We are the only school in Malawi that offers the Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS). JASS develops young people by promoting regular physical activity, exploring personal interests and working for the good of the community and the environment. It also encourages students to complete an outdoor activity or challenge. Our students get the opportunity to volunteer and support those in need. Through our JASS program and our association with the Rotary International Interact scheme our students are involved in a number of community -based projects benefitting the less-privileged members of Malawian society. They also have opportunities to plan and host their own events such as movie nights, pool parties and games days, enhancing their leadership, organizational and team skills.
We also strive to develop enquiring minds and encourage creativity by offering programs in Art, Drama, Music, Computer Science and Design and Technology. These courses include graphic design, architectural drawing and 3D modeling and manufacturing, made possible through our partnership with The Polytechnic.
