S.P.H.E Programme

Social Personal Health Education is an important part of the education of young people.

S.P.H.E. ensures that each child receives a well-rounded education, so that on completion of his/her formal education, he/she may emerge as a self-disciplined, responsible and well-adjusted citizen, capable of playing an active and positive role in a modern society.
