A. The CCE Curriculum Content is based on the three big ideas of Identity, Relationships and Choices. It comprises the learning of core values, social and emotional competencies, and citizenship dispositions, with a focus of developing a sense of purpose in our students. It includes the following: National Education, Sexuality Education, Mental Health, Education and Career Guidance, Cyber Wellness and Family Education.
B. Enactment of CCE Curriculum: This occurs intentionally through learning platforms such as CCE Lessons, key Student Development Experiences (SDEs) such as Values in Action, school-based initiatives, other subjects and opportunities for personal application.
C. Caring and Enabling School Environment: A school environment that enables effective CCE includes adult role-modelling, positive teacher-student relationships, peer support and relationships (e.g. Peer Support Programme, Class Spirit Award), student voice and ownership and consistent and coherent messaging on CCE. There are also ample platforms to develop supportive relationships in the classrooms through regular, structured sessions for students to speak, listen, interact and share concerns e.g. FT Periods, Class Meetings, Circle Time.
We are certain that with all this, every Bedok Viewan will grow to be a Responsible, Global Citizen with Exemplary Character, as mentioned in the lighthouse.
