Cybernetics Club

Anderson Cybernetics Club is a long-running organization in the school which aims to encourage innovation, critical thinking and technical skills in students. Over the years, Cybernetics strives to provide an inter-disciplinary and problem-based learning experience where it encourages innovation, critical thinking and technical skills in all of our members. We also aim to cultivate excellent leaders and thinkers by training our members who have the passion to excel in building and programming miniature robots to take part in competitions. Through participation in local and inter-school competitions, members learn much more than they can expect from a CCA; the true meaning of team spirit, perseverance, teamwork, diligence and time management to name a few.

Library Club

LibBookofSecrets_03

The library club is the CCA of choice for Andersonians who love books or who enjoy rendering a service. All librarians are trained and expected to carry out the usual library house-keeping duties such as book-shelving, book processing and repair, counter duty and patrolling. Apart from these, librarians are expected to be part of project groups that will give them the opportunities to develop team spirit, leadership skills and sense of accomplishment.

This year, a total of 4 reading activities were conducted for students of Anderson Secondary School. These activities have received positive feedback from the students and teachers.

Here is an overview of 2 of them:

Book Buzz
During this assembly book talk given by the National Library Board, students were introduced to selections from different genres.

Lib_BookBuzz

Book of Secrets
The student librarians visited Ang Mo Kio Public Library for the Book of Secrets activity, where they were introduced to the different services available there. The students were also taught on how to maximize the use of the services in the library, and they had an exciting book hunt at the end of the session to test their knowledge.

Anderson Science Academy

SRA_Collage_02

The CCA aims to develop students who have a keen interest in Science and are excited about deriving new knowledge through exploration and conducting investigative research. This is achieved through inculcating in students the understanding and appreciation of the Scientific Inquiry and Thought processes, as well as training them in the use of dataloggers and high end scientific instruments like Ion Exchange Chromatography and UV Spectrophotometer

Over the course of the programme, students will experience the following:

– Mentorship experience under local scientists from tertiary institutions.
– Training workshops on the use of advanced scientific instruments.
– Self-directed scientific investigations of their interest with guidance from CCA teachers in charge.
– Enrichment programmes, such as local and overseas learning journeys, to deepen students’ knowledge of scientific application in daily lives.

Students in the Science Academy (otherwise known as Science Specialists) will also be given the opportunity to participate in zonal and national science-related competitions to further hone their skills in science research. This will be an invaluable experience for the Science Specialists and it will stand them in good stead should they decide to continue their pursuit in this field in the future.

Debate Society

04_DEBATE
Pupils who have an interest in debating proper, or are simply looking for a platform to vocalize and share their opinions will enjoy their journey with the Debate Society. They will learn to research on interesting matters concerning society and the world at large, expanding their knowledge of the world and broadening their horizons. Debating will also hone their speaking, writing and presentation skills, as well as develop their soft skills in working as a team.

Students will debate not only among their peers, but also at Inter-school Levels as well as at the National Level. Be it a simplistic issue such as whether pupils and teachers should interact over social platforms, or the universal dilemma whether capital punishment or life imprisonment serves as a justified sentence, here’s a chance for you to exchange your viewpoints and learn to see things in new light.

Under the guidance of renowned debater and adjudicator Mr Adrian Tan, students are promised an enriching and lively experience with the Debate Society.

The Debate Society aims to:

  • Nurture students in their public speaking skills to become polished debaters who speak confidently and eloquently
  • Encourage students to think critically and consider multiple perspectives in order to develop balanced opinions on a range of issues
  • Build self-confidence in students such that they will be confident adults
