Student Leadership

The Pupil Leadership programme in Yangzheng Primary School aims to empower our Yangzhengnites by developing them holistically to their fullest potential. The Pupil Leadership Programme enables our pupils to realise their potential through building the necessary skills, confidence, motivation and effective relationships to develop competent leaders. The broadening of the pupil leaders’ base was adopted with the aim of providing leadership opportunities for a greater number of pupils and in nurturing the leadership potential of these pupil leaders. We strongly believe that this opportunity and training will cater to the strengths, interests and needs of the pupils, the school and the larger community.  The training given will equip our Pupil Leaders with specific skills and competencies to carry out their responsibilities well to the best of their abilities.
