Developing Gifts to Society
Every Woodlander is a community youth leader ready to contribute to the betterment of the society.
We believe that every Woodlander has their own strengths. This can be tapped on to have significant impact upon themselves and others. Guided by the Servant Leadership Philosophy (by Robert K Greenleaf, 1970), the LLP intends to develop the spirit of active citizenry through 3 tiers:
- Tier 1
Engaging students in developing their awareness of the community and leadership knowledge, competencies or attitudes to serve the community
- Tier 2
Empowering students who show greater aptitude and/or interest to lead by actively engaging the community
- Tier 3
Inspiring students to lead and mentor in VIA & Community Youth Leadership (CYL) experiences and to explore enduring engagement in the community.
Tier 1 programmes
Tier 1 programmes caters to all students across Sec 1 to 5 with the following themes:
- Secondary 1: Contributing to School Community
- Secondary 2: Serving the Immediate Community
- Secondary 3: Beyond Boundaries
- Secondary 4: Seniors Giving Back - Mentoring and Advocacy
At Tier 1, students attend a workshop to acquire knowledge on servant leadership before engaging in community problem-solving through their Values-in-Action projects.
Tier 2 programmes
Tier 2 programmes provides training and leadership platforms for youth envoys to lead in the class VIA projects.
Tier 3 programmes
Tier 3 programmes provides opportunities for youth ambassadors to explore enduring engagement in the community through the following platforms:
- Dialogue with Prime Minister
- Youth Assembly at NWCDC
- Marsiling Constituency Annual Workplan (ACWP)
- Parliament Journey - Parliament in session
- Mentoring juniors in VIA Projects
|Secondary 1: Through applying principles of design thinking, students developed empathy and sense of appreciation towards the unsung heroes in the school community and formulate ideas to improve the school.|
Secondary 2: Students served the elderly through identifying their needs and collaborated with community partners like North West CDC & Woodlands Health Campus to run the Share-a-Pot Program for the elderly in the Marsiling community.
| Secondary 3: Our students develop these competencies and values of empathy, care and responsibility towards others through training workshops and practise them through our Values-in-Action (VIA) platforms. At Sec 3, the Glocal Citizens Programme reaches its high point with a cohort overseas service expedition to ASEAN countries of Cambodia and Vietnam where students get to plan and lead their peers on the trips. Through this programme, the school hopes to encourage our students to become future youth Community leaders and active contributors to society.|
|Secondary 4/5: Over the years of developing the understanding on their role as active citizens, the Sec 4s and 5s dedicate their time for the betterment of our Singapore future/society through advocacy projects.|
