Greenridge Secondary School (GSS) firmly believes in a whole-school approach
to the ownership of its vision, mission, strategic thrusts and core values
ingrained in the acronym, PRIDE, which stands for Perseverance, Responsibility,
Integrity, Diligence and Empathy. The school vision is “Gracious and Dynamic
Global Citizens” while the school mission is “Building Character, Nurturing
Talents”. This is strategically supported by the school’s planned and conscious
efforts to build strong partnerships with its stakeholders, external
organisations and the community.
The partnerships formed help to propel the three strategic thrusts of the
school: Cognitive Development, Character Development (CD) and Capacity Building.
The school also encourages collaborative effort involving our major
stakeholders, together with the staff and students, to cascade its long term
vision which has been in turn translated into individual goals and objectives
towards achieving an all-round education for every student.The partnerships with
stakeholders not only enhance and make authentic the learning experiences of our
students, but also provide them with the opportunities to be connected to the
wider community, both locally and globally.
Our School Advisory Committee (SAC) and the Alumni (DT-GS) have been
providing strong and dedicated support in student enrichment and staff
development. They have provided monetary support for scholarships, bursaries and
overseas trips for sports as well as supported students and staff for special
school functions such as the fund-raising projects and celebrations.
To develop and value-add to our partnership with parents, it is our goal to
have the Parents Connect (PSG) eventually run the school’s family education
programmes more independently, with the school supporting at a more consultative
Since its inception in 2005, DT-GS has aimed to enable our alumnus to
contribute to their alma mater and provide our students with mentors and role
models. We will continue to encourage more ex-students to join the Alumni for
the development of a sustainable good leadership of the Alumni in providing
continual long-term support for the school.
GSS is striving to establish itself as a Centre for Environmental Stewardship
to promote environmental education. With this shared vision, PowerSeraya Ltd
provides the continual support for the school’s attempts to go beyond the norm
of mere event-based sponsorship, moving into a more holistic approach towards an
environmental education via the use of a “first of a kind” learning centre in
Singapore. We have now successfully established this centre of learning, known
as the Energy Learning Hub (ELH), which aims to take the like of the First
Environmental Research Centre, but at a lower level of expertise and technical
know-how because of a younger audience.
The school has been PDS re-certified in 2008. This is in recognition that GSS
has well-defined values aligned to the organisation’s vision and mission which
support people excellence. Since 2006, GSS has continued to provide our students
with a quality school experience, as evident in the overall positive trends of
the QSE results of the past 3 years which indicated a positive student
perception of their school experience. There is a strong evidence of our
stakeholders’ belief and support in the school, home and community
