Character and Citizenship Education 

                                         “Our education system must...nurture Singapore citizens of good character,
so that everyone has the moral resolve to withstand an uncertain future,
and a strong sense of responsibility to contribute to the success of Singapore
and the well-being of fellow Singaporeans.”
Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister for Education

CCE is central to the 21st Century Competencies Framework. It emphasises 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. CCE shifts our focus from programmes and individual endeavours to a common purpose of inculcating values and building competencies in our students to develop them into good individuals and useful citizens.

CCE Vision

The CCE department aims to nurture in our students strong moral values, enabling them to become citizens of good character who will step forward to make a difference.
