Student Leadership

Student Leadership Development programme

The school’s Student Leadership Development Programme aims to provide ample opportunities for our students to realise their leadership potential through the varied activities that take place in the school, as such, developing a sense of responsibility and exercising initiative to play an active role in school and the community.


Nurturing the students to take on leadership opportunities is a whole-school approach, as indicated in the school’s strategic objectives that emphasises on providing differentiated leadership training and developing leadership potential for all levels and segments of student leaders.



The approach adopted by the school is:


  1. To develop a structured and comprehensive training programme to provide basic leadership training for all the students, with different skills emphasised at different  levels  and  provide  opportunities for hands-on experiential learning.
  2. To ensure that student leaders are monitored and guided effectively through proper training and service to school and community.
  3. To allow for the appropriate training and selection of student leaders for different needs (e.g. Student Councillors, House Leaders, CCA Leaders, Class Leaders) so as to facilitate pupils’ competence in executing their respective duties and leadership roles.


Through the opportunities provided in Bedok Green Secondary School, we aim to develop student leaders of strong character and inspiring leadership. We also adopted The Leadership Challenge model in our approach towards student leadership.

There are four segments of student leaders in the school. Students with leadership potential are deployed accordingly. The four segments of student leaders are:


  1. Class Leaders
  2. CCA Leaders
  3. House Leaders
  4. Student Councillors


All four segments of student leaders are equally important. They represent the different avenues for students to apply the leadership skills learnt and to develop their leadership skills to serve the school and the community.


  1. Class Leaders

The class committee members take on the responsibility to assist the form teachers and subject teachers in the management of the class. They promote the welfare of the class and organise activities that will build class spirit. E.g. Plan and coordinate class VIA activities and class-related events such as Teachers’ Day and OVIA.


  1. CCA Leaders

These students play a crucial role in assisting the CCA teachers in planning, organising and executing CCA programmes. They are also involved in major school activities such as the CCA Recruitment Drive, Sports Fiesta and various CCA camps.


  1. House Leaders

The House Leaders assist in the running of the Secondary 1 Orientation Programme, the annual Sports Day and Sport Fiesta held in BGSS. They run the House Committee and organize training sessions for the House members and prepare their Houses for the various sports events.


  1. Student Councillors

Other than assisting in the maintenance of school discipline through their daily duties, the Student Council also organizes and manages major school events such as the Secondary 1 Orientation Programme, Student Leaders Investiture, Youth Day celebration, Teachers’ Day celebration and many others. They also assist in the running of various major school functions such as Speech Day and Meet-the-Parents sessions.


The Student Council also initiates projects to promote the welfare of the student population such as organising community projects, learning journeys for different student segments and inter-class bonding activities to improve peer relationships among students and teacher-student relationships.
