Strengths-Based Development Camp for Gan Eng Seng School 2016
To kickstart the final year of their secondary school life, 300 students from Gan Eng Seng School went through 2 full days of "Strengths-Transformation" with Kingmaker Leadership Institute.
It was to be the best possible preparation for a gruelling & defining year ahead - students will face National exams in the form of the GCE "O" or "N" level. It was crucial that students were to be prepared, inspired & motivated to conquer the exams to the best of their ability. The class dynamics was also a key factor to predict successful outcome.
Kingmaker customised a series of programmes for the graduating cohort:
- Discovery & appreciation of each students' talent themes (StrengthsTransform™
CAMPUS & StrengthsQuest)
- Synergising with peers to form effective teams in learning (StrengthsTransform™ TEAM)
- Adding study skills to their talent in order to operate effectively ("Managing Media-Multitasking for Academic Productivity")
- Acquiring social etiquette to enhance one's social competence (StrengthsTransform™ ESTEEM)
What Participants Say
Before programme, I was bored and thought it was useless. But after the programme, I learned a lot about myself and I am excited of my future - Wei Kang, Class 4A
Before programme, I only knew some of my strengths, I didn’t know how to improve them, I just thought it will be better after every experience. After the camp, I realised strengths are not just general terms. I learnt about my 5 talent themes and how to improve them. Most importantly I can put everybody's strengths together because everyone is unique. - Yanling, Class 4A
I think I can do well as a student becuase I have my friends to help in and I know what subjects that I am weak in and practice more on that subject. Also I know how to prioritize things better now. – Eileen Ngah, 4C
Kingmaker & StrengthsTransform wishes the GESS batch of 2016 every success & fulfilment in their journey ahead!
