The CSOSA thanks the school’s administration and teachers for their continuing effort at aiming at excellence in both academic and non-academic pursuits.
Through our development groups in academics;
extra-curricular activities; infrastructure improvement,
funding initiatives and public relations efforts, the CSOSA will build on this stable platform and work with teachers and parents of students to continue to enhance the teaching – learning situation at Combermere and to provide motivation for students.
We are proud also of the students who have gained scholarships through hockey, football and cricket which have allowed them to study at universities and colleges overseas.
As old scholars, we will give full support to activities such as cadets, scouts, hockey, girl guides and other school-based clubs, knowing that the true goal of Combermere School is to produce well-rounded students with caring attitudes toward our fellowmen, in keeping with our motto: Humanitate, Religione, Industria. Up and On.
