Personal Development Programme

Co-Curricular Activities are called Personal Development Programmes (PDP) in Temasek JC because they form an important platform for students to develop their character in addition to their pursuit of excellence in their area of interest. We believe through our programme, students will develop holistically, in particular building their leadership skills, and that they will make meaningful contributions to society in the future.


In Year 1, students will select a PDP from the following list

Cultural & Performing Arts Sports & Adventure Service & Enrichment
Modern Dance
Symphonic Band
Football (Boys)
Squash (Girls)
Volleyball (Girls)
(AV, IT, Robotics and Photography)     
Students' Council (by election)

In Year 4 Term 3, they may choose to stay in the same PDP to further their skills and hone their leadership, or they may choose another PDP from the JC PDP Offering and look forward to a new learning experience.


Every year, students are given many opportunities to showcase their skills and learn to work together in teams through intra-school as well as inter-school competitions and performances. Major college events and external concerts provide a platform for our aesthetics PDP members to perform in front of large crowds.
