DSA Community & Youth Leadership

DIRECT SCHOOL ADMISSION (DSA) EXERCISE 2019
FOR LEARNING FOR LIFE PROGRAMME IN COMMUNITY & YOUTH LEADERSHIP

The school leverages on its Learning for Life Programme (LLP) to support its vision to develop students to be ‘Promise-Keepers, Hope-Builders and Servant-Leaders’.

All students will undergo customised LLP modules which are based on the Servant-Leadership model by Robert Greenleaf. In tandem with the school’s Character First Programme, PHS seeks to harness the potential in every student to be the best that he/she can be. For Community & Youth Leadership (CYL), the focus is on providing students with opportunities to be leaders of empathy as they lead in serving the community with a purpose.

These programmes collectively develop the mental, physical and emotional wellness to give our students a firm foundation from which they can optimise their performance in their academic pursuit, CCAs and other school activities.
