ANATOMY OF A BULLY & A WINNER
On the week of Sept 11-15, 2017, the school had a week long campaign entitled, “The Anatomy of a Bully and a Winner”. The objective of the activity was to raise awareness among the students about the issue of bullying, its effects and corresponding consequences. Furthermore, students were encouraged towards nurturing the mindset of a “Winner” – to practice the values of compassion and gratitude as they strive towards their dreams and become “solution-makers” of our society.
During the culminating activity, Ms. Kritzia Santos, the co-Founder of Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid Foundation (http://www.kapwakapatid.com/), graced the occasion as the guest speaker. Ms. Kritzia left this inspiring message to our students: "It’s in the little things that you do that makes a difference...anyone can do something...changing the world is in your hands ...but you always have to do these with love."
SSM STUDENT COUNCIL LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP
- by Sophie C. Maitland-Smith
Last September 09, SSM Student Council officers of SY 2017-2018 participated in the SSM annual leadership workshop. However, this year was quite different as it was hosted by the core members of the Student Council, namely Maxx Chua (President), Sophie Maitland-Smith (VP for External Affairs), Erin Cochanco (VP for Internal Affairs), Bianca Laogan (Secretary) and Thea Lim (Level Rep. Coordinator).
The workshop was designed around the 11 attributes of SSM Learner Profile. Throughout the workshop, the new student leaders had to practice being inquirers, thinkers, communicators, risk-takers, reflective, caring, principled, balanced, creative, open-minded, and knowledgeable. By way of various meaningful activities, Student Council officers were not only able to get to know one another better but were also able to discover what it truly means to be an effective leader.
