The foundation for strong leadership qualities should be laid at a young age, and this is exactly what we do with our students.
We believe that student leadership is a central strand of learning and character building. Therefore, throughout their time here, all students are given opportunities to develop important leadership skills, both in the classroom and beyond.
By taking on leadership roles, students learn to manage real and meaningful responsibilities that will have a genuine impact on their school life, as well as develop valuable life attributes such as resilience, assertiveness, creative problem solving, teamwork, and the ability to inspire others.
Our students can begin their journey to becoming future leaders through these roles:
- Prefect (and Head Prefect)
- House Captain
- Leadership positions in clubs
- Leadership positions in societies
- Leadership positions in uniform bodies
Some of the events and initiatives our students have had a key role in bringing to life include:
APIS WeCare Campaign
A student-led campaign to raise awareness and funds to help the frontliners and victims of Covid-19. Students raised funds from their families, friends and the community, and then channeled the donation to reputable beneficiaries.
Donate Blood & Save A Life
“A drop of blood can save someone’s life” and “30 minutes is all it takes to save a life” are two of our campaigns’ taglines to raise awareness of the importance of blood donation amongst our school community. Some of the institutions we have collaborated with are Hospital UMRA, Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, and Pusat Darah Negara. This is an on-going initiative to encourage teachers and students to be part of a good cause that keeps giving.
The Haunted House
A charity programme by our Standard 4 students. This program was held to raise funds for the special children with disabilities and underprivileged children in Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah (PPKKCTM). Tickets were sold at RM5 per person. Furthermore, students held a Bake Sale to help raise more funds and to showcase their baking skills.
School visit: Charity Homes (Orphanage & OKU)
A group of 25 Form 5 prefects visited Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-anak Yatim dan OKU Mesra in Petaling Jaya. They were accompanied by their advisors and Secondary discipline teachers to give donations in kind as well as to spend time helping and entertaining the children with songs and fun games.
