The Team Building Activities are designed in alignment to the school’s core values- Commitment, Compassion and Cheerfulness (3Cs).

Team building activities for pupils were conducted at the beginning of the year for them to bond and get to know one another and to relate the values learnt in the session to their real life situations.
