Highlights of some key programmes:
Leaders of leaders - Prefects' Investiture
Yishun Primary School’s prefects’ programme aims to nurture pupils and develop them into caring leaders with strong leadership traits. With the use of scenario-based training and Student Learning Space lessons, pupils are provided with the opportunity to experience handling different situations while collaborating with fellow prefects to learn from each other. Prefects will also be trained to support various school activities such as P1 Orientation, flag raising ceremony and recess discipline.

Recess Structured Play
Studies also have shown that the free-play that comes during recess is crucial to a child’s cognitive, social and emotional development. Since March 2019, pupils in Yishun Primary School began to enjoy a different experience during recess in the form of structured play. Various play equipment was provided for the pupils to use at the parade squares which has been partitioned into zones. Our pupils are provided with a myriad of items ranging from balls to hula hoops while adopting the “Think Safe, Play Safe, Stay Safe” mindset to experience free-play in a responsible, caring and SAFE manner.
