Whole Person Development

With Catholic core values as the bedrock, a whole school approach has been adopted for Whole Person Development (WPD) which aims at nurturing our girls to be loving, caring and upright individuals who practise the Four Cardinal Virtues of Prudence, Justice, Temperance and Fortitude in their everyday life.

Much of the emphasis has been on values education, experiential learning and habit formation. This theme-based programme is conducted as a spiral curriculum in which tailor-made activities, talks and workshops are organized. Both the themes and activities are updated annually to meet the needs of students and to match the school major concerns of the year.

General Framework of Themes

The core themes are

  1. Personal Growth and Interpersonal Relationships
  2. Religious, Moral and Civic Education
  3. Career and Life Planning
  4. Community Service
  5. Student Leadership
  6. Health and Environmental Education
  7. Gifted Education

Framework E

To implement these programmes, regular lessons have been allocated on Tuesdays (WPD time), alternate Wednesday Class Teacher Periods and Friday Religious, Moral and Civic Education time slots. There are also programmes and activities carried out outside the classroom. All these are the joint effort requiring collaboration with all Student Development Committees namely:

  1. Career and Life Planning
  2. Community Service
  3. Health and Environmental Education
  4. Gifted Education
  5. Religious, Moral and Civic Education
  6. Student Activities and Leadership Training
  7. Student Guidance

Class Teachers
Without a doubt, class teachers play a significant role as facilitators in the whole person development of students. The school has adopted twin class teachers for years so as to maximize the time and care given to individual students and the class as a whole. Thus each school day after the morning assembly is allocated as the Class Teacher Period. It is not only for conducting class affairs, but most important of all, for building a positive classroom culture.
