Making A Difference

The concept of community is a key element of our school’s ethos. In line with this, we offer our students a multitude of opportunities to connect with and assist local communities. This builds a sense of compassion in young learners and provides them an avenue to put their learning into practice in the real world.

Through the initiatives they participate in, students also learn how to manage projects, create community partnerships, participate in field learning activities, and engage in reflective and critical thinking in relation to their experiences. Ultimately, this gives them a broader view of the world and nurtures a dedication to lifelong learning.

Some of the charities we are glad to be supporting include:

Ranji Nursing Home

Administrated by Madam Ranji, the nursing home is located at Jalan Rambutan, Air Itam with a group of 20 residents.

SPCA Penang

The SPCA Penang, formerly known as RSPCA, was founded in 1948. It is a non-profit community-based organisation whose primary roles are those of protecting and caring for cats and dogs.
