Assembly Assembly is a weekly forum to celebrate and share the achievements of all our learners. Playgroup to Year 3 on Ketimus Raya has Assembly on a Wednesday and years 4- 9 on Thursday at Kayu Besi. Parents are always welcome to join the Assemblies and they are valued as an effective communication tool.
The presentations at Assembly reflect the learning that has taken place during the Unit of Inquiry for primary years and the content for the middle years. Students lead the Assembly and in many cases take responsibility for the organization and rehearsals. The learner profile underpin the Assembly.
Scouting Sekolah Buin Batu Scouting promotes spiritual, social, intellectual and physical development. Scouting allows students to develop their profile, leadership and life skills.
Activities in this program help students form strong bonds and a sense of cooperation, teamwork, confidence and responsibility. It has been interesting to see that some students have excellent leadership potential, and this becomes obvious as they participate in shared activities.
Art Festival The Annual SBB Arts Festival was celebrated on Wednesday evening with an enthusiastic audience of School Board members, parents and friends. Great pride and joy was displayed on the children’s and their parents ‘faces. “Smiles are everywhere….” as is stated in our school song was certainly the case.
Through the Arts Festival, we celebrate the importance of the Arts as a life skill and a learning tool. We cannot underestimate the importance of the Arts to create flexible, imaginative problem-solvers who can communicate their ideas in many ways. We witnessed music and singing, drama and mime as our whole school shared their skills
Student Council Student Representative Council is a media for students to live the Learner Profile. The SRC’s mission is to make contribution to local communities.
Student Councilors speak to their classes and discuss council events, who they can help and how they can help them. Often the councilors do fieldtrip surveys to see firsthand what a charity situation is like. They make assessments from these surveys and feedback suggestions to the student council.
The SRC runs regular events like Bazaar and Auction aimed to promote awareness of the less fortunate and to raise money to assist them.

Some students participated in a dental care program at Maluk. They distributed toothbrushes and taught the children how to clean their teeth properly. Another group of students collected money, food and clothing to deliver to the refugees,
Excursions Excursion allows students to find connections between what they learn with the real-world experience and use primary sources in their learning. This adds value to the knowledge/information the students obtain from secondary sources like books or other printed materials.
