CLE Curriculum Focus

The Character and Leadership Education (CLE) curriculum at RGS focuses on equipping the pupils with values, knowledge, and skills that will guide them to make appropriate choices, determine their behaviour and attitudes towards self, others and the community. These positive attitudes will develop them into morally upright, caring and responsible citizens and leaders.

The CLE curriculum provides students with a clearer understanding of community values, the relationships of these to personal values, and the skills necessary for dealing with issues.
