Key CCE Programmes

CCE vision.png

In our efforts to nurture students who are caring and gracious citizens, Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) in Yumin is delivered through a 3-Phase TRA approach; Teaching, Reinforcement and Application. This is in line with MOE’s CCE learning outcomes and 21st Century Competencies. The teaching of CCE is developmental and progressive, with structured programmes for each level.

CCE TRA.png
Phase 1 - Teaching & Learning
Teaching & Learning of CCE includes teaching of knowledge, skills, values and attitudes. These are to be taught explicitly in CCE lessons by Mother Tongue teachers, *Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP) and Values Education Programme (Assembly & Differentiated Class Values Talk)

*Social and emotional competencies (including Cyberwellness; and Education and Career Guidance) are explicitly taught during FTGP. In addition, Form Teachers bond with pupils through interaction activities within the period. Teachers also conduct Teacher-Pupil Conferencing (TPC) during this period to foster better relationship with their students through one-to-one interaction with pupils.


Phase 2 - Reinforcement 
The skills, knowledge & values taught in the teaching phase are reinforced through learning experiences provided at the school level:
Programme for Active Learning (PAL) - for Primary 1 & 2 pupils
Learning For Life Programme (LLP) & Applied Learning Programme (ALP) for P3 to P6.

Phase 3 - Application (VIA)
Students will put into practise what they have learnt through identified level VIA programmes. These identified learning experiences are aligned with the 8 learning outcomes of CCE. They are provided for the application of values, knowledge, skills and attitudes.

A. Values Education
Our Values Education programme is decentralized and run by the class Form Teachers. In the aspect of developing the child's character, Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) is aligned with the school’s focus of the four school values – Term 1: Respect, Term 2: Compassion, Term 3: Integrity, Term 4: Perseverance. This is to provide explicit teaching of values and developing of character and citizenship to prepare the child for future challenges. In an effort to recognize pupils who demonstrate these values, teachers will select pupils from each class as Values Champions

B. Form Teacher Guidance Programme (FTGP)
Social and emotional competencies (including Cyberwellness; and Education and Career Guidance) are explicitly taught during FTGP. In addition, Form Teachers bond with pupils through interaction activities within the period. Teachers also conduct Teacher-Pupil Conferencing (TPC) during this period to foster better relationship with their students through one-to-one interaction with pupils. 

C. Values in Action (VIA)
Values-in-Action (VIA) are learning experiences that support students’ development as socially responsible citizens who contribute meaningfully to the community, through the learning and application of values, knowledge and skills. VIA fosters student ownership over how they contribute to the community. As part of VIA, students reflect on their experience, the values they have put into practice, and how they can continue to contribute meaningfully. VIA is an important component of CCE.

D. NATIONAL EDUCATION
National Education is an important part of our holistic education. We aim to develop national cohesion, cultivate the instinct for survival as a nation and instil in our students, confidence in our nation's future. It also emphasises on cultivating a sense of belonging and emotional rootedness to Singapore.

The 6 NE messages are:

Singapore is our homeland; this is where we belong.
We treasure our heritage and take pride in shaping our own unique way of life.

We must preserve racial and religious harmony.
We value our diversity and are determined to stay a united people.

We must uphold meritocracy and incorruptibility.
We provide opportunities for all, according to their ability and effort.

No one owes Singapore a living.
We find our own way to survive and prosper, turning challenge into opportunity.

We must ourselves defend Singapore.
We are proud to defend Singapore ourselves, no one else is responsible for our security and well-being.

We have confidence in our future.
United, determined and well-prepared, we have what it takes to build a bright future for ourselves, and to progress together as one nation.
