Strengthening Culture of Care

Assistant Year Head:

Mrs Kumuda Vijay

    This is a 3-day programme set aside on the first 3 days of the school year for form teachers and subject teachers to bond with their students. Besides bonding, teachers get to know their students, set a positive tone for the year, inculcate school values and help their students to settle down in school.

  1. One-on-One Chat
    During one-on-one chat sessions, Form Teachers allocate time to have a chitchat session with their students to know more about them.

  1. Creating a Positive Classroom
    It is the aim to foster positive relationships among the peers to cultivate care, trust and mutual respect thought:
    1. classroom strategies for effective behaviour management and discipline;
    2. encourage and reinforce good behaviours by establishing and applying expectations and routines;
    3. develop a sense of curiosity and of inquiry for lifelong learning; and
    4. encourage learners to take responsibility for their own learning, be involved in decision-making, regard mistakes as learning opportunities, and express their views confidently.

Peer Support and Relationships (PSR)

Tier 1
The mind-set that all of us can show care to one another is cultivated. Explicit teaching of social and emotional competencies in CCE or FTGP curriculum to build resilience is done during our Home Period.

Each student is equipped with basic Peer Helping Skills such as Seeking Help and Giving Help.

Tier 2
Cross Level Buddy, programs provide students with exciting opportunities for learning and skill development. Our Primary 1 students especially enjoy the one-to-one attention they receive from their Primary 4 buddies.

Guiding Beliefs

Take Care Of Yourself
In ensuring personal safety and responsibilities, we hope our students to learn how to use various strategies taught, and implement them in a regular routine so that they can boost their well-being.

Take Care Of Others
Providing a listening ear, noticing when someone needs help, and helping our community without seeking anything in return. This also entails being kind to others in words and actions, and being useful to the community.

Take Care Of Your Surroundings
Being aware of one’s environmental footprint to see how much impact just one person has one the world’s resources, and adjust accordingly. In addition, be cognizant of the immediate environment by keeping it clean and take personal responsibility for it.
