Week of Experiential Learning (WELL)

The WELL Programme is a week-long experiential programme for Primary 1-6 pupils with an emphasis on self-discovery and VIA. It is a 6-year thematic programme for the MCS girl to learn about her special talents and community in the lower primary, progressing to learning about her heritage and culture at mid primary and finally the understanding that with all her strengths there is a need to be grateful for what she has and to use her strengths to contribute back to society at the upper primary. At every level it includes Learning Journeys to places of interest in Singapore, hands-on activities and VIA for pupils to understand more about self and others around them, particularly what it means to be part of a team and how to work more effectively in a team. It will culminate in Primary 6 pupils going to the Good Shepherd Kindergartens in Batam for their VIA programme, where they will bring resources contributed by the rest of the school and they will be teacher-aids to the less fortunate.
