Dear parents and guardians,

We are a couple of months into the year 2023, and our teachers and students are busily engaged in teaching and learning. As parents and guardians, you have been a crucial part of our journey towards educational excellence, and for this we are immensely grateful.

At CCMS, our mission is to impart holistic education to our students, while making sure that they have a firm foundation made up of cultural values. Thus, both academic and non-academic areas of student life are given importance. On the academic front, we are doing very well. In the October/November 2022 GCE O’ level /IGCSE examinations our students made us proud, with more than 80% of them scoring 5 O’s, and a number of them scoring A* and As. Our SPE and PSR results are also commendable. Congratulations to all the teachers, students as well as their parents and guardians for making this happen!

On the non-academic front, our school is conducting a number of activities and competitions throughout the year; Malay essay writing competition, Chinese calligraphy competition, English singing competition, Maths quiz and Science quiz, to name a few. Physical education of course is not left out. We have our Sports Day in May 2023, and all our students are eagerly looking forward to it!

What makes our school unique? The uniqueness of our school is that it is a school that is supported by the community, and that it instills oriental cultural values in young people without allowing to lose their identity as the new generation of Brunei Darussalam. This distinctiveness has let us carve our own niche in the educational milieu of Brunei Darussalam and the 21st century world.

Let us work towards our goal hand in hand, empowered by our cultural richness and single-minded dedication.

Warm wishes,
Mr. Sim Jeng Siang
