Beyond Classroom Week

Secondary One Beyond Classroom Week 2017

The Secondary One students started off 2017 with an orientation programme for our new YTzens which was followed quickly by the Beyond the Classroom(BC) Week. The highlights of the BC Week were sandcastle building at East Coast Park, Mathematics Trail at Changi Airport Terminal 3, Capoeira Programme, Humanities Alive and the Life Science Programme. The BC Week allowed the students to know their classmates better.


Secondary Two Beyond Classroom Week 2017

 

Beyond Classroom Week for the Secondary 2 level took on a slightly different take this year. An array of activities was lined up for the level beginning with a Heritage Trail at Labrador Park. Everyone in the level had an enjoyable and enriching time immersing themselves in the historical and geographical aspects of the park. One new activity this year was the Personal Discovery Programme where the Secondary 2 students were given the opportunity to choose one out of five different sports activity, namely, bowling, fencing, inline skating, rock climbing and tag archery. This allowed students to step out of their comfort zones. This was followed by a 2D1N camp with adrenaline-pumping activities like dragon boating, amazing race, tele-match and the signature campfire.  It was a period of self-discovery and peer bonding as the Secondary 2 YTzens learnt more about their strengths and opportunities for improvement. It was definitely a week to be remembered.


Secondary Three Beyond Classroom Week 2017

 

For our Secondary 3 YTzens, this year’s highlight for BC week is the 4-day-3-night Adventure Camp where they were given the opportunity to bond with their new classmates. In preparation for the camp, they mulled over what form their class identities and flags should take. Despite the inclement weather during the camp, the Secondary 3 students kept their spirits up and created fond memories which will be cherished for a long time to come!

Secondary Four and Five Beyond Classroom Week 2017

 

For the sec 4, this year BC week is to kickstart the preparation of our students to understand themselves and prepare themselves to be future ready YTzens. We started with the Career Talk followed by the Motivation workshop for the sec 4 and the Oversea Learning Trip for 4T8.

We had a good start for the Career Talk with the various speakers from the industries and the polytechnics followed by the career counselling provided by the polytechnics. Our students are enthusiastic and showed great interest to find out more about possible future careers.

The subsequent Motivation Workshop geared up our students with various studying skills and understand the concept of Growth Mindset to frame their learning for the year.  The rapport with the trainers were very good and our students were highly charged during the different activities even though the programme were long.  At the end of programme, our students shared their learning with our teachers and their parents.  It was a great start for the year to prepare our YTzen to be Future Ready!

For 4T8 Students, it was an eye opener to see the development of Penang and the rich culture of the Island.  They also visited a school to have a better understanding of the curriculum that their foreign counterparts are going through. Secondary One Beyond Classroom Week 2017
