FULL SBB PILOT IN CLEMENTI TOWN SECONDARY SCHOOL – A UNIQUE CCA-HOUSE EXPERIENCE FOR STUDENTS
The following video illustrates our school’s implementation of Full SBB.
Our students belong to form classes based on their CCAs. Their CCA-Parents (i.e. CCA Teachers) oversee their attendance, total well-being and development, during both curriculum hours and CCA. This arrangement is intended to encourage students from the same CCA to mingle and build friendships during and after school, regardless of their academic stream, and to create more opportunities for seniors to lead their juniors.
In 2021, we will further pilot the offering of Humanities subjects at a more demanding level for Secondary 2 students.
