- To nurture inspiring leaders who: lead with confidence, serve with humility and relate with empathy.
- To equip our students with an understanding of key leadership principles, and guide and train them to take on greater responsibilities.
We believe that every student has the potential to lead others. We will provide opportunities for students to experience leadership roles and equip them to lead more effectively.
Our Student Leadership Experiences
Our leaders include the Class Monitors, Peer Support Leaders, CCA Leaders, Sports Leaders and Student Councillors.
The school’s L.I.G.H.T values and the ‘Leadership Challenge Model’ (LCM) by Kouzes and Pozner anchor our Student Leadership Development programme. The 5 practices (Modelling the Way, Inspiring a Shared Vision, Challenging the Process, Enabling Others to Act, and Encouraging the Heart) are progressively introduced to students in their respective student leadership roles.
Student leaders at SJC will go through a series of leadership-related lessons, training and enrichment activities to equip them with basic theory and soft skills for their respective roles. The leaders are also provided with different opportunities to enact their leadership potential, in school-wide programmes and events.
|Tier 1: Self and Small Group Leadership
|In Self Leadership, students are introduced to leadership practices during CCE lessons to prepare them for leadership roles in the future, as a supporting member of a team who participates in various school and community events.
In Small Group Leadership, ‘Everyone has a role to play’ - students are encouraged to take on leadership roles such as subject/functional representatives in class, or as junior leaders in CCAs.
|Tier 2: Class and Junior CCA Leadership
|Class Monitors and Peer Support Leaders comprise ‘Class Leaders’ who help manage the overall environment of the class, well-being of their peers, and help organise certain activities for the class. Junior CCA leaders are lower secondary ExCo members of their CCA.
|Tier 3: School & Senior CCA Leadership
|Student Councillors and Sports Leaders organise cohort or school level activities. Senior CCA Leaders help lead their CCA programmes and training.
