Programme Highlights/Enrichment Activities
1) Pupil Leadership
In Unity, we believe that every child can be a leader. With this firm belief, all pupils are given opportunities to learn leadership skills and platforms to exemplify these skills.
To ensure we achieve our student outcome of developing Effective Communicators, Pupil Leadership training incorporates effective communication skills so that pupils see the importance of being able to articulate and communicate effectively to become competent leaders. Progressive development in the leadership training also ensures pupil leaders are equipped with the appropriate skills in order to carry out their duties.
In Unity where pupils exemplify the school values, pupils are rewarded when they are “caught” doing good deeds. FOS ambassadors and teachers are always on the lookout for acts of graciousness and appreciation.
Classes and individuals embodying the school values are presented with tokens of appreciation and their stories of good deeds shared with the school.
The main objectives of FTGP are to provide for quality interaction time between Form Teachers and Co-Form Teachers and pupils, and to equip pupils with social and emotional (SE) competencies.
Conducting once a week, FTGP lessons allows purposeful pupil-teacher interactions and the explicit teaching of SE competencies. Pupils will experience positive school experiences that support their holistic development and better prepare them for life.
Form teachers and Co-Form Teachers also use FTGP period to conduct structured reflections in the i-Character booklet where pupils are given time to do self-assessments and values reflections. Parents are also involved in the endorsement of these reflections, as parents play an integral role in the holistic development of a child.
In Unity where everyone matters, the whole school (teachers, pupils, and non-teaching staff) are involved in this movement to spread positivity during Kindness Week. In line with our vision of Creative Minds, Caring Hearts, we go beyond ourselves, and think of creative ways to show that we care for people around us. It is about going beyond and spreading positivity, making someone’s day.
The FOS ambassadors will be planning assembly talks, pledging of kindness, video montages, murals and many more to really achieve the objectives of the project; to celebrate, inspire and create awareness of kindness.
1) National Education and Social Studies
National Education in Unity, is part of our holistic education, firmly built on our school core values of Integrity, Courage, Respect and Responsibility. It aims to develop national cohesion, cultivate the instinct for survival as a nation and instil in our students, confidence in our nation’s future. It also emphasises on cultivating a sense of belonging and emotional rootedness to Singapore.
Celebrations for NE events in our school focus on engaging our students through their Head, Heart and Hands. Through the celebrations, students in Unity will know Singapore better, love and take pride in being Singaporean and look for avenues and opportunities to contribute and do their part for Singapore.
With our focus on Values-Driven Education, what better way to exemplify our values than doing our part as Singaporeans, for our community and for our country. Our Values-In-Action Programme hence has a focus on conserving our environment and emphasises the importance of keeping our environment clean. We hope to instil in our students a sense of civic-mindedness as well as build awareness among them, to spread the Green message to the community. Various activities are planned for the different levels for students to do their part for the community.
In the spirit of volunteerism, activities such as Happy Toilet, Weekly Recycling Drive and Litter Picking@Pang Sua Canal are planned for students who want to do their part for the environment and community beyond the level planned VIA programmes.
