The SPRINGER LORETTO JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL Value Based Education Model represents the School's commitment to optimise teaching and learning, and facilitate children's holistic development and well-being. Through a curriculum that is stimulating and creative, and an environment that is safe and child-centred, we enable the learner to explore multiple dimensions of excellence, encompassing intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. There is equal emphasis on academic rigour and engagements beyond the classroom through a wide spectrum of opportunities.
The School's guiding statements underpin the facts that cherishing one's own culture and respecting that of others, as well as values-based learning, are pivotal to holistic education. The educational programmes at the School focus on inculcating in the learner five key attributes: creativity and innovation, collaboration, leadership, global citizenship and life-long learning.
All the elements in our curriculum model converge to bring out the best in every child and enable them to be on the path of continuous development and progress.
We recognise the importance of meeting the unique learning needs of every child by providing a safe, supportive and respectful environment. Through individualised attention that appreciates children's learning styles and differing abilities, by helping them cope with emotional challenges and by providing them guidance to select higher education pathways, we work for their well-being, within the school and beyond.
Our student care team, comprising nine qualified professionals, work with class teachers and parents to provide appropriate support, enabling students to excel in their studies. Wherever required, the student care team consults with outside therapists and educational psychologists in evaluating or addressing student needs. Students are supported so they are able to cope with academic demands and challenges, and manage them in constructive and creative ways.
At SPRINGER LORETTO JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL we place emphasis on helping students develop essential life skills so they are better prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences throughout their life. All students engage in an active, planned life skills programme, PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education), which is delivered by Class Teachers.
‘Family Connection', a comprehensive exploration tool, allows students and parents to be involved in the planning and advising process, research paths, create plans for the future, discover enrichment possibilities and stay well-informed.
A holistic approach to teaching and learning is important for the physical, emotional, intellectual creative, spiritual and social well-being of children, and to develop them as well-rounded individuals. At SPRINGER LORETTO JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, we lay emphasis on experiential and exploratory methods of learning, well beyond the classroom, as well as espouse the appreciation and practice of our school's values and attributes.
We constantly ensure that holistic approaches to teaching and learning are achieved in multiple ways – academic growth, sports and co-curricular activities, and the regular upgrading of student centric activities and services.
In the classroom, students present their work by way of presentations, small plays and debates. Community service encourages children to understand the challenges faced by the less-privileged and sensitizes them to the importance of being compassionate.
At SPRINGER LORETTO JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL (SLJHS), we provide a learning environment that inspires and motivates children and encourages them to explore limitless possibilities in their quest for knowledge. Since inception, our overarching goal has been to make SLJHS a happy school, where teaching is a pleasure and learning is a joy; where learning and excelling is a passion, and culture and values have a pre-eminent place.
