Inauguration of Student Leaders (January 2018)

Every January, our student leaders from the Student Union, the Prefect Team, the Christian Fellowship, the Four Houses, the Scouts, different sports teams, music teams and other school teams and organizations gather and take their oath in front of all schoolmates in the morning assembly. In their oath, they promise that they will spend their greatest effort to serve their schoolmates so as to help them enrich their learning experience in school.

Leadership Development Programme (LDP) (July 2018)

It is our belief that every one of us is unique in God’s eyes. It is our mission to develop our students into future leaders of the 21st century. While there are some commonly recognized core qualities shared by effective leaders, leadership training is not a mere acquisition of certain knowledge and standardized skills. Knowing oneself is the first and most important step, though we are often too busy and the need for self-reflection is overlooked. The life-long journey of self-exploration does not only help us discover our self-worth, but also provides the driving force to build up self-motivation. It is hoped that our students can be sensitive to the need around them, so that they are intrinsically motivated to take the lead to bring about positive changes in our school, our community, our society and our world.

 

In recent years, there has been a breakthrough in the Leadership Development Programme in our school as current student leaders are taking the initiative in the design, planning and implementation of the programme for their junior schoolmates. Through team-building games and exploration activities in and out of the campus, they are able to experience the cultivation of leadership attitudes and qualities.

Training for Class Leaders (September 2018)

Members of the Class Association are key persons in their class. The training is arranged in the beginning of every school year for Form 1 class leaders. The workshop helps student leaders in the class recognize the importance of their role and it also aims at encouraging them to bring about positive influence to classmates and build a better class together.

Talents Spot

The Talents Spot is a lunch time event held once or twice every term and it provides a platform for Carmelians to showcase their talents to their schoolmates. Band shows, rope skipping and story-telling are some performances that our schoolmates will not forget.
