Introduction

In line with the vision “Active Minds, Gracious Hearts”, one of West Grove’s strategic goals is to develop pupils to be morally upright and actively contribute to the community. Education is never complete if it does not develop a pupil’s character along with his mental faculties and physical ability. Character development is integral to education and is fundamental to the holistic development of our pupils. In West Grove, besides providing explicit teaching of our six school values through our comprehensive life skills lessons, schools values, leadership and social-emotional competencies are also integrated and infused through all aspects of education in an environment that is caring and open.

In West Grove, no pupil is left behind and we look into the welfare of our pupils. Pupil well-being committee works with pupils who have financial, social and/or emotional difficulty. The committee will assess his needs and provides him with the necessary support so that he has an ease of mind to learn well in school.

The pupil well-being committee also aims to raise awareness of the different types of special needs in pupils and equip teachers with strategies to handle special needs pupils in their classrooms. We believe that this, in turn, will facilitate a smooth transition for the special needs pupils who are moving from one level to another level. We work closely with the parents of the special needs pupils so that they are able to cope with the fast-paced mainstream school environment or move on to a special school which best meets their interests.
