Humanities


Learning philosophy

We believe that students learning should be focused on developing their understanding through critical thinking and collaborative learning. Learning should be authentic that helps students to form connections and relations to community, nation and the world and makes students curious about the world around them. Through their learning, students will nurture values of empathy, appreciation of diversity, resilience, integrity.


Learning outcomes:

 In line with the school’s vision, we seek to develop critical thinkers and collaborative learners who have a sense of appreciation of the humanities and the world around us. We also seek to develop concerned global citizens who are grounded in sound values.
