Character and Citizenship Education

Department Vision:

A Leader, A Keen Learner and A Friend

Department Mission: 

For every Clementian to be exemplary in character and become active contributors and concerned citizens.

CCE CCE@CTP Programmes 

In alignment to MOE’s 21st Century Framework and Student Outcomes, as well as the school’s vision, mission and values, many programmes have been designed to provide a robust Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) for our pupils. CCE in the school places a strong emphasis on character development, leadership development and building in all Clementians a strong sense of belonging to the school and nation. These programmes also encourage prosocial behaviour through the strengthening of social-emotional learning competencies.

The mindmap below aims to capture the inexhaustive list of CCE experiences in the school and illustrates that CCE is being infused in all academic and non-academic subjects. CCE@CTP programmes refer to the broad range of programmes including the school’s Assembly Programmes, Form Teacher Guidance Period, Very Important Pupil programme, Habits of Mind lessons, Values lessons and Values In Action projects.

Very Important Pupil programme      

With a deepening conviction of the importance good teacher-student relationship in effective teaching, our school embarked on the Very Important Pupil (VIP) programme at the start of 2013 to do just that. Held every Friday morning as a pre-assembly activity, Form teachers and Co-Form teachers meet up with every pupil in the class individually to better understand each child’s life experiences and build deeper bonds with them. Teachers were also able to apply skills learnt from the Transactional Analysis training they had gone through in the years 2012, 2013 and 2014. Many teachers gained greater self-awareness and this allows them to better understand their pupils who are also affected by their own life experiences.

Assembly Talks


Throughout the year, the school also organises Assembly Talks covering a range of issues such as Cyber Bullying, Kindness, Climate Change and Recycling. Some of the Assembly talks are conducted by external partners such as the Singapore Police and the National Environment Agency.
