topic. Our students have responded positively and aspire not only to be more appreciative of what they have but also to help the community in any way they can, whether big or small.

Many innocent people in Syria are in dire need of help and we believe that it is our mission to raise awareness. Though students may not be able to support these people financially, they can spread awareness and cause a ripple effect that reaches many people both near and far.
