- To Provide Quality Learning And Nurture The Spirit of Caring
In Marsiling Secondary School, character development is not seen as a separate programme. We believe that everything that happens in school has an impact on pupils. Hence Marsiling Character and Citizenship Education Framework takes a comprehensive approach adapted from Lickona’s 12 Points Approach to Character Education, to develop the pupils holistically. Careful attention is given to the school culture, relationships and the formal and informal curricular so that values can be taught and caught.
The framework aims to develop performance character and moral character, so that pupils would always strive to do the best work they can as well as treat each other with care and respect. This is embodied in the 3As: Attendance & appearance, Attentiveness and Achievement, as well as our guiding principle of high care and high expectations.
