Unity Secondary School
Guide To Know More About The Unity Secondary School
Unity Secondary School opened in January 2000 with 17 faculty members and 364 students. Mr N Satianathan, the school’s first Principal, was named Principal-designate in July 1999. The school’s official opening ceremony took place on November 15, 2001. Mr Yeo Cheow Tong, then Minister for Communications and Information Technology and Member of Parliament for Hong Kah GRC, presided at the opening ceremony. For a complete student-centric, values-driven education, the Unity Secondary School designed and launched two independent programs connected to the School Motto in 2015. As spelt out in the student outcomes of the MOE 21st Century Competencies Framework, these unique programs strive to grow our students into Confident Persons, Self-Directed Learners, Concerned Citizens, and Active Contributors.
Character and Leadership Learning:
The school develops all of its students’ leadership potential by contextualizing character and citizenship education as leadership development. Leadership contextualization for character development gets used to help students understand values and put them into action in a more relevant and contextual way. Unity Secondary School takes a whole-school approach to character and leadership development for our children. The Leadership Learning Framework, which supports the operationalization of Strategic Thrust 3 – Every Student a Leader, captures the school’s effort in the leadership learning field.
Applied Learning Programme:
The ALP program provides our students with biotechnology skills that enable them to relate to real-world food sustainability issues, particularly in Singapore. Microscopy, Microbiology, Plant Tissue Culture, Food Waste Composting, and Hydroponics are the subjects covered by our students. The children appreciate the thrilling sessions, donning lab coats, and feeling like young scientists because the span of information goes well above their typical scientific courses, and there is considerable hands-on experience in learning.
Students get advanced to Secondary One in one of three courses based on the results of the Primary School Leaving Examination: Normal Academic, Normal Technical, and Express Academic. After their fourth year, Express Course students take the GCE ‘O’ Level exam. At the end of the fourth year, students in the N(A) and N(T) Courses take the GCE ‘N’ Level Examination. Those who perform well in the N(A) course will be eligible for Sec 5N, after which they will sit the GCE ‘O’ Level Exam. Students can transfer from one subject to another based on their grades and the school’s evaluation.
School Philosophy, Culture, and Ethos:
The school prioritizes the needs of its students in essential decision-making processes, believing each student is unique, has potential, and may serve as an example to others. Both academic and character development are vital to the institution. All Unity instructors are devoted to helping students develop their development mentality, realize their full potential, and eventually contribute to society via numerous programs based on the school values of respect, compassion, persistence, dedication, and integrity. To do this, the Unity Secondary School believes in fostering personal, social, and intellectual growth by providing a joyful, caring, and supportive environment for students at all levels.
