Dunman High Programme
Dunman High Programme (DHP) is a 6-year integrated programme leading directly to the GCE ‘A’-Level Examinations. It provides academically talented students with an enriched curriculum that aims to provide them with a stimulating environment that would deepen their appetite for in-depth academic pursuit.
At Dunman High, we believe in providing a holistic and well-rounded education that sees our students through not just the national examinations but also their development as confident leaders with a global outlook through a two-pronged approach; namely DHP-Academic and DHP-Student Development.
Philosophy of Education
“Every Dunmanian a Leader of Honour”
In Dunman High School, we view character development as fundamental to the education of our students. This view of education is strongly influenced by Confucius:
“To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”
According to Confucius, the cultivation of self (ie self-awareness, being in touch with the inner self and development of the right moral values) is the beginning of a person’s growth and development into a leader of honour as spelled out in our motto, 诚信勇忠 (Honesty, Trustworthiness, Moral Courage, Loyalty) and Dunmanian Outcomes.
In this way, our students first cultivate a heart for care which evokes compassion and a desire to understand others. This attitude of care becomes an impetus to serve as they realise that the service to others is basic to building of a better world. Our students are, thus, inspired to appreciate the society in which they lived in, to understand the community in a local as well as global sense and to see that they have a role to play in shaping society for the better.
As an SAP school committed to bilingualism, our students learn in a unique environment where they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to help them to fulfill their roles as leaders. The activities they encounter at school reflect the activities that they would encounter later in life. This means that all students must be educated as a social individual and form bonds with the society in which he lives in.
