Through our Brother Chanel Programme, we strive to nurture effectively bilingual Marists who will be active learners and proficient users of both languages. Marists will have a deeper appreciation of and live out the Chinese culture as well as demonstrate cultural sensitivity. With a strong national identity and global perspective, Marist will become Gentlemen who will serve Singapore in the future. As a full school, we have a 10-year SAP programme that is distinctive to Maris Stella High School.
For the first 6 years in the Primary section, our area of focus will be “走近（文化）”. We aim to provide a values-driven holistic education, through an extensive authentic learning experience in Chinese Language and Cultural Acquisition.

Marists will be able to deepen their knowledge, skills and proficiencies in their interest areas pertaining to Chinese Culture and Bilingualism.
