The school rebuilt the basement in 2006 based on student input. The cellar doors got painted to give the impression of a dark tunnel. A jamming room with guitars and drums got added for the musically oriented Dunmanites. Outside the Design and Technology area, the halls – were remodelled. The basement was demolished as part of the PRIME project, and the C and T blocks will – get demolished soon.
Changing the way we educate and learn
The SLS is an online learning portal that provides equal access to high-quality curriculum-aligned resources in major disciplines from elementary school to pre-university, per the development of 21st Century Competencies (21CC).
The SLS also gives teachers – a set of tools to personalise and create meaningful learning experiences for students with various learning challenges. Teachers, for example, have access to tools that make pupils’ thought processes transparent. Teachers can then make educated decisions and give focused intervention to close any gaps in comprehension.
By encouraging collaborations across classes and schools – the SLS also provides a shared online platform for teachers to implement, adapt, and share new pedagogies.
The SLS is updated regularly to meet the demands of students and teachers. Curriculum-aligned resources and system tools are constantly being enhanced and developed in response to teacher and student recommendations and feedback to meet various learning needs.
DARE (Dunman All-Round Excellence) is a framework for achieving excellence.
The school campus gets – upgraded as part of the Ministry of Education’s Program for Rebuilding and Improving Existing Schools. The school continues to expand and improve. The size of the school hall will get increase, and it will be air-conditioned. The school will construct an indoor sports hall.
Following the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2005, an ex-student, Mohd Faiz Bin Mohd Rashid, approached the school with an idea: to put on a concert to raise money for the victims. At the event, celebrities and students got scheduled to perform.
DSS proposed changing its logo and tagline in 2008. Former pupils of the school were outraged by this.
We understand the feelings of Dunmanites who, like us, adore the school, but we hope you can see the need – current in the twenty-first century. Our school’s slogan and the hymn will live. The former badge, which has served Dunman so well over the years, will be kept and will always remain a part of our history. The school is establishing a Heritage Centre. You might use resources to help your alma mater get to the next level.
