Student Leadership & Discipline

Department Goals Student Leadership

1) To inculcate student leaders to show responsibility and commitment in their leadership roles. 

2) To empower student leaders to have the willingness to lead and cooperate with others.

3) To build close relationship and leave a legacy among the student leaders. 

Student Leadership Framework

 Student leadership development at CHIJ OLQP seeks to develop leaders who:

·      act with compassion;

·      have moral courage; and

·      lead and serve with humility.

The school plans to use “The Leader in Me: 7 Habits of Happy Kids” leadership practice to develop in the students, leadership and 21CC. “The Leader in Me” is a comprehensive K-12 school improvement model that equips students with the essential leadership and life-readiness skills they need to thrive in the 21st Century, and enhances results for the school in the area of leadership, culture and academics.

The school’s 2-tier leadership development programme. It is designed to provide baseline leadership skills acquisition for all students, and also extends opportunities for students with high potential, to lead and serve the school through the various student groups.

At the class level, “I Can Lead” aims to provide all students an opportunity to lead and serve their peers. The school creates platforms for students to hone their leadership skills, e.g. class monitor, group leaders and subject leaders.

At the school level, “I Can Serve”, “The Leader in Me: 7 Habits of Happy Kids” extends the area of focus to ‘Create a Leadership Culture: Shared Leadership’. At this level, opportunities are provided for potential student leaders to serve in school-level leadership roles, e.g. prefects, CCA leaders and IJ Ambassadors. Student voice and collaborative leadership will lead to innovations in the school.

You’re in Charge
I am a responsible student. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking. 


You’re in Charge
I am a responsible student. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking. 


 Work First, Then Play

I am a self-disciplined student. I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. 


Everyone Can Win

I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make 
deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.


Listen Before You Talk
I practise the virtue of understanding by listening to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I also practise the virtue of confidence in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.


Together is Better
I practise the virtue of cooperation and value other people’s strengths by learning together. I get along well with others, even people who are different from me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others, we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone.

Balance Feels Best

 I practise the virtue of purposefulness. I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep. I spend time with my family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others.
