Homeroom Programme 2018
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is part of our school’s Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) programme. It refers to pupils' acquisition of skills to recognise and manage emotions, develop care and concern for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, and handle challenging situations effectively.Starting from this year, our school further enhanced SEL by introducing our Homeroom programme which is carried out during the first period every day. Pupils acquire skills, knowledge and dispositions to manage themselves and relationships with others effectively. They also learn to make responsible decisions essential for personal and social well-being through the activities carried out during the Homeroom period. Additionally, the Homeroom programme allows for Form and Co-Form teachers to interact with their pupils daily, thus giving them more time and opportunities to build positive teacher-student relationships with the pupils. Lessons which are targeted at the different levels include Mind Your Manners, Mind Your Mind and Values Education. The Mind Your Manners lessons teach pupils appropriate behaviours through discussions of different scenarios. In Mind Your Mind lessons, pupils are taught skills to manage stress and anger, inclusive of relaxation exercises they can use when the need arises, and last but not least, the Values Education lessons are aimed at inculcating in our pupils the school values of Care, Respect, Responsibility, Integrity and Perseverance. To provide pupils with a variety of activities during the Homeroom period, community singing, mass exercise, current affairs and art appreciation are carried out every Friday, ending the week in a more lighthearted tone. It is our hope that as our pupils learn to be socially and emotionally competent, they will be motivated to learn and achieve success in their lives.

Johor Bahru – here we come!
“Yay! We are going to Johor Bahru during the March school holidays!” Sam told his parents excitedly when he got home from school. “Teacher told us that we will be visiting a Malay cultural village and an organic farm. Please allow me to participate in this learning journey! I will be able to spend the day with my friends and learn to take of myself, my belongings and my friends. Can I go, Mum? Please?”
On the morning of 13 March, Sam and pupils from 2 other classes gathered in the school hall. They were eager to start on their day-trip to Johor Bahru. Sam found out from his best friend that the other 3 P4 classes would be going on the trip to Johor Bahru on 14 March, the next day.
At 7 a.m., the pupils were all set to depart for their learning journey, accompanied by their Form, Teachers Co-Form Teachers and a few other teachers. From the bright smiles seen on the pupils’ and teachers’ faces during and after the trip, and the positive feedback given by all, we can tell that the learning journey was indeed a SUCCESS!
