Instilling Self- Discipline in All Students  In AES, one key objective of the Student Management team is to develop self-disciplined Assumptionites who are able to govern their own behaviour in a sensible manner.
    Clear Structures and Guidelines 

In order to build a positive culture of care effectively, clear structures and guidelines are put in place to ensure that there is consistency in student management work.

  • Students' Briefing - Students are addressed at the start and end of every semester, as a means to reiterate expectations and rules in a timely manner.

  • School Rules and Code of Conduct -  Students are able to refer to the school rules and code of conduct conveniently on Students' Handbook online.
    Positive Culture of Care  

Student management in AES goes beyond conventional discipline work. In managing students in a culture of care, the primary focus is on helping students learn from their mistakes in a positive manner. The team recognises not just the “bad” behaviour, but seeks to also emphasise on the importance of recognising good behaviour. The following practices are in place in AES:

  • Restorative Practice (RP) – During the discipline process, RP is employed to ensure that the emphasis is on educating the student(s) and helping them understand the impact of their actions, how they can do better in the future and how to restore relationships with one another. Behavioural correction helps the students in the long run, and is in line with our objective of building self-disciplined Assumptionites.

  • Teaching of Pro-Social Skills – In our daily interactions with Assumptionites, we aim to impart pro-social skills to our students at appropriate moments to help them become Men and Women of Character and Learning

  • Catch Good Campaign – Students ‘caught’ in acts of good behaviour are recognised through the campaign, where teachers, Class Chairpersons and Peer Buddies are able to submit their observations online. The campaign aims to encourage good behaviour in Assumptionites through affirmation of their actions.

  • Class Awards System – To affirm Assumptionites for their holistic development across all aspects of school life, class awards are introduced to build the students’ sense of belonging to their class, which will in turn create the class identity. The awards include:

        • Einstein Award – Promotion Award (Termly)
        • Hercules Award – Excellence in Sports (Semester)
        • Ironman Award – Excellence in Attendance (Termly)
        • Sunrise Award – Excellence in Punctuality (Termly)
        • Bright Spots Award – Excellence in Cleanliness (Termly)

  • Holistic Education – Building student’s character goes beyond classroom teaching. Recognising the different learning styles and needs of our students, a student’s Conduct Grade is not solely dependent on his/her classroom behaviour, but also focusses on their performance in their CCA(s).
