Our teaching and learning approach


NARRATIVE APPROACH – relate a story, use video, newspaper cuttings, scenarios, etc – clarify their feelings, reflect on how it can be applied to daily life. 

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING APPROACH - observe, reflect and apply in a real world situation; scenarios to help them internalise the values. 

CONSIDERATION APPROACH – different perspectives where students are put in the shoes of others

COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT APPROACH – moral reasoning to help students examine the motives behind the actions and arrive at a decision for the common good.

MODIFIED VALUES CLARIFICATION APPROACH – Clarify students beliefs and values, examine personal feelings, consider the impact of their actions on others to arrive at responsible decisions.

CCE Learning Outcomes (LO):

LO1: Develop self-awareness and self-management skills to achieve personal     well-being and effectiveness

Learning to Live Well Programme

This is a school-based values education programme which was first conceptualised in 2010 and introduced to the P3 and P4 levels. The programme was extended to all levels in 2012. All pupils undergo the Living Well programme, taught through weekly lessons, which focuses on helping pupils understand how to live a meaningful life. Through a range of activities, e.g. discussions, reflections, role-play, pupils explore the meaning of the Lasallian values, social & emotional skills, and their role as a member of communities. Guidance modules and relevant topics e.g. Assertiveness Prog for Managing Bully, Peer Relationships, Sexuality Education, Cyberwellness and Education and Career Guidance, are built in where relevant. It also covers the following:

1. FTGP (Form Teacher Guidance Period) and Termly Special Bonding Time (Building Bonds Within the Classroom)

2. Life skills and SEL (Social-Emotional Learning)

3. Values in Action (VIA) Programme - Connecting the Head, Heart and Hands – an opportunity for our Anthonians to observe, think and feel how they could be a blessing to the community and do the necessary to make the world around them a better place 

4. Singapore Kindness Programme & CCE Lessons – explicit teaching of R3ICH values education in MTL  

5. School-based Values-based Programmes i.e. faith-based programmes, Anger Management, NE Core Events, Learning Journeys, Anthonian Matters, CCAs, Camps, Anthonian Leadership Programme, Level SIP/PW, Assembly Talks/Monthly Library Activities on Values and EL/MTL using stories to develop character

Pupils who demonstrate behaviours which embody our Lasallian values of Faith, Service and Community and attain an ‘Excellent’ conduct grade, receive a CARE Quest Badge. Anthonians nominated by their peers and have attained a ‘Very Good’ conduct grade could also be awarded.  

‘I CAN coz I CARE!’ Values in Action (VIA) Programme

It aims to inculcate in pupils the Lasallian values of Faith, Service and Community through service to the home, school and the wider community.  The focus of VIA in St Anthony’s Primary is centred on helping the ‘the last, the lost and the least’ and activities in creating a sustainable environment.

Anthonian Matters!

Launched in 2010, the school suggestion scheme aims to provide pupils with opportunities to value add to the school community; to involve them in decision making processes and develop in them a sense of pride, belonging and ownership to school.

Anthonians make suggestions via the forms available in the classrooms or online platform.

CARE Champs, mainly the Anthonian Leaders, are appointed as caretakers of the Anthonian Matters.

The suggestions are collated termly and evaluated based on the school vision and values, and then shared with the staff and Anthonians for further action. 

Project Work (SIP 3.0 Project ACE) 

The purpose is to nurture in pupils the values on citizenship and interest in & skills to conduct inquiries. The key competence areas are the ability to apply knowledge, to communicate effectively, to collaborate with others, to problem solve and to learn independently.

The project leverages the National Education learning and heritage trails to provide meaningful contexts for pupils to extend and reflect on lessons learnt from key moments in Singapore’s history, and put their values into action as concerned citizens and active contributors.

Each level undertakes a project related to their respective theme, eg

Primary 1:   Peranakan Culture 

Primary 2:   National Identity Box 

Primary 3:   EE Project Trash to Treasure

Primary 4:   Singapore/School Heritage

Primary 5:   Innovation/Invention 

Primary 6:   Cultural Ambassador of UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Anthonian Leadership Programme

Leadership competencies are developed in Prefects, CCA Leaders and Class Committees through their participation in training programmes eg Camp LaSalle and the provision of opportunities to demonstrate acquired skills, eg organizing concerts and camps.

Grooming checks are conducted termly on pupils’ attire and grooming.  Parents may refer to the Anthonian Diary for a description of the school rules and guidelines for school attire and grooming.

Counselling Support

The counselling team comprising Miss Shakthi Sivasubramaniam and part-time counsellor Mr Jayachandran supports the emotional needs of Anthonians. Parents may refer their charges, through their form teachers, for counselling support.  Depending on the needs of the pupils, the school may work closely with community resources like family service centres and other government agencies for intervention and support.

Booster and Intervention Programmes

Through the annual Family and Pupil Profiling, pupils are identified and supported through booster programmes and group therapy sessions.  These workshops aim to help pupils develop their social emotional skills as well as qualities like motivation and self-esteem.
