Student Leadership Committee
The Student Leadership Committee aims to develop every student to be a Caring Leader. The committee believes that leadership can be nurtured and all students have the potential to be developed as leaders. Every student will be equipped with the basic leadership skills to lead oneself first before leading others.
Curriculum and pedagogy / Approach
Our school’s student leadership development approach is "Lead Self and Lead Others". All students will undergo a whole-school leadership programme. This programme leverages on Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP) to educate and nurture our students to develop the following Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies:
The following shows the 4-Levels Student Leadership Development Structure:
Level 1: Class Leaders Appointments are renewed termly to provide opportunities for non-level 2 to level 4 student leaders to assume class leadership roles and apply their leadership skills.
Form teachers will update the names of the class leaders in the class list found on the following Class Leadership Appointment Chart.
Level 2: Primary 2 to Primary 6 potential student leaders are appointed to take on leadership appointments beyond class. This group of student leaders will undergo training specific to their roles and responsibilities planned by respective departments / committees.
Level 3: Prefects are students who have displayed greater leadership potential among their peers. They are provided with various platforms to hone their leadership skills through serving the school and community.
Level 4: Teachers, students and school leaders play a part in deciding the Executive Committee (EXCO) Prefects. EXCO Prefects are students who have exhibited exemplary character and leadership qualities among the prefects. They represent the voice of the student population and are involved in planning meaningful project and event.
