Our Vision: Every Child, A Responsible Citizen of Good Character

Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) is the bedrock and heart of the Singapore’s education system. Students will develop social and emotional intelligences to be responsible towards self, family, school, community, nation and the world. They will acquire the competencies (values, knowledge, skills and attributes) to be a self-directed learner, confident person, active contributor and concerned citizen who can manage self and relationships effectively while making responsible decisions.

At Sembawang Primary, we envision that every child is a responsible citizen of good character who:

  • Cares for self, others and the community; 
  • Acts with integrity by doing the right thing even when no one is watching and having the courage to stand up for what is right; 
  • Is resilient, able to rise above challenges and learn from their setbacks;   
  • Has the heart of gratitude and paying forward, showing appreciation for self and others; 
  • Exhibits excellence by doing their best in all things with love and commitment; and 
  • Is curious and keen to learn

The emerging trends and global developments requires our children to have a set of core values that would guide their moral compass, and social and emotional competencies that would help them to establish positive relationships and handle challenging situations effectively. Our goal is inculcate moral values in the children so that they have the ability to evaluate their options, identify the consequences and make responsible choices. Children will also acquire skills related to citizenship competencies that develops them to be responsible citizens who are concerned and committed to contributing to our nation’s well-being.
