Uniformed Groups

Core Focus

The Uniformed Groups (UG) are recognised as a strong character building platform, as it helps to instil in students commitment and loyalty to the nation, develop ruggedness of body and mind as well as cultivate leadership qualities and discipline and esprit de corps. It is important that a significant proportion of our students continue to benefit from the UG.

Our Vision

UG, The Preferred Choice

Our Mission

We build and enhance the capacity of schools and stakeholders to enrich students’ experience through the Uniformed Groups.
