Welcome to Yishun Secondary School’s website!
It is with great pleasure and honour that I am able to lead Yishun Secondary School (YSS) in its journey towards achieving the school’s vision of Quality Mind, Caring Heart. YSS is committed to provide a holistic education that aims to develop students as all-rounders who are equipped with the intellectual capacity as well as the sound moral grounding that would be pertinent for them to tread this volatile and uncertain world.
Our school has provided a learning environment where students’ potential can be realised and their character nurtured and strengthened. One of our key milestones in recent years is the development of the arts and aesthetics as well as the school’s student leadership programme. YSS is the first school in Singapore to have established the Applied Learning Programme in Sonic Arts. It is through programmes such as this that students are given the opportunity to explore and develop their talents. In addition, YSS has been successfully granted the Learning for Life Programme in Youth and Community Leadership. Aptly entitled ‘Leadership for Life’, the aim of this programme is to equip students with leadership skills and knowledge so that they would be empowered to be ‘agents of change’ in society and serve their community.
In our pursuit of a student-centric, values-driven education, we place great emphasis on imbuing in our students the right values in an ever-changing and dynamic world. To prepare our students for the future amidst globalisation, our school believes in inculcating a strong sense of belonging to the nation in the students by advocating active citizenry. Hence, we work closely with the community to equip our students with a sound moral compass.
In the academic arena, YSS continues to spearhead curriculum innovation to effectively engage our students. The various departments have continuously strived to provide authentic learning opportunities for our students. These opportunities further enhance the students’ learning experiences and extend their learning beyond the conventional classroom.
I hope that through this website, you would have a glimpse of the talents, capabilities, and achievements of our students; and the effort and hard work of our staff.
Together, we seek, we strive, we soar!
