Character Education & Student Wellness

Our school believes that Character Education and Student Wellness is an important area as they have the aims of instilling and nurturing the positive moral values, mindset and attitudes that will develop and shape the students into caring, ethical and responsible individuals. All school community members are responsible for this matter as we believe character education takes a community effort.

· To nurture and discipline with care to build character and leadership so that our students are ready to take on academic, social as well as emotional challenges in school and beyond.

· To provide a positive and caring school environment in which students feel a sense of belonging and responsibility for each other within the class and the school as well as the community at large.

These aims tie in with the school’s mission and values in developing students with character, leadership and integrity who:
– value others and self;
– are loyal to their school and respect their nation;
– take joy in serving others.

SBGG is a firm believer of holistic education, where learning happens inside and outside of the classroom, so that students of SBGG have a sound mind and a healthy body. In order to do that, SBGG has devised ample ways to instill good values to students, such as:

  • Learning about Character Development every week in the classroom, which consists of intrapersonal and interpersonal development, along with our core values CHIRPS (Creativity, Humility, Integrity, Resourcefulness, Perseverance and Sensitivity to others)
  • Having an annual Kindness & Health Month, which is usually done in February, with various themes to encourage students to show small acts of kindness to anyone in the community and to take care of themselves by having a healthy lifestyle within the month, i.e. watching what they eat by finding a healthier option, having group exercises and creating sleep journal to make sure they have enough sleep.
  • Yearly fund raising activities where students come up with their own plan to raise funds to give to those in need, usually by selling food and drinks in the school vicinity.
  • Regular visits to orphanages, old folks’ homes, schools for children with disabilities, and the likes.
  • Any teachable moment done in and out of the classroom
