The girls are educated to think creatively, innovatively and flexibly and to engender empathy and consideration for others.

Leadership Programme
There is a strong emphasis on developing life skills and senior girls are involved in a pro-active and effective Leadership Committee and are given extensive training as Peer Mediators. Each Grade 7 is placed in a portfolio committee for the year. The Leadership Programme includes a Conflict Resolution Workshop for the Grade 6s and a Grade 7 Leadership Camp which is a much anticipated highlight for the girls in their final year of Primary School.
