Class Leaders’ Training on 13 January 2020
Class leaders attended a mass briefing conducted by Mdm Huda. The briefing touched on the overarching leadership model of SERVE - an acronym for Support school programmes, Engage others, Role-model the school values, Value others and Enrich the lives of others. They also learnt about the key traits of a good and effective leader through interesting videos.
Each group of class leaders, were then briefed on the specific requirements pertaining to their roles by the respective teachers in charge of these leaders, both from the Student leadership team as well as the IP departments.
The teachers who conducted the training were as follows:
|Class Leadership Role||Teacher(s) in charge|
|P3 – P4 Class Monitor||Miss Mary Chia|
|P5 – P6 Class Monitor||Miss Leong Baoru|
|English Monitor/Reading Activist||Mdm Huda & Mrs Jasmine Chan|
|Math Champion||Mdm Chen Lifen and Mrs Melissa Tan|
|Aesthetics Monitor||Mdm Sharon Lim|
|Ecopal||Mr Jaya & Mdm Sudriyanti|
|Cyber Wellness Monitor||Mdm Kaiyisah|
|PE Monitors||Mr Kenneth Seah and Miss Syahidah|
Using MTV routines, the teacher trainers, included interesting activities in their sessions, ranging from real case scenarios, teacher demonstrations, collaborative learning to role play. It was clear that while the respective class leaders were engaged by their teacher trainers, the sessions provided them with an opportunity to clarify on their key responsibilities and roles. Based on the Student Leadership framework of ISTEER (Identification, Selection, Training, Empowerment, Evaluation and Recognition), the team will embark on a new initiative to provide all class leaders with collar pins so that they can be easily identified and to give them a sense of esteem and pride in executing their respective roles.
Moving forward, the Student Leadership Team will continue looking into ways to hone the leadership skills of these group of class leaders. through a mid-point check in Term 2, to see how well they are coping with their key roles and the type of training that they would require to continue their good work.

Start It Right (SIR) - Primary 5
With students coming from different classes, “Start in Right” helped to ease the anxiety of a new school term for the P5 students. It also created a platform for Form Teachers to get to know their students in a non-teaching setting. Students went through different lesson activities aiming to equip them with the essential knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to prepare for the new school term. One of the key highlights of the programme would be the Class Interaction Games. It created the opportunity for students to overcome shyness and to forge new friendships. Through the games, students are able to demonstrate care and concern for their classmates, cheering them on while they were playing against another team and displaying the never give up attitude even when the team is down.
