THE MARCELLIN WAY
The Student Development Team plans and implements our 10-year Marcellin Way programme to achieve our Marist student outcomes. The Marcellin Way, anchored on Marist values and the Marist style of education, are experiences that seek to build the character of Marists. These values and qualities were expressed in the life and experiences of Saint Marcellin Champagnat who started the Marist Brothers in 1817. The effort and perseverance of our school’s founder Brother Chanel Soon and our early pioneers are immortalised in our school motto 勤 勉 忠 勇. Our Marist values and school motto continue to be relevant in an ever-changing and dynamic world. They define our philosophy, beliefs and approach to education. We teach our students with and about compassion and love, the cornerstone of our Catholic faith. Indeed, the Marcellin Way programme promotes in our students a life of Faith, Vision and Service to others.
There are two main programmes, namely Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) and Faith Formation. Through these two programmes, the authentic learning experiences aim to inculcate values and build competencies that will mould Marists to be good individuals, with the tenacity and adaptability to navigate the unknown future, and who are of service within school and the wider community.
To achieve these goals, the following programmes are offered:
The CCE curriculum consists both weekly class-based CCE lessons, as well as key Student Development Experiences, which provide students with rich and authentic opportunities for CCE beyond the classroom.
These Student Development experiences include the following:
As a Catholic school, we are guided by the Marist values and ethos. The Faith Formation experiences aim to develop Marists to be gentlemen with a strong sense of spirituality and belief, and to emulate the values exemplified by Mother Mary.
