The objectives of the Serangoon Student Leadership Development Plan (SSLeaD) are:

  • To maintain a positive school tone through enhanced student leadership.
  • To develop student leaders in selected leadership competencies as part of their holistic development.

The school has adapted from the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey for our leadership model. We train our students to:

Habit 1: Be proactive.
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw

The Student Leadership Programme allows our StaRs to develop and hone their leadership skills and qualities at the various tiers of leadership.
