A TSS Education embraces the whole of life, recognising that obtaining knowledge is one thing while the “getting of wisdom” is another. As a consequence, we offer a learning experience that is balanced and holistic, one that moves outside the classroom to complement academic achievement with the development of a range of life-skill designed to progressively reveal the full individual potential of each boys as he matures towards manhood.
In the co-curricular sphere an integrated arts and cultural program open avenues for self-expression and personal development through music, art, drama, and multimedia. Further opportunities for expanding horizons are provided through a wide variety of activities and students clubs such as Chess, Public Speaking, Karate, Young Engineers Robotics, Gifted and Talented workshops and Days of Excellence.
TSS certainly produces graduates of high scholastic calibre, but more importantly, we produce outstanding young men who exhibit confidence, responsibility, leadership, commendable ethics and emotional intelligence.
