A: Tier 1: Class and Functional Leaders [Offer]

At this tier, the school recognises all students’ ability to lead. Roles such as class monitors, group leaders, PE leaders and functional leaders were created to offer more leadership opportunities for students. To formalise these leadership roles, an assembly period is devoted for the formal installation of these leaders.  

Leadership development of Tier 1 leaders is illustrated in the table below:


B: Tier 2: Prefects, NE Ambassadors, CCA Leaders (Nuture)

At the Nurture tier, the school tailors programmes that provide in-depth and progressive development of the students’ abilities and talents. The department aims to develop its student leaders with the entrepreneurial spirit where they are imbued with the mindset of pushing boundaries, of wanting to innovate and finding a breakthrough.

C: Tier 3: Prefect Exco (Excel)

Prefects who exemplify strong leadership abilities are nominated by teachers to form the Prefects EXCO team where they are stretched in their leadership development. They are given more opportunities to engage in meta-cognitive activities to challenge existing ideas and initiate change at the school level.
