Sec 2 Week of Holistic Experiential Enrichment Learning
The school adopts a holistic approach towards imbuing in the students an adventurous spirit and a love for outdoor education. All Secondary 2 students are given the opportunity to spend 4 Days 3 Nights on Pulau Ubin for an expeditionary programme that consists of initiative and ropes confidence elements, as well as land & sea expeditions.
The objectives of the course are aligned to the Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Framework (MOE, 2005), in which the five key learning outcomes of the course are:
a) Self Awareness
Act responsibly to oneself, others and the environment.

Understand the key factor of contributing to teamwork.
c) Social Awareness
Recognise the need for perseverance in completing tasks.

In the process, these objectives are met when pupils learn about their own strengths and weaknesses; the importance of mental tenacity; and effective leadership skills in overcoming the challenges posed to them. The experiential course is also aimed at facilitating social bonding among the pupils, further enhance their life skills as well as to develop their character.PEDAL (PE Departmental Assessment of Learning)
