Character & Citizenship Education

Department’s Vision : Citizens of Honour

Changkat Primary School’s vision of “Learners with Passion, Citizens of Honour” is in line with our belief that Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) is key in developing holistically-educated pupils. The school’s CCE vision, ‘Citizens of Honour’, supports the second arm of the school vision.

The Character & Citizenship Education (CCE) Learning Outcomes state what we want our students to learn and attain. The CCE Core Values are embedded in the eight LOs. LOs 1 to 4 depict different aspects of character building that are interrelated and feature social and emotional competencies. LOs 5 to 8 are guided by the key tenets of 21st Century citizenship and arranged according to attributes of citizenship such as identity, culture, and active, responsible engagement as members of society.

CCE Learning Outcomes (LO)


Acquire self-awareness and apply self-management skills to achieve personal well-being and effectiveness.


Act with integrity and make responsible decisions that uphold moral principles.


Acquire social awareness and apply interpersonal skills to build and maintain positive relationships based on mutual respect.


Be resilient and have the ability to turn challenges into opportunities.


Take pride in our national identity, have a sense of belonging to Singapore and be committed to the nation building.


Value Singapore’s socio-cultural sensitivity and promote social cohesion and harmony.


Care for others and contribute actively to the progress of our community and nation.


Reflect on and respond to community, national and global issues, as an informed and responsible citizen.

The whole-school CCE implementation anchors on the R³ICH and PRIDE values, the Social and Emotional Competencies and the 21stCentury Competencies.  The SE competencies are skills necessary for children to recognise and manage their emotions, develop care and concern for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, as well as to handle challenging situations effectively. The competencies play a significant role in our pupils’ character development as they build a strong foundation in our pupils. 

The 21stCentury Competencies, which are Civic Literacy, Global Awareness and Cross-Cultural Skills, Critical and Inventive Thinking and Information and Communication Skills, are necessary for the globalised world we live in. Together, these competencies will enable our young to tap into the rich opportunities in the new digital age, while keeping a strong Singapore heartbeat. And thereafter to achieve the Desired Outcomes of Education: to be a Self-directed Learner, an Active Contributor, a Concerned Citizen and a Confident Person.

The school’s CCE programmes are delivered through the curriculum and co-curriculum to achieve the intended outcomes. The design and delivery of CCE as a total curriculum is guided by the 5Ps of CCE (Purpose, Pupil, Holistic ExPeriences, Professional Development and Partnership). Through the E³ approach (Educate, Experience and Excel), all pupils will be provided opportunities to learn through experience and then apply and reflect on what has been taught.
