Learning for Life Programme

What is LLP?

The Learning for Life programme will provide students with real-life experiential learning to develop their character and values, cultivate positive attitudes, self expression and strengthen their people skills. This will be an integral aspect and a distinctive signature approach of Character and Citizenship Education (CCE). The intent is to instill in our students a sense of rootedness and responsibility for their community and fellow Singaporeans. Areas can include, among others, outdoor adventure learning, sports, student leadership development, uniformed groups, performing and visual arts.


Our LLP vision is guided by our belief that sports, when presented and organised meaningfully, will yield three benefits, i.e. to positively impact the physical, psychological and social well being of a teenager. Through participation in sports, our students not only build up their physical fitness but acquire strong character and desired values.

Our Framework

JSS’ Sporty at Heart, Sporting in Mind programme adopts a 3-tiered approach of (1) Know, (2) Do and (3) Excel, which is applied across different levels of participation (from mass participation to participation by the talented or passionate). It emphasizes value acquisition and transference of such values into the way we live and work.

Value and Impact

Through active participation in sports at the three levels (know, do and excel), through competitive and non-competitive platforms, our LLP seeks to support the building of core values, as articulated in the desired outcomes.


A community where all staff and students embrace sports as part of their lifestyle and collectively build a culture where sports serve a dual purpose of promoting healthy lifestyle and inculcating values.

Sports Scholarship

Background Initiated in 2011 under the sponsorship of our School Advisory Committee (SAC), the Sports Scholarship seeks to nurture students with talent in Basketball and Volleyball to excel in their proficiency in these games (i.e. part of JSS’ Sports Excellence Programme). The terms of the award include school fees, uniforms, textbooks and full subsidy for participation in overseas training trips.
Rationale The rationale of Sports Scholarship are twofold,(a) motivate current school players towards excellence, and(b) interest students who are passionate and talented in the two games to join JSS.
Award Process In line with the intention to motivate current school players towards excellence, Sports Scholars were selected from the existing pool of school players based on their high level of play and strong commitment to the school teams. Regarding recruitment, the school actively invites and offer the scholarship to players from primary schools who showed potential in Basketball.
