National Day Observance Ceremony
Community Club for our National Day Observance Ceremony 2019.

- To provide an opportunity for our students to work together as a class towards fulfilling a common goal.
- To provide an opportunity for students to interact with children from a different culture so as to deepen students' global awareness and cross-cultural skills and sensitivity.
- To inculcate the school R2IGHT values in students by providing a meaningful platform.
We partnered with the nursing home near our school to conduct various activities such as music-making, exercises, sensory boards and life story documenting for the residents of the home weekly. Before embarking on planning the activities, our students learnt more about the needs of the elderly from a sharing conducted by the staff of the home. As we would like to respect the privacy of the residents, no photographs will be featured here.
Together with our partner, Lions Club, three classes jointly conducted a beach cleaning. After the cleanup, the students gathered their observations and conducted an advocacy campaign to create awareness to the juniors and peers. The topics covered range from litter people throw, the negative impacts caused by these litter and how we can play our part via platforms such as BeAConz talk, posters and sharing via social media platforms. The other classes also embarked on environmental advocacy projects. Environmental Sustainability Education School Wide Sustainability Awareness & Education

Sec 2 R2IGHT Camp (VIA/TIE Trip)
This year, Juying Secondary redirected its focus on our Sec 2 VIA/TIE trips to increase the level of student ownership and involvement in the VIA/TIE process. Thi also as to better achieve the objectives of the VIA/TIE trips: During the June/October holidays, our Secondary Twos and Threes were involved in the Trips for International Experience (TIE) in various countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.The objectives of the trip are to develop our students in the 21st Century Competencies of Global Awareness and Cross-Cultural skills. Through their experience in serving the needs of children in orphanages and schools and also tackling environmental issues such as water pollution, our students have definitely grown in their self-confidence and self-directedness as well as developed into more concerned global citizens and active contributors to handle social issues around them.
- Develop in our students the 21st Century Competencies of global awareness and cross-cultural skills and sensitivities;
- Expose students to Asia, especially South East Asia, and sensitise them to Singapore’s place in the world; and
- Deepen students’ commitment and rootedness to Singapore.
Identify a social issue that they want to learn more about.
- Conduct online research on how that issue is being tackled in Singapore.
- Select a country that has done well in tackling that issue to visit and learn from.
- Craft their desired learning outcomes from their VIA/TIE trip.
- Work with their form teachers to plan the trip itinerary and select the trip vendor.

Following their VIA/TIE trip, the Sec 3 classes all shared with the school what they had experienced and learnt during their trip. Feedback from the students, the teachers, and even the staff of the places visited by the students during their VIA/TIE trips, was very positive. Students shared that they had benefited from the programme tremendously.
follow-up to the VIA/TIE trip and to give the students an opportunity to
further develop themselves and apply what they have learnt, the Sec 3 classes
will be planning their own VIA activity to tackle the social issue they had
chosen, but in Singapore’s context.
Through this programme, our students have definitely grown in their self-confidence and self-directedness, as well as developed into more concerned global citizens and active contributors to tackling social issues around them.
