At Jurong Secondary School, Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) is an integral part of our students’ holistic development. Our goal is to cultivate a “Champion Mindset” in all our students, enabling them to reach their full potential. We strive to nurture students of exceptional character, grounded in strong values, and with a genuine concern for their school and society. By doing so, we aim to develop the next generation of responsible and ethical leaders who will make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
Our Student Development Framework
The school adopts a holistic approach to the development of our students by implementing a student development framework that integrates both the Curriculum and Co-curriculum. Our Co-Curriculum comprises Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) and other student development experiences (SDEs), including Enrichment, Learning for Life Programme, Education and Career guidance, Values in Action, Student Leadership, Co-curricular activities, and Citizenship Education. These programmes provide rich and authentic opportunities for CCE beyond the classroom.
With the school values and the MOE 21st Century Competencies in mind, our CCE programme enacts the five enablers of Positive TSR, Positive School Environment, Peer Support, Student Voice & Ownership And Professional Development effectively. Through our efforts, we strive to achieve the developmental outcomes for our students towards our school’s outcomes of Flexible Thinker, Confident Person, Persevering Learner, and Concerned Citizen.
Our CCE Curriculum Guiding Principles
Our approach to CCE centers around our students. We prioritise understanding their needs, interests, and aspirations and provide a range of learning opportunities that align with their Developmental Milestones. Our focus is on facilitating student engagement and voice and empowering them to find personal significance in their contributions to both the school and the community.
Our CCE approach is intentionally designed and carried out both in and beyond the classroom to ensure that learning is not left to chance. We clearly articulate the intended Learning Outcomes for our students and provide support for teachers to engage and effectively impact students in their learning.
CCE cannot be perceived in a silo or taught as a subject. Instead, the educational experience that we provide in our schools, for our students, needs to facilitate the development of character and citizenship dispositions, and social-emotional well-being, in a coherent way across the co-curriculum and the school environment. We leverage multiple touch-points, including students’ social interactions and daily challenges. Additionally, we enable our students to connect, transfer, and apply their learning across various learning experiences to ensure their overall development.
