Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) Programme
West Spring Secondary School CCE Programme strives to provide a strong student character and leadership development focus. The design of the school’s CCE Curriculum takes reference from MOE’s CCE 2021 Curriculum Frame (Figure 1) and is anchored on the school’s vision, mission and values.
MOE CCE Lessons are customized and incorporate the school values into the lesson objectives. This includes content areas of National Education (NE), Sexuality Education (SEd), Mental Health (MH), Education and Career Guidance (ECG), Cyber Wellness (CW) and Family Education (FE), in ways that are age-appropriate and meaningful for our students.
The discussion of contemporary issues in the CCE lessons will be a regular feature. Current and relevant topics will be discussed in a sensitive and open manner in a safe environment where students learn to appreciate multiple points of views, exercise critical thinking and respect for each other, even when perspectives differ.
School-based lessons with relevant scenarios are designed to focus on school values. We strive to develop our students to have a sound moral compass, a strong sense of right and wrong, taking responsibility for choices and actions, be caring towards others and be resilient when faced with challenges.
The Character Report Card
The Character Report Card (CRC) is a tool the school employs for the purpose of formative assessment of the child in character building. It aims to equip the child with all round feedback and involve stakeholders in conversation for the child’s character development. This program leverages on the partnership between parents, form teachers, subject teachers and CCA teachers, in conversation to and action, to develop the child’s character. The Character Report Card is implemented during the Lower Secondary Years.
Recognition of Good Character
In recognition of exemplary character, the Edusave Character Awards are awarded to Secondary Four students who have consistently exhibited exemplary character, demonstrating the values of Responsibility, Resilience, Respect, Care and Integrity.
