Sec 3 Service Learning
The Service Learning programme for Secondary 3 students, which was introduced in 2011, provides students with the opportunity to work with a beneficiary of their choice. While teachers act as facilitators, the programme is essentially student-centred with the planning, implementation and evaluation all done by the students. This programme allows Brooksians to develop their social and cross-cultural skills when they work with various beneficiary organisations (the young, senior citizens, the underprivileged and the environment). The planning and organisation of the Service Learning activities also helped to hone the leadership skills among the Secondary 3 students and also inculcated in them a sense of responsibility. The series of reflective activities built into this programme was designed help build their critical thinking skills as well as develop their SEL competencies.
