About FOS, Secondary

Introduced in 1990, the Friend of Singa (FOS) programme began with the purpose of cultivating desirable behaviours and values in students. FOS Secondary programme is a year-long programme that is open to secondary, special education schools, madrasahs, and international schools.

FOS started out in schools to cultivate desirable values and qualities in students and to champion kindness in the school community. Students from participating schools are tasked to identify issues and they must implement a kindness campaign on campus to promote kindness within their school and community. It is intended that at the end of the campaign, participants will recognize the importance of their role in informing and encouraging desired behaviours; therefore making a difference.
