Character & Citizenship Education

CCE has always been at the heart of Singapore’s education system. In CCE, our students learn to be responsible to family and community; and understand their roles in shaping the future of our nation. The emerging trends and global developments that impact our society, such as societal changes, globalisation and technological advancements are taken into consideration in the development of the CCE Curriculum in school.

Besides the infusion of CCE into every subject, the three main areas focus of CCE department are National Education & Social Studies (NESS), Values In Action (VIA) and Environment Education (EE). The department programmes are planned and implemented with the intention to inculcate values and build competencies in our students to develop them into good individuals and useful citizens.  They emphasize on the interconnectedness of the core values, social and emotional competencies and civic literacy, global awareness and cross-cultural skills that are critical for character and citizenship development of our students.
