Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Unit @ BRPS exists to assist in developing the social-emotional skills of the students as well as those with learning and behavioural needs. This is to enable them to be competent and confident in reaching their potential.

 Why We Do What We Do

The face of education in Singapore has changed, and is changing rapidly since the nineties. Where previously, it was teacher-centred pedagogy, it has now shifted to child-centred which bodes well in line with preparing the child for the 21st century.

At BRPS, we acknowledge that the pace of change in acquiring the relevant skills can be exhilarating to students if they are equipped with the required social-emotional skills to stay healthy and positive.

Family Matters @ BRPS

BRPS has embarked on the Family Matters@School programme, an initiative by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), to empower parents with the resources, knowledge and skills to nurture positive family relationships, help them better understand their children as well as guide and nurture them holistically.

The Programme Coordinator works together with the School, the Parents Support Group (PSG) and accredited vendors to conduct beneficial talks, focus-group workshops and family-oriented bonding activities. Talks and workshops cover topics relating to parenting styles, communication and behaviour management.

In addition, the initiative also comprises the Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P). The programme is introduced specifically for parents of Primary 3 and 4 students. Triple P is a researched parenting and family support system designed to prevent – as well as treat – behavioural and emotional problems in children and teenagers. It aims to prevent behavioural, emotional problems in children by enhancing the knowledge, skills and confidence of their parents.

Trail of Wonder

Students explore the natural world around them in school and develop a unique trail of wonder. Through the trail of wonder experience, students discover about the world around them and develop thinking routines (see, think, wonder) to support self-directed learning.

The Blooming Garden

Surrounded by such verdant greenery, it is only apt that students are provided with ample opportunities to be more involved in their learning. The Blooming Garden comprises three areas that grow different types of plants and flowers. This programme cultivates lifelong habits such as empathy and responsibility as well as develop self-empowerment and team harmony.

 The Green Snapshots – A Nature & Heritage Trail

BRPS presents The Green Snapshots Trail – a learning journey to appreciate the rich and green heritage of the Telok Blangah District and the Southern Ridges. It is built on the school’s LLP, which weaves nature into the curriculum and provides experiential learning activities for our students.

During the 2½-hour long guided tours, our student-docents will share about the area’s history, flora and fauna, unique architecture and development over the years. This year, there will be two sessions open to members of the public.

Bring along your family and friends and join us for a walk along the green corridor!
