SoC Student Award

Introduction

This is a new initiative to recognise non-academic achievements and 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.

Submission of your achievements will also help the school to identify students whom they may nominate for other Awards such as the SCS IT Youth Leader Award, or NUS Student Achievement Awards.
