Student Leadership Framework
Our Vision - Empowered Leaders
Our Motto - Every Edgefielder a Leader
Edgefield Primary’s Student Leadership Programme (SLP) includes a broad range of experiences for students at all levels. Our EDGE approach to the SLP builds the understandings and skills of leadership through the curriculum and many varied activities of school life. In this way, students develop their individual capacity to lead, influence and serve others in a responsible manner. In line with our school vision, all leaders will be empowered to make a difference and touch the lives of whom they lead and serve. Students are also be encouraged to apply leadership skills to initiatives which strengthen the school community.
Exciting and engaging opportunities are provided for all students to acquire leadership skills. Opportunities provided are also within a real world context and encourage participation by students of varied abilities.
Edgefielders are equipped with leadership skills based on The Student Leadership Challenge (MICEE) and 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Students also undergo differentiated trainings using to be equipped with the necessary skills to fulfill their respective roles as leaders of the school.
- The Student Leadership Camp
- On-the-Job Trainings (OJT)
The Student Leadership Team provides training based on the Student Leadership Challenge which focuses on the five exemplary practices of leadership (MICEE). We believe that OJT with close mentoring is an integral part of leadership training at Edgefield Primary School. Departmental specific training for the different departmental leadership appointments are provided by the respective departments.
- HDB Heartland Ambassador Programme (Primary)
Our student leaders are provided with opportunities to reach out to the community through the participation of the HDB Heartland Ambassador Programme. In this programme, student leaders are nurtured to be champions of gracious and responsible heartland living. They are given hands-on training to equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge required to conduct the outreach. Following the training, student leaders embarked on outreach activities at the following platforms to share tips on gracious and responsible living with the residents, which includes HDB block visits, Community events and any community projects and/or initiatives proposed by the school. Through this programme, student leaders sharpened their interpersonal and communication skills through their interaction with residents and members of the public.
- Students’ Suggestion Scheme (SSS)
We believe that the voice of every Edgefielder matters. SSS is a scheme where Student leaders take the initiative to challenge the current processes in the school. Student leaders also take the lead to encourage Edgefielders and facilitate the provision of practical suggestions to improve the learning environment in Edgefield.
Student leaders are provided with various opportunities to take initiative and lead using the leadership skills they have acquired.
