FRIEND OF SINGA 2020
It’s 2020 and the annual Friend of Singa (FOS) is in its 30th Year!
We would like to invite you to join us for another special year of championing kindness in your school community.
About Friend of Singa
The annual FOS programme started in 1990 to recognize students who had gone the extra mile to show kindness. Participating teams will have to complete a kindness project within their school communities over a period of five months.
FOS is no longer awarded based on merit. Instead, schools will be recognized for sustained participation in FOS. This move is deliberate to complement MOE’s values-in-action (VIA) framework and the schools’ efforts in building character development amongst its students.
The theme for FOS 2020 is “Kindness means ___________.”
Participating schools are invited to nominate up to nine students for this programme. These students and their teacher in-charge will attend a half-day interactive workshop in February 2020 to equip them with skills such as design thinking, project management and polling methodologies. In addition, each approved proposal would also receive up to $150 funding to help kick start the kindness project.
Upon completion of the kindness project, these nominated students will be honored as FOS Ambassadors. SKM hopes that by giving the students such recognition, it will encourage their peers to emulate their fine example.
The programme is open to all Primary, Secondary, Special Education, International Schools and Madrasahs. To register, please visit https://fos.kindness.sg/. As spaces are limited, we would encourage schools to register early to secure your preferred workshop dates and timing. Registration starts on 2 January 2020, Thursday and closes on 17 January 2020, Friday.
