Teamwork and clear communication are building blocks to a holistic educational experience.
At Honsbridge International, we believe in providing these opportunities for our students to sharpen their leadership skills within the safety of our school walls.

Honsbridge Principal’s Committee
This team is the backbone of all our activities. From setup to teardown, from projections to audio, this team creates the event for the whole school to relish. Large-scale events our HPC has handled before include our Sports Days and yearly concerts (Speech Days).
Leaders here know how to manage logistics, inventory, and manpower to ensure events runs as smoothly as they do in the movies.
Honsbridge Prefectorial Board
When the teachers are not around, the school turns to this team for leadership and direction. The Honsbridge Prefectorial Board maintains order, discipline, and adherence to the values of our school.
The structure provided by the HPB becomes a catalyst for a positive learning and nurturing environment.
Honsbridge Sports Committee
Imagine being a team manager for a sporting event such as the World Cup or even the Olympics. The scale, the practise needed, the burning winning desire; these are qualities we look for in leaders in our Honsbridge Sports Committee.
Leaders here are not those who give commands, but those who command authority through their action, determination, and dedication.Read More
Honsbridge loves that every student has fun and confidence through sports. Hence, every class has a dedicated physical education (PE) lesson once weekly with their PE teacher. Through the PE classes, many student leaders are born through empowerment and guidance. The leaders form the Honsbridge Sports Committee (HSC), a system that empowers the students to assist the Sports House teachers to organise the annual Sports Day.
Besides PE, all the students of the Primary and Secondary belong to one of four Marvel Sports Houses. Namely Yellow Wolverines, White Tigers, Purple Phantoms and the Green Hulks. When a student is nominated to the Sports Captain or Vice Captain or First Aider. Such nomination is held at the highest regard because the teachers believe that the student is capable to be empowered and to discharge the required duties.
At Honsbridge, students play their sports and games to represent their Sports House in the inter house sports competitions. Such competitions empower every student to earn points for their sports house as a team player. Further, under the guidance of the teachers, both the primary and secondary division sports captains are empowered to coach new team members how to play all the games. Imagine students aged 7 to 17 years old learn to play futsal, dodgeball, badminton and many other athletic events such as cheerleading as one united sports house. It is putting aside all the differences in opinions that our students learn and become united for the best of each sports house.
Examples of the events contested by our Primary and Secondary students on our annual sports day.
Honsbridge Mentorship Programme
Student empowerment is the core of this programme for students to take charge of their learning and benefit from peer-to-peer learning. Teachers will guide, counsel and pair up students based on their academic strengths.
The relationship between student mentor and mentee must be undertaken with an open heart and willingness to grow.Read More
