Character & Citizenship Education
Programmes incorporated in curriculum
The school believes that only through holistic education can a child be educated both academically as well as in character. In line with the school’s thrust of developing character, the Character & Citizenship Education Department aims to educate the students holistically and fulfil the school’s mission to ‘Nurture compassionate leaders excelling in service of the community and Singapore’. The focus for Department is to inculcate core values in students, equip them with life skills and develop their leadership qualities. The following are the key programmes we have to develop our students holistically:
Buddy Matching Exercise
During the first week of school, the P6 students are ‘buddies’ to the Primary 1 students during recess to help the younger ones familiarize with the school setting so that they can adjust to a new environment. This exercise also helps to instil values in the P6 students, which is to care for the others.
The Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP) is introduced to primary schools for all levels. The rationale for having FTGP is to provide protected time for form teachers to build positive relationships with their students.
FTGP consists of interactive class activities and life skills lessons that aim to equip students with SE competencies. In Compassvale primary, we believe in the importance of fostering good relationships with our students and social emotional learning.
CVPS Point System
It is a school-based reward system to encourage students to exhibit positive behaviour. It encourages students to practice the school core values and thereby improving the overall conduct of the school.
