‘Rooted Locally, Growing Globally’


Department Highlights

The Humanities Education in St. Patrick’s School hopes to develop Patricians into informed, concerned and participative citizens. We also hope that our students will become responsible citizens who are equipped with skills to deal with societal issues through our programme. The Humanities Investigations (HI, GI & II respectively) continue to be our focal programme where authentic learning and joy of learning can take place. The investigations provide platforms for our students to be empowered, be good team players and also to apply 21st century skills and competencies.

“The arts and humanities define who we are as a people. That is their power – to remind us of what we each have to offer, and what we all have in common. To help us understand our history and imagine our future. To give us hope in the moments of struggle and to bring us together when nothing else will.” – Michelle Obama
