Arts Engagement Programmes
A program in collaboration with National Arts Council which funds part of the professional artist fees. It provides an opportunity for students to be successful through their hard work and be recognized by stakeholders for their efforts.
Social Emotional Learning programmes is a psychoeducational programme to equip participants with social emotional skills through experiential learning. SEL is a process in which students acquire the knowledge, attitudes and skills in SEL competencies.
The SEL competencies as outlined in our local Ministry of Education SEL curriculum are (i) self-awareness, (ii) social awareness, (iii) self- management, (iv) relationship management and (v) responsible decision-making. LCCS incorporates relational practices in our SEL programmes to facilitate learning and to collaborate with students to participate effectively in building healthy and sustainable relationships.
This program is a partnership with class teachers to build and enhance the life skills of students through principles of Restorative practices. It seeks to inculcate relational practices in the classroom. Using its Values Education through Experiential Learning (VEXA) methodology, LCCS collaborates with students and teachers to learn how restorative and relational processes work and how to participate effectively in building relational ways to develop a healthy classroom culture that is conducive to learning.
