We will be directing our efforts on activities and events that will provide sustainable growth to our organization. Thus, this will be a year that will test our ability to grow and develop as an organization, making use of our internal resources, talents and abilities.

Now on its 2nd year, the Medal of Excellence Awards Night will be held in April to recognize outstanding students who will graduate for school year 2014-15 in March.

We will commence our countdown to our 15th year as an organization when we celebrate our 14th Foundation Day in August this year.
