FORM TEACHER GUIDANCE PERIOD (FTGP)

With the PERI initiatives coming ahead, MOE has established new structures to better support schools to implement the recommendations outlined by the PERI committee. One of the new structures that will be in place is the Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP). FTGP serves as an additional platform for Form Teachers and Co-form teachers to build better rapport with the students so as to enable them to identify the needs of the students and provide better support for them.

INTERACTION TIME (i-TIME)

     This programme gives both teachers and students the platform to meet up on a personal basis individually. Through this interaction, teachers are able to meet the individual students at least once a semester to get to know them better. This interaction also serves as a tool to motivate the students not only excel in academics but also serves to help further enhance the character development of the child. 

      The objectives of the programme are as follows:

        -To build a positive personal relationship with our students

        -To generate mutual respect and trust.

        -To create a conducive and happier teaching and learning environment.

        -To reach out to students letting them know that we care

education and career guidance (ECG)

Education and Career Guidance (ECG) is about equipping students with the necessary knowledge, skills and values to make informed decisions at each key education stage for successful transition from school to further education or work, and hence to manage their career pathways and lifelong learning throughout their lives. Through ECG, social emotional competencies and qualities of proactivity, adaptability and resilience are developed to prepare students for the 21st Century.


Primary School Emphasis: Awareness

Goal: 

To introduce students to the wide array of occupations, including new jobs created in this ever-changing world-of-work. 

Students will develop an awareness on their:·       

    -interests, abilities and career aspirations.
    -relation of self to others and work.
    -initial preferences in career roles assumed in play.

MOE SEXUALITY EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS

Sexuality Education (SEd) in schools is about enabling students to understand the physiological, social and emotional changes they experience as they mature, develop healthy and rewarding relationships including those with members of the opposite sex, and make wise, informed and responsible decisions on sexuality matters. SEd is premised on the importance of the family as the basic unit of society. This means encouraging healthy, heterosexual marriages and stable nuclear family units with extended family support. The teaching and learning of SEd is based on respect for the values and beliefs of the different ethnic and religious communities in Singapore on sexuality issues.
