Welcome to CLASS 6C

We are prepared to tackle the challenges that face us during our final year at FPS. Furthermore, we endeavor to set high standards in our learning, as well as being inspiring role models to all students. We believe that MANNERS, ATTITUDE and DETERMINATION are the key to a successful school experience, and we will continuously strive to implement this into our daily school life.

RESILIENCE, ENQUIRY and CO-OPERATION are just a few of the personal skills that we are all extremely proud to possess. To add to that, and most importantly, we are ALWAYS hardworking!

Success comes through personal effort...
