Student Development

Keeping our eyes on the school motto, the Student Development Team carefully designs a ‘Realising the Star Within’ learning experience to support the delivery of North Star Education Programme (NSEP) for the holistic development of students. It seeks to provide varied and authentic opportunities for North Stars to develop their character, social-emotional competencies and the emerging 21st Century Competencies. To achieve student-centricity, specific learning experiences are designed to meet the developmental and progression needs of North Stars at each level.
