Student Life

At the most basic level, every child will be fully literate and numerate. Beyond this, it is important that students master core subjects such as Mathematics and Science and acquire a rounded general knowledge of Malaysia, Asia, and the world. Students will also be encouraged to develop their knowledge and skills in other areas such as arts, music, and sports.
 Bilingual Proficiency
Every child will be, at minimum, operationally proficient in the national language, Bahasa Malaysia, and the international language of communication, English. Upon leaving school, students should be able to work in environments that encompasses these languages. The Ministry will also encourage all students to learn an additional language.
Thinking Skill
Every child will learn how to continue acquiring knowledge throughout their lives, to be able to connect different pieces of knowledge, and to create a new knowledge. Every child will master a range of important cognitive skills including critical thinking, reasoning, creative thinking, and innovation. This is an area where the system has historically fallen short, with students being less able than they should be in applying knowledge and thinking critically outside familiar academic contexts.
 Ethics and Spirituality
The education system aims to instill strong ethics and spirituality within every child to prepare them for challenges that they will inevitably face as an adult. This includes strategies to resolve conflicts peacefully, to employ sound judgement and principles during critical moments, and to have the courage to do what is right. The education system also seeks to nurture caring individuals who contribute to the betterment of the community.
Leadership Skill
In our increasingly interconnected world, being able to lead and work effectively with others is critical. The education system will help each student reach their full potential by creating formal/informal opportunities for students to work in teams and take up leadership roles. In the context of the education system, leadership encompasses four dimensions: enterpreneurship, resilience, emotional intellegence, and strong communication skills.
 National Identity
An unshakeable sense of national identity, tied to the principles of Rukun Negara, is necessary for Malaysia’s success and future. Every child will proudly indentify as a Malaysian, irrespective of ethnicity, religion or socio-economic status. Achieving this patriotism requires that every child understands the country's history and shares common aspirations for the future. Establishing a true national identity also requires a strong sense of inclusiveness, which can be achieved through the understanding and embracing of diversity.
