  • Democracy: Promoting democratic principles and practices within the school environment, teaching students about rights, responsibilities, and active participation in decision-making processes.
  • Environmentalism: Instilling a sense of responsibility and stewardship for the environment, emphasizing sustainability and the importance of conservation.
  • Adventure: Encouraging personal growth and self-discovery through adventure and exploration, pushing students beyond their comfort zones to build resilience and confidence.
  • Leadership: Developing leadership skills and qualities, preparing students to take on roles of responsibility and to inspire and guide others effectively.
  • Service: Fostering a commitment to service and community involvement, encouraging students to contribute positively to society and to understand the importance of helping others.
