Our year started with much enthusiasm as we hosted a four-day orientation camp for our newest recruits, SSP’s Class of 2021. At this camp, we shared more details with the scholars about SSP. They learnt about our history, values, expectations and the journey that awaited them. SSP alumni were there in numbers to share their SSP experiences and inspire the new scholars.
Open Days: SSP First Days, the anchors of the SSP scholars!

The Open Days were launched in the first term. The Open Days are SSP’s first school days where all the partners; mentors, parents, partner school, alumni and SSP come together to rally their support to the incoming class and the SSP scholars at the particular partner school.
