Our Objective

In alignment to the school's mission “where all SJCians work together for the promotion of truth, justice, freedom and love, with special reference to the needs of persons who are disadvantaged in any way”, it is our goal to imbue in our students the value of love for all and to develop sensitivity and empathy towards others.

Our Approach

The school’s VIA Experience is designed with SJC’s SEAMLESS approach where students are given opportunities to advocate and champion for a cause they have identified. Through the outreach and engagement, our students will also have opportunities to develop moral character based on strong values and a positive mindset to make a difference for others.

Our Programme

SJCians’ VIA experience encompasses opportunities to hear from different organisations, participate in various activities to learn more about the community, environment and evolving issues around the world. The VIA Programme seeks to provide students a voice and ownership in the outreach they would like to undertake and advocate. They are given opportunities to lead school-initiated or student-initiated projects which are mentored by their teachers.

Reflections are also key to the experience as the school seeks to develop 21st century competencies, socio-emotional competencies and nurture the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Care, Resilience and Harmony.

The school’s Learning for Life Programme (LLP) extends the VIA experience for all our students where they have opportunity to develop empathy and critical thinking through Community Problem Solving.
