The Messenger

As leadership skill development is one of the major skills encouraged to be cultivated in leo members , Leo Club of PCGHS organized an activity on the 9th of January 2016 focusing on communication skills as a leader or member of a team. Undeniably , many youths de-emphasize and tend to diminish the importance of communication in a team . As a leader , it is imperative to convey the message clearly to every member and ensure everyone is clear about their roles in a team in order to increase efficiency , display higher performance as well as have mutual support amongst the team. Leo members were taught to have courage when sharing their ideas , opinions and thoughts and speak up if instructions of the leader is unclear to avoid miscommunication as well as conflicts .
A true leader is not build in a day, nor can there even be a perfect leader. But with the right perspective and rationality, instant respect for one another will be the key towards success. Leo club of PCGHS ROAR !

Out of sight. Out of mind.

In conjunction with the Lions World wide Week in Service in Sight , Leo club of PCGHS organized a sight first activity in the school compound . The aim of this activity is to spread awareness on the imperative need for eye healthcare , instill a sense of gratitude for how fortunate we are thus learning to take care of our eyesight. 

Members were separated into 4 groups and were given tasks to complete respectively while being blindfolded . This made members experience what it feels like to be in the shoes of those visually impaired and realized that it is definitely not as easy as it seems to lose our ability to see and at the same time gained a form a respect and empathy for them .

School Clean-up 2015

To start off a brand new fiscal year , Leo Club of PCGHS has organized a school clean-up involving all leo members . The aim of this activity is to ensure students have a clean and comfortable environment to learn and gain knowledge and at the same time make sure teachers have a suitable surrounding to teach in . Besides that , this activity has instilled the 3R's concept in each and everyone of leo members. Through this event we were all reminded that individuals' collective actions can make a tremendous difference. We might not notice it , but little actions we do every day can make a huge difference in our future. Students were assigned into groups of 10 , each group in-charge of different school compounds to clean up . Recyclable materials were then collected and organized in the 3R station . During this process , members worked together and cooperated with one another very well . They also had the opportunity to talk with acquaintances in this activity and had fellowship amongst members . The activity was held from 10a.m. to 12:30p.m. Although it was tiring , but looking as how the school looks brand new , it was all worth it.
