Values in Action (VIA)
We aim to:
- develop NAPS pupil to be concerned citizens and active contributors to the society through the structured VIA programmes by levels.
The school’s VIA is in line with the school vision – An excellent school, a caring community, VIA are learning experiences that support pupils’ development as socially responsible citizens who contribute meaningfully to the community, through the learning and application of values, knowledge and skills. VIA also encourage pupils’ ownership of their learning, and how they contribute to the community. VIA activities are differentiated and developmental in nature according to the objectives that have been spelt out for the different levels. VIA provides pupils with a means for self-development by integrating meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, encourage lifelong civic engagement, and strengthen communities for the common good.
Our school has developed a 6-year VIA plan to develop our pupils’ knowledge, skills and values progressively. VIA is part of the holistic education with a range of activities planned and implemented for the pupils throughout their 6-year in Ngee Ann Primary.
It is a platform whereby:
• pupils can put the values and skills learnt into action.
• pupils and staff learn to serve the School and Community.
• bonding among pupils and staff can be formed through mass participation and cooperation.
Some highlights of our VIA activities include Use-Your-Hands campaign for all pupils, Happy Helper for Primary 1 and 2, Happy Canteen for Primary 3, Buddy Programme for Primary 4, Keep the Environment Clean for Primary 5 and Project Hope for Primary 6.
