In SoC, we recognise that leadership comes in many different forms. We also understand that we may have leaders amongst our students who have not yet been identified.

As such, SoC has a Student Award System to recognise contributions of our students.

Drawing inspiration from the International Baccalaureate system of Creativity Activity Services, this system hopes to create a similar system to incentivise leadership while providing all-rounded enrichment beyond academics.

 

Pillars

The student award system falls around 4 pillars:
