    36. (A) REVIEW: SCHOOL • Gather feedback from students and teachers after CCE lessons, and • Conduct differentiated surveys for different cohorts of students and teachers. 36

    37. (B) REVIEW: STUDENT LEADERS • Mentoring provided by Sec 4 student councillors and alumni prior to the campaign, • Conduct debrief by • student council teachers to all student councillors, and • organising committee to all student councillors. 37

    38. FEEDBACK • Above 90% of the student body and teachers agree with the statements in the feedback forms. • Examples of statements (COMPASS): • This presentation has made me aware of the importance of empathising with my juniors and peers. • The councillors communicated the objectives of the campaign clearly to the students. • I am impressed by the ideas and efforts of the student councillors. • I think this campaign is relevant to the students. 38

    39. WRITTEN FEEDBACK FROM STUDENTS The campaign helped me to be more aware about being gracious to my peers and it can make a great difference. I enjoyed the videos and the facilitation sessions conducted by the student councillors. Sec 3 student I like the group discussions as they helped me to reflect, and I also learnt how to appreciate caregivers more. Sec 2 student I learnt that our actions will have reactions, and it will affect others; also, a leader must be able to deal with problems that may arise. Sec 4 student 39

    40. WRITTEN FEEDBACK FROM CCE TEACHERS • Peers reaching to peers! Good approach for the campaign! • Campaign allows students to reflect on everyday things they normally do not give a second thought to. • A good variety of modes of learning were used (e.g., presentation, videos, group work). • Empowerment of students to lead in Character Education Lesson—this breaks the monotony of having teachers to teach CE as peers are instilling the values. 40

    41. INSIGHTS GAINED • School Support: Platform for CCE Lessons and Assembly • Group Dynamics of Organising Committee • Checkpoints- Proposal (Mid-January) - Project Overview (Early February) - Lesson Content (End-February) - Publicity Materials (End-February) - Approval by schools for above items - Ordering of Items (Banner, Posters, Pledges, Collateral Items) - Rehearsal schedule - Technical and logistics support 41

    42. LEARNING POINTS FROM STUDENT LEADERSHIP TEACHERS • Skills for facilitation and mentoring the student leaders, • Skills for planning and organising school-wide programme, and • Human resource and logistic management. 42

    43. CONCLUSION We hope that you have • come to understand the rationale to implement a student-initiated social awareness campaign to nurture altruistic student leaders, • learnt how TKSSplans, and the processes involved, to ensure the successful implementation of a school-wide programme, and • a greater awareness of the insights gained from delivering an effective school-wide programme. How could you implement or adapt the ideas in your school context? Thank you for your attention! 43
