Health Promotion Board Student Health Ambassador Programme For Secondary Schools: Temasek Secondary School
After a successful first run at Yuhua Primary School for the primary school students, the Student Health Ambassador Programme began its inaugural run for secondary schools. Welcome to Temasek Secondary School, the hosting school for the two day workshop. A collaboration of Health Promotion Board and Lionel Lim Lifestyle Works, we welcomed an energetic group of slightly over 40 students from East Spring Secondary School, Pei Hwa Secondary School, Yishun Town Secondary School and Temasek Secondary School.
It may be the one week school break but there’s no stopping the enthusiasm of the students who turned up in full force. Young, energetic and all raring to go, they soon electrified the atmosphere in the classroom. Gone was the rhetorical one-way theory style of teaching. Instead, we played more games than we could ever recall. And through the games and activities, it was literally a theatre of live youthful energy with their cheers and claps for their schoolmates.
Many students in the group had an inkling of the projects they aspired to implement back in their respective schools. Whether it was an anti-smoking exhibition in the school canteen or leading the entire school to do the latest harlem shake dance craze at the school’s sport day, the ideas came fast and furious.
