We are pleased to inform you that the Edusave Character Award (ECHA) is now open for nominations. This award enables schools to recognise students who demonstrate exemplary character and outstanding personal qualities through their behaviour and actions. This award will affirm students who are not just exhibiting character traits and behaviour that are socially expected of them at their age but recognise those who have gone the extra mile in inspiring others, serving the community and overcoming real-life challenges. This award also supports schools’ continuing efforts in nurturing students of good values and character, who are active contributors and concerned citizens.
In Blangah Rise Primary School, we believe in nurturing confident learners and caring leaders. These are Blangahnites of good values and character, who can contribute to the community by caring for those around them. This award will further strengthen the school’s recognition of model students who consistently demonstrate exemplary character. It can also inspire all our students to strive towards being students with strength of character. The ECHA presentation will take place during the year-end Speech and Prize Giving Ceremony.
To be eligible for the ECHA, students must fulfil the following criteria:
- be a Singaporean studying in the school;
- has a conduct grade of “Very Good” or “Excellent”; and
- consistently demonstrates Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Happy Kids for personal and inter-personal effectiveness and the virtues which support the habits. Students must have demonstrated qualities in going the extra mile to help others and showed commitment in making a difference to their community.
If you find any of our Blangahnites deserving of this award and wish to nominate them, please complete the nomination form and return it through your child/ward or to the General Office. Alternatively, you may also submit your nomination online using the QR code below. The closing date for nomination is Tuesday, 28 July 2020.
