  • Dunman High Programme
    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 礼记 大学 有言 大学之道 在明明德 在亲民 在止于善 欲治其国者 先齐其家 欲齐其家者 先修其身 身修而后家齐 家齐而后国治 国治而后天下平 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
