The Citizenship Committee is in-charge of the planning of Citizenship Education in the school.
The goals of the Committee are:
- Foster a sense of identity, pride and self-respect as Singaporeans;
- Teach the Singapore story — how Singapore succeeded against the odds to become a nation;
- To help students understand Singapore’s unique challenges, constraints and vulnerabilities, which make us different from other countries;
- To instill the core values of our way of life, and the will to prevail, that ensures our continued success and well-being.
The platforms with which we achieve our goals are:
- Infusion of NE Messages through the curriculum
- Commemoration of the National Events
- Learning journeys
- Special morning assembly presentations
- Training of Citizenship Ambassadors
MOE National Education Framework
Head, Heart, Hands Framework
In engaging the “Head”, students should be actively involved in their own learning; beyond knowing, they should think through issues and arrive at a deeper understanding of the challenges facing Singapore and what it means to be Singaporean.
In engaging the “Hands”, students should have opportunities to give back to society, and realise that everyone has a part to contribute to and create Singapore’s future, and, where possible, to lead in different fields of society.“Head”, “Heart” and “Hands” will be the focus of engagement at all levels, but with varying emphases as appropriate to the age and maturity of the students. The “Hands” concept also expands on the original “Lead Singapore” outcome for post-secondary students to emphasise the fact that all students have a role in contributing to and creating Singapore’s future.The three principles in the second ring – Quality, Customisation and Ownership, are guiding principles that underline all of the Committee’s recommendations. In particular, going forward, more emphasis should be given to a customised approachThe outer-most ring represents three key groups of stakeholders that are involved in the delivery of NE – educators, students and the community. This reinforces the idea that NE is owned by everyone, and emphasizes the importance of community partners in the process of NE.Source: http://www.ne.edu.sg/
