Multiple Pathways of Success


We provide a variety of opportunities and multiple pathways for diverse learners, catering to their strengths and interests, while allowing them to grow their passions and develop their potential. We support their overall well-being on their educational journey and help them develop resilience in the face of challenges and setbacks. We acknowledge that progress can take different directions for different people and we need to have broader definitions for success. This is why the system provides pathways for U-turns, sidesteps and specialisation, to help our students establish a suitable foundation for their future career.



We will continue to invest in developing different education pathways and creating more opportunities to make them available and accessible to all. We are committed to ensuring that there are good jobs for all, while providing resources to support and uplift the less advantaged.


I will develop a mindset to define success on my own terms and represent values that are true to myself. I will do my best in valuing every member of society by practicing empathy.
