CCE Curriculum Objectives
The CCE curriculum supports the students’ development of character, citizenship and leadership with the aim of fulfilling the students’ vision of being the PRIDE of the Community.
To develop each student to be An Altruist:
- Care for others and the environment
- Responsible Citizen
- Moral Reasoning
Components in CCE
As part of MOE’s focus on a Student-Centric, Values-Driven Education, the new Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) curriculum brings together the key components of Character and Citizenship Education, Citizenship Education (CE), and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL); and will emphasise the interconnectedness of the values, knowledge, skills and competencies taught in these three areas.

CCE Guidance Modules
The CCE curriculum provides invaluable lessons and learning experiences to help our students internalise and practise good values and skills, and develop competencies that are critical to character and citizenship development. Through CCE, school leaders and staff will facilitate students’ thinking to help them make responsible decisions based on sound values, and guide them in becoming caring individuals and useful citizens.

Weekly CCE Lessons
In the weekly lessons, teachers use students’ life experiences to form possible contexts for the delivery of CCE, so that students can better retain the knowledge, skills and values taught. The three big ideas of Identity, Relationships and Choices are the core concepts in CCE to enable deeper understanding in the process of character development.
Education and Career Guidance
The goals of ECG are to:
- Enable students to explore viable education and career options through the provision of accurate and comprehensive information;
- Nurture student’s self-awareness, self-directedness and life skills to set wise goals, to continually learn, and add value to their future workplace;
- Inculcate an appreciation for the value of all occupations and how they contribute to the well-functioning of society;
- Equip students with skills and means to positively engage their parents and other career influencers.
ECG is delivered through the 3 key components of classroom learning, community experiences e.g. career talks, industry visits, and work experiences, and career guidance and counselling.

Cyber wellness focuses on developing the students’ instinct to protect them and empower them to take responsibility for their wellbeing in cyberspace. They have the opportunities to explore cyber wellness issues. Regular assembly talks and classroom sessions, workshops for students and parents, as well as counselling for more at-risk students, are provided to promote cyber wellness among pupils.

Values in Action (VIA) are learning experiences that support students’ development as socially responsible citizens who contribute meaningfully to the community, through the learning and application of values, knowledge and skills. VIA fosters students’ ownership over how they can contribute to the community. Students have the opportunity to reflect on their experiences, the values they put into practice and how they can continue to contribute meaningfully. VIA is an important component of our Character and Citizenship Education (CCE).
Citizenship Education, CE (National Education)
National Education is part of a holistic education. It aims to develop national cohesion, cultivate the instinct for survival as a nation and instil in our students, confidence in our nation’s future. It also emphasises on cultivating a sense of belonging and emotional rootedness to Singapore. There is a two-pronged approach in the cultivation of national instincts among students:
First: to develop an awareness of facts, circumstances and opportunities facing Singapore, so that they will be able to make decisions for their future with conviction and realism.
Second: to develop a sense of emotional belonging and commitment to the community and nation. This approach is amply captured in the phrase engaging hearts and minds.
