Motivation cum Study Skills Workshop
This is an engaging workshop that aims to develop in our students the attitude of having a growth mindset. Students engage in hands-on activities to help them internalise some of the life skills to help them become better learners. At the end of the workshop, they set action plans to work towards their goals that they would like to achieve. We hope that these students will take away learning strategies that will enhance in their learning.
Sisterly Love Programme
The Sisterly Love programme in CHIJ Kellock was developed to cultivate and enhance positive peer-peer relationship among students. The programme aims to support students in learning to care for their peers through the display of positive behaviour, enabling supportive networks and in building resilient mindsets. Students are explicitly taught social and emotional competencies through FTGP/CCE/Values Education/White Space Programme to cultivate the mindset of all students to show care, concern and support for one another.
Sisterly Love @ White Space Programme
Lessons such as ‘How to make friends’ and ‘Conflict Management’ are some of the topics that are incorporated in this programme. Students pick up tips on making friends and some strategies on resolving conflicts with their friends. From here, we aim to equip as well as enhance students’ skills in relationship management.
Orientation Programme 2020
The school’s orientation programme was successfully conducted on the 2 and 3 January 2020. This year’s orientation programme included new segments such as our Sisterly Love programme, talks by Year Heads and t
he safety walk-about.
The purpose of the orientation programme was to foster greater teacher-student and student-student relationships. In addition, some of the logistical and administrative procedures such as talks on rules, class contract and safety walk-about were also scheduled to ensure that some of the standard operating procedures were well disseminated to the students. Activities such as class and level bonding games were planned for the students. Through these activities, students got to know their classmates and schoolmates better. The Sisterly Love programme made room for the students to mingle and bond with their peers of a different level. Going forward, the Student Management Department has planned more of such opportunities for the students to better support one another via the Sisterly Love programme.
The orientation programme ended on a high note with a house meeting and cheering. Students learnt their signature house cheers and rallied their team members to support all initiatives and activities for the house. We look forward to see the houses in action throughout the year.
