Character and Citizenship Education

CCE Philosophy

Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) is an essential and integral part of our pupils' learning experience. The goal of CCE is to inculcate the values and competencies in our pupils to develop them into good and moral individuals, who will contribute towards the well-being of the nation. Anchored on the school's vision of nurturing A Community of Aspiring and Gracious Learners, our department’s mission (Anchorlites: Gracious, Prudent and Servant Leaders) to nurture our pupils who are assured of their identities as individuals. As individuals, they are gracious in their conduct, exercise prudence and make informed, moral choices. In addition, we also seek to develop our pupils as Servant Leaders who strive and work towards the improvement of society and self.


  • To create authentic experiences that promotes pupils’ cross-cultural awareness and a global outlook;
  • To infuse CCE Core Values, School Values, 21st Century and Social and Emotional competencies across the Total Curriculum; and
  • To develop the 21st Century Core Competencies and CCE Core Values in our pupils

CCE Core Values

Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Integrity, Care and Harmony

School Values

Respect, Integrity, Confidence and Excellence


MOE’s Desired Outcomes of Education, the 21st Century Core Competencies and CCE Learning Outcomes (LOs) are central to the actualisation of the CCE Curriculum. We believe that values are best ‘caught’ – transmitted via experiential learning experience, capitalising on teachable moments and infused across all platforms. Hence, we adopt a ‘whole-school-approach’ in the intentional teaching and reinforcement of these values and competencies throughout the Total Curriculum. Teachers are a key and essential component to our pupils’ values education journey. They capture these teachable moments, facilitate discussion amongst pupils to draw out and reinforce their understanding and acquisition of these values and competencies.
