2016 Key Events
1) Monitor Appointment Ceremony (for Sec 1 – 5 Class Monitors)


Zhonghua Secondary School always strives to give every student an opportunity to be a leader and our vision is for all Zhonghuarians to be dynamic and resilient leaders in their own right. With our core values – Responsibility, Integrity, Care and Excellence – and our school motto - 礼 义 廉 耻 - in mind, we aim to nurture forward-looking leaders with integrity and commitment to serve the school, the community and the nation. The Monitor Board is one avenue for our students to be trained as leaders and also to showcase their leadership potential.

The appointment ceremonies were held at cohort level in Term 1 to appoint and formally recognise Monitors. The ceremony was conducted by the Monitor Board EXCO, who also served as emcees to introduce the monitors to their respective cohorts.

2) Sports Leaders Camp (for Sec 2 – 5 Sports Leaders & Sports Athletes)
Sports Camp 2016.jpg
We had 122 pupils from the Sec 1 – 4 cohort who joined the 3D2N sports camp from 17 – 19 March. Of the 122, 35 were sports leaders while 63 were either sports leader cum sports athletes or purely sports athletes. The objective of the sports camp was to foster esprit de corps and camaraderie amongst sports leaders and sports CCA members. In addition, it was also an opportunity for Sec 4/5 to impart their experience to the Sec 1 to 3 sports leaders and athletes. Together, they lived in tents on the field, cook and ate their meals together, kayak in Lower Seletar Reservoir, had a night walk from Labrador Park to Mt Faber Hill and played various games in the school ground.

3) Student Council March Induction Camp (for Sec 1 – 5 Student Councillors)

Student Council Induction Camp was held in March to induct Sec 1 – 3 probation councillors and to promote team spirit and bonding amongst the student councillors.

4) Monitor Intermediate Training (for Sec 1 – 3 Class Monitors)

This is a milestone training for our Class Monitors to learn to work with each other within their classes and across cohorts.

6) Student Leaders’ Investiture

The Student Leaders’ Investiture is a platform to recognise all our student leaders holding various student leadership appointments across the school, and to affirm their commitment to leading the student body. The inclusion of all student leaders is in alignment to our school vision of “Scholars o Leaders” in broadening our student leadership base.
