Our Singapore education system must… nurture Singapore citizens of good character, so that everyone has the moral resolve to withstand an uncertain future, and a strong sense of responsibility to contribute to the success of Singapore and the well-being of fellow Singaporeans.” – Mr Heng Sweet Keat, former Minister of Education
In CCE, our students learn to be responsible to family and community; and understand their roles in shaping the future of our nation.
The goal of CCE is to inculcate values and build competencies in our students to help develop them into good and useful citizens.
- OLGC aims to
nurture concerned citizens of Grace and Character and who contribute selflessly
to society. This aim stems from our belief that character development is the
key factor towards the holistic development of our pupils.
- CCE emphasizes on
cultivating a sense of belonging and emotional rootedness to Singapore. It is
part of a holistic education and it aims to develop national cohesion,
cultivate the instinct for survival as a nation and instil in our students,
confidence in our nation's future. This is achieved through CCE and SS
- In addition to
the 4 core NE events, level learning journeys also infuse CCE components to
achieve the CCE outcomes.
