  • Health and Fitness Week:
    • Our Health and Fitness Week encourages Merahans to lead a healthy lifestyle through physical fitness, mental health and proper dietary choices. Assembly talks and various activities are conducted by the PE department throughout this week.
  • DARE Programme:
    • The objective of the programme is to equip students with CPR/AED skills from a young age. Through this, safety awareness among students is heightened and they gain the confidence to respond to  a cardiac arrest. It also provides an opportunity to inclucate  21st CC traits in students and reinforce their commitment to lead a healthy lifestyle. Lessons are held during curriculum time and teaching tools such as a half body mannequin and mock AED machines are used to make the learning as authentic as possible.
