Values in Action (VIA)
In line with the school mission and vision of nurturing caring students, St Margaret’s Secondary School has in place a developmental Values in Action (VIA) Programme, which encompasses various facets of the community. We would develop our girls to become an Others-Centred Contributor who is willing to act and serve another’s need.
The local VIA programme was developed under the following umbrellas: Outreach to the Community, Outreach to the Elderly, Outreach to Disadvantaged Groups and Caring for the Environment.
|Secondary 1||Secondary 2||Secondary 3||Secondary 4 & 5|
|Finding out about and understanding a community need through research||Conducting user-focused VIA and sharing their observations, feelings and thoughts about it||Advocating for the community.|
Initiating and organizing VIA Project
|Students will be actively involved in learning about and exploring the needs of the community.||Students will have knowledge of issues affecting the community and design solutions to meet the needs of the community.||Students may draw attention to the community need so that others are influenced to make a difference as well.||Students will recognise that she can play her part in giving back to Singapore. They will identify an area of community need as a class and apply all that they have learnt in their VIA.|
To promote neighbourliness, Secondary 1/7 & 2/7 organised a games day in our school the residents of Ghim Moh.
The Values In Action Programme serves to develop in our students a deep sense of care and concern. We hope to see our students caring for the community beyond their years in St. Margaret’s, becoming good citizens of the nation and the world.
