Happy Canteen (cum Happy Wall)
Our P1 students learnt to take ownership during the Values-in-Action project ‘Happy Canteen’, focusing on how they can use their hands to help take care of the school environment. Their commitment to keep their respective designated tables clean after their meals helps to ensure that their peers from P2 and P3 can have their meals in a clean environment during recess. At the end of the year, the P1 students will conduct their reflection on how they have used their hands to “Make the day for you and me” for their peers through Arts. They will decorate on wooden tiles and write down the impact they have made in playing their part to keep the school clean. These wooden tiles will then form part of the school mural where other students can too learn about how they too can play their part in showing responsibility and care to others in keeping the school community clean.
Happy Classroom (cum Happy Home)
Every term, when the school gets ready for the Parent-Teacher-Conference (PTC) Session, our students will ‘roll up their sleeves’ and play their part in keeping the classroom spick and span. As a family (harmony), they take ownership of their classroom environment (responsibility) in order to make the day for one another (care). Their commitment in Happy Classroom is extended to their home environment, where they will pledge to assist their family in certain tasks such as making their own bed in the morning, sweeping the floor, etc. The parents will then acknowledge these deeds within the reflection form while understanding what the students have learnt from the Happy Classroom’s Values-in-Action programme. During the PTC session, the parents will then share with the teachers how the students have put values learnt into action.
The Restroom Association (Singapore) also known as RAS has initiated a public health educational programme for the primary and secondary school students to educate students about good toilet etiquette and how to be gracious and considerate users. Our P2 students first attended an assembly talk conducted by the RAS and learnt how clean toilets are the responsibility of users, not just cleaners, everyone needs to be considerate and adopt good toilet habits and how to wash their hands correctly. Thereafter, students translated their learning into action by helping to spread the message to their peers on how it’s everyone’s responsibility to keep the toilets clean. They designed posters tapping on their ICT skills to create the awareness of among their peers in choosing the right attitude and showing care for others by playing their part to keep the toilet environment clean.
