27 August 2020 : What can we do?
Class Committee Workshop II What Can We Do?
was held for Secondary One to Three Class Committee Members on 27 August 2020 aimed at empowering the members to know what they can do when faced with difficult situations, and to provide an opportunity for our student leaders to sharpen their student leadership competencies through the organising and executing of a workshop.
It was helmed by 7 Secondary Three volunteers. Chua Hong Xuan (3T1) and Muhammad Harris Sufyan (3N2) led ice-breakers and a time of appreciation, Raisa Amil Oommen (3E2) and Syed Nabil (3E3) facilitated the discussion of Case Studies, and Marsya (3N2), Noelle Teo (3E4) and Sabia Afrin Ima (3E4) shared some useful Peer Support skills! The breakout rooms were also led by other Secondary Three Class Committee members.
All in all, it was no easy feat but our student volunteers rose to the occasion to organise a fun and meaningful workshop of sharing and equipping for the 120 student leaders.
Led by other Secondary Three Group Leaders, students were placed in mixed groups for ice-breakers like Scavenger Hunt, as well as for Case Study discussions.
The Class Committee Members ended the session with affirming one another, and a surprise note of appreciation and affirmation from their respective Form Teachers!
The theme for the workshop originated from a quote by James Posner, and aimed to remind the Class Committee members that regardless of their predispositions, they could still be an exemplary leader by doing their best!
Students were given a token of appreciation, with this logo (designed by Ms Ang Geok Xing) as a reminder of the workshop’s theme.
18 and 19 March 2019 : Youth Leaders Camp @ NP
This year, our Class Committee Leaders had an opportunity to attend the 2-day Youth Leaders Camp organised by Ngee Ann Polytechnic from 14 to 15 March 2018. This leadership camp provided a platform for our students to collaborate with others while developing their own leadership skills.
The activities offered allowed our Class Committee leaders to discover more about their own leadership profiles, learn how to effectively organise an event such as a VIA project, and be trained in conflict resolution. Our students enjoyed themselves as they managed to foster new friendships in and out of school during the camp.
Students were treated to a series of engaging talks put up by Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Students were given the chance to interact with student leaders from other schools.
27 August 2019: Class Committee Workshop
Students were led to reflect upon their own leadership styles using the Leadership Challenge Model.
Some of the Secondary 3 members who had gone for the Youth Leaders Camp were able to put what they had learnt about organising events into practice when they were tasked to organise a workshop for their fellow class committee members.
These members facilitated groups of Class Committee members to play bonding games, learn about the Conflict Resolution framework and practice using the framework through case studies. The workshop ended with surprise affirmation messages from their Form Teachers and it was, all in all, an enjoyable and meaningful one.
