Character and Citizenship Education
At NCPS, Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) forms an integral part of holistic development of our students. The school’s CCE programme aims to nurture NCPS students into future ready leaders who are rooted in values, disciplined and capable of leading themselves and others. It embodies meaningful and purposeful learning experiences and student outcomes to help NCPS students understand who they are and what they can do to make a positive impact. These outcomes are derived from the school’s core values of Respect, Responsibility, Sincerity and Perseverance.
The CCE curriculum frame guides and provides key directions for the department in the planning, implementation and review of the various programmes and activities. It takes reference from the existing framework for 21st Century Competencies and student outcomes, and aims to enhance clarity on how the core values are linked to the social-emotional competencies, and how they are internalised and lived out by our students.
Relationship between 21CC Framework and CCE 2021
To achieve these goals, the following CCE programmes are offered:
- CCE Lessons (CCE(FTGP), CCE(MTL), PAL lessons for P1-P2) and Social Studies lessons, with a focus on these content areas, i.e. National Education, Sexuality Education, Cyber Wellness, Education and Career Guidance, Mental Health and Family Education
- Values Education, where NCPS students are engaged biweekly on internalising the core values and how they can express their understanding via CCE badge design and active contribution to their class/school community (e.g. in Clean & Green Classroom)
- Values in Action (VIA): VIA, such as Eco-Stewardship Programme and Appreciation Programme for our community partners provide platforms and opportunities for NCPS students to apply knowledge, skills and values acquired through meaningful contributions to the class, school and Sengkang community
