This encourages them to trust, tolerate, care and appreciate each other. They develop interpersonal and cooperative working skills that enhance their ability to sustain a family and work relationships in future.

Active learning features adventurous activities on water and land. Through active outdoor learning, children develop experimental, enquiry, reflection, cooperative, review and feedback learning skills.
