    • Health Week:
      • Our Health Week encourages Merahans to lead a healthy lifestyle through physical fitness, mental health and proper dietary choices.

    • 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 inculcate 21st Century Competencies traits in students and reinforce their commitment to lead a healthy lifestyle.
      • Lessons are held during Health Week and teaching tools such as a half body mannequin and mock AED machines are used to make the learning as authentic as possible.
      • As of 2018, our entire student population has gone through this programme.

      • Our lower secondary students have embarked on OE lessons since 2017.
