Goals for the School Year

In fostering the growth of the new generation, we move forwards based on the insightful experiences and keeping the school philosophy in mind. In August 2020, we analyzed the past school year with the Senior Management Team of MHG and the Extended Management team to plan the next school year based on the evidence gathered and the goals set for the development plan.
