Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) has always been at the heart of Singapore’s education system. The goal of CCE is to inculcate values and build competencies in our students to develop them to be good individuals and useful citizens.


The mission of the department is to nurture Concordians to become morally upright and socially responsible citizens with cross-cultural awareness in a globalised world. The department reiterates the mission to the students through the infusion of Core Values, 21 st CC and SE competencies. The 5C outcomes of the department reiterate the importance of nurturing Concordians in an increasingly complex and globalised world. Through the various supporting structures and processes, a Concordian learns to be a CARING LEADER, a COMMITTED CITIZEN, a CREATIVE THINKER, a CIVIC-MINDED person and an individual who possess CROSS-CULTURAL AWARENESS. 

Department's Highlights:

I AM CONCORD: “I AM CONCORD” is conceptualized to provide diverse learning experiences outside of the classroom to strengthen students’ rootedness and belonging to the school.

Objectives of “I am Concord” programme:

  • To understand and appreciate school’s history

  • To strengthen school affect and school pride


Collaboration with departments (ICT and Outdoor Committee, PAL)

Various learning experiences such as trails and hands-on activities, with different themes, were designed for each level. The students were empowered to take responsibility for their own learning, through experiential learning and by leveraging the current ICT (such as QR Codes, iPads) that are age – appropriate for lesson delivery.

An Overview of the themes for “I AM CONCORD”

Values-In-Action (VIA): In Concord Primary School, all Concordians are given the opportunities to develop into concerned citizens and active contributors through the various school-based Values In Action (VIA) programmes. Our programmes provide our students with authentic contexts which enable them to identify the needs of the community and to reflect on their own learning experiences. These experiences allow the students to appreciate their roles as concerned citizens and active contributors to local and global issues.

Gratitude Project: In Concord, students reflect on the experiences they are grateful for and then express their gratitude in various ways, such as thanking their peers, teachers and school support staff on the Gratitude Wall, postcards and journals. Gratitude is practised pervasively through platforms such as National Day, Labour Day and Total Defence Day. On National Day, for instance, students reflect on what they can be grateful for in Singapore. Concord believes that gratitude is a mindset that can be imparted in subtle ways through putting thoughts into actions. Gratitude Project is also infused into Form-Teacher-Guidance-Period (FTGP) and CCE periods.

CCE@Concord Exploria: The programme is based on learning experiences designed for students in relation to CCE using LJs as a platform. ICT has been incorporated for a paperless LJ, providing an enhanced level of engagement for the students. Resources are adapted to meet the needs of experiential learning and reflections have been infused into the activities as well. For instance, the learning journey to Changi Airport helps to inculcate a sense of rootedness in our P2 students while appreciating the strong foundation laid by our pioneers.

Internationalisation Programme (TIE + Hosting + IS): Interacting with children beyond Singapore is an excellent opportunity for character building and each year, Concordians are given the chance to be exposed to the global environment and to become culturally savvy. Through our Internalisation programme, our students have been hosting students from Chengdu and Jakarta. These platforms allow our students to develop civic-literacy, cross-cultural and global perspectives as they interact with one another. The school also taps on its International students to share with their Singaporean schoolmates through the Buddy to Buddy pledge programme which provides engagement activities for the IS and their Singaporean buddies. The programme also includes the use of activity cards and a special learning journey. 

Inculcating Citizenship through commemorative events: The celebration of the 4 core NE events in the school is a highlight to all Concordians. Each year, the theme for the different celebrations are emphasised and activities and assembly programmes planned accordingly to engage the students and help them realise the importance of the 4 core events. The events are Total Defence Day, International Friendship day, Racial Harmony Day and National Day. With the help of our parent volunteers, recess activities are carried out to reinforce NE messages through the various hands-on activities planned for our students.
