sKy Leaders Programme
The sKy leaders programme is a school-based talent development programme to stretch the potential of high-achieving students by providing them with opportunities to extend their academic and leadership abilities. The acronym, sKy, stands for Values, Knowledge and Competency, corresponding respectively to the focus of the programmes for our Secondary One, Two and Three sKy Leaders respectively.
The school leverages the MUN Conference, an excellent platform to hone the sKy Leaders’ 21st-century competencies, to develop student agency in students where they can be conference organisers. The sKy leaders take on various roles in organising the conference according to their strengths, for instance, facilitating discussions, designing publicity materials, etc.
National Youth Environment Conference (NYEC) 2023
NYEC is a MUN Conference with an environmental focus as sustainable environment education (SEED) is one of the niches of the school.
In collaboration with Service Learning Club, Sky Leaders organised the 3rd NYEC, a virtual conference held on 16 and 17 March, and involved more than 200 students and teachers. This year,Dr Toh Tai Chong from NUS officiated the opening ceremony.
NYEC has developed “Confident Learners” by allowing both participants and the organising team to step out of their comfort zones, acquire new skills and gain insights from experts. It has also nurtured “Compassionate Leaders” by fostering a greater sense of eco stewardship
amongst everyone involved.
