Character Building Society (CBS)
The Character Building Society encourages students to work as a team, and explore varied aspects of each others' personalities. It provides students with an atmosphere that invigorates them to acquire different skills: management skills, decision-making, problem-solving, etc. Who knows, you may unleash your dormant abilities and learn skills you never thought you would! Here, at the Character Building Society, we aim to form a canvas of values that foregrounds our daily lives, colours our conversations, builds our belief in a progressive future and encourages us to become good human beings.
