Character and Citizenship Education


Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) in Serangoon Secondary School hinges on the belief that students need to be engaged in the cognitive, behavioral and affective domain (i.e. knowing, doing and being).

Anchored on the school’s core values and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies, our StaRs are developed through the “Know, Do, Be” approach where they are not only taught what is good but given the opportunity to do what is good and inspired to love what is good. By deploying the “Know, Do, Be” approach in the organization of our CCE programmes, we equip our StaRs with the knowledge, skills, values and social emotional competencies to help them become good individuals and useful citizens.
