Mathematics is an academic subject which students generally need more help in. The numeracy coaching programmes are held weekly at the school, where CAG staff coach selected students who have been identified by their teachers as requiring more assistance in numeracy. The one-to-one engagement between student and volunteer allows for more personalised attention, which in turn brings about more tangible improvement.
Youth Passport Programme (YPP)
The Youth Passport Programme provides youths the opportunity to experience first-hand the exciting environment at a world-class airport and get a glimpse of what the working world is like. The visit also exposes them to possible careers at Changi Airport. This gets the youths thinking early about their personal interests and strengths, and different career options, so that they can make a more informed decision before they opt for their course of study in Year 3.
Career Development Programme
The programme complements the school’s curriculum as students benefit from real-life interactions with employers and from the exposure to an authentic operational work environment. Preparatory workshops such as the grooming workshop or the "Be A Service Star" workshop – which is based on the Changi Service DNA, strengthen the students’ job readiness skills. Selected students undergo a five-day job attachment with CAG and various airport partners to gain more real-life work experience.
Local Community Service Learning Programme
We believe in encouraging the youths to give back to society. Whether it is an environment project, or meeting and helping individuals who are needier than they are, the youths learn to better appreciate what they have been given. Students from various CCA groups in NorthLight School participate in workshops (covering topics such as self-awareness, confidence, team-work, event planning) that guide them in planning and executing their own community service projects from start to finish.
