The patron saint of our school, St Edmund Campion, was martyred on 1st December, 1581 at the promising age of 41. We, the Campion family are inspired by his invincible courage, unwavering faith and ardent conviction for truth and justice. These are the common ideals that bind us in our endeavour to strive for excellence and for the greater glory of God. On the 1st December, 2020, the Council of Management, Principal, Staff, students and parents came together for a virtual prayer service to not only honour our patron but also to renew our commitment of our duties and responsibilities to the will of God.
