Information for Character Education Curriculum
The Character Education (CE) Formal Curriculum that comprises the CCE Lessons, School-based CCE and CCE Guidance Modules (Sexuality Education (SE), Cyber wellness (CW), Education and Career Guidance), is revised and designed based on the 6 CCE domains – self, family, school, community, nation and world, CCE Learning Outcomes, social trends and student developmental needs surfaced by the school’s Character Excellence Committee. The CE curriculum with a specific learning intent for each level has the characteristics of sequence where learning is cumulative and continuous, continuity where there is progression of values, attitudes, knowledge and skills at increased depth and complexity over the length of curriculum and transferability where students are able to put their learning into actions for internationalisation of values and skills.
Financial Assistance Scheme
The goal of the FAS Committee is to identify students with special financial circumstances that may confine their holistic development and growth in JYSS. Throughout the year, the FAS Committee works together with the staff to identify and nominate students to receive suitable scholarships and bursaries generously given by various organisations.
Reading Books Presentation
A total of 214 students received a set of English reading books to aid in their learning of the English Language. Together with teachers from the English Language department, suitable reading books were selected for students according to their language abilities and interests. In addition, all students received the motivational book, ‘The Joys and Pains of Growing Up… 17 Principles Every Youth Must Know!’ by Mr Peter Lau, a successful ex-JYian who was the world’s youngest Neuro-Semantics® Trainer in 2007 and motivational speaker. At the books presentation, each book that the students received was affixed with a special note by our Principal, Mr Seet, to encourage students in sharing of the books they had received, inculcating them the important values of sharing and paying it forward.
CDAC and Mendaki Tuition Programme
In alignment with the school’s focus on academic excellence, the school sought the help of teacher-volunteers from the CDAC and Mendaki tuition programme for our JYians in their learning of the core subjects. A total of 95 students across levels and ethnic groups benefitted from these weekly tuition sessions, allowing them additional assistance in their understanding of the concepts in their English, Mathematics and Science subjects. This was a significant step for our students who faced financial constraints but yet required additional assistance in their studies.
