- Developing care and love, teamwork and leadership among the students.
All the activities are conducted by the students. This is to train and develop the teamwork skill and prepare them for their future undertaking
Examples of activities are aerobics, gotong royong, tradisional games, students cultural presentation, motivational session in school and a trip to the Hot Water Park. Students are also taught to cook rice in the bamboo, this is a survival activity for the students.
