Sec 3 StaRs Programme
The ‘I’ in Industry
Featuring three exciting days centered around developing our students holistically, our Serangoon Stars got the opportunity to immerse themselves in various Elective Modules, which allowed them to experience various industries through the guidance of industry players themselves.
Students got the opportunity to choose from a wide range of industries, such as Animation, Culinary and Dessert Making, Floral Arrangement, Hospitality, Nursing, Rail Transport, and Sports and Wellness. They managed to practise some useful life skills such as personal grooming, nursing, how to make their own personal terrariums and many more.
“I really enjoyed the experience because the hands-on activities were very fun. I’ve always wanted to be a chef and learning these skills has helped me know more about my future career,” Peh Zhen Jie, a student from 3I4 mentioned.
Each course concluded with a
specially-selected learning journey, where industry partners opened their doors
to allow students to see how the skills they had learnt through the sessions in
school could be applied in authentic settings.
The Secondary 3 StaRs were also able to display the fruits of their labour through a showcase that was held during the Parent Engagement Session on 15 March 2019. The rest of the school, as well as parents, had the opportunity to see their creations and an exhibition of their experiences.
With raving responses from all students, the school looks forward to organising such programmes for our students again next year!
