Also in the curriculum

Sports

Since physical activity is essential to physical and mental well-being, sports is a key component of our curriculum programme.

Structured sports sessions (one and a half hours) are timetabled weekly.

All Sixth Form students have use of the College sports facilities including:

  • running track
  • Astro-turf football pitch
  • Indoor sports pavillion
  • Students have free use of the gym in the sports complex after 3pm

More information about the Sports Complex can be viewed here.

PDP – Personal Development Programme

The Personal Development Programme is part of the students’ curriculum. The purpose of this programme is to help students acquire knowledge, skills and dispositions to manage self and relationships effectively. It also helps students make responsible decisions essential for their personal and social well-being.

The Personal Development Programme is designed to aid students in their personal growth and character formation so as to become, resilient, responsible, proactive and contributing members of society. Discussions and debates on issues and current affairs which affect our daily life are an integral part of the programme.

In addition to this, a Work Ethics Seminar is organised in the second year during which professional speakers are invited to debate with the students on work ethical issues.


Magis 45

The MAGIS 45 session is an explorative space that provides Sixth Form students with  moments of reflection and evaluation, helping them to make their best out of their life and improve the quality of what they do. It aims at empowering students to continually develop their potential and connect to others’ needs.

The session provides moments where students can engage critically with current trends and issues related to sustainable development, social responsibility, and other topics of interest to their well-being as global citizens.

Simply, MAGIS 45 invites students to be truly alive by doing more, being more and achieving more than originally thought possible, for the greater glory of God and the common good.

Methodology

Our Methodology Course aims to teach students the basics of sound logic and argumentation skills in writing assignments and essays by addressing the requirements of academic writing and reasoning. It helps bridge the gap between the simplistic, formulaic style associated with secondary level standard, and a new, more rigorous academic mindset which is required at post-secondary and undergraduate level.
