Converging to Build a World Class Education System
The wealth of a nation lies in its people. That’s why our mission is to mould the future generation. But this cannot be done by a single individual. At MOE, everyone has a part to play. From educators in schools to executive positions at MOE headquarters, everyone works hand in hand to shape our education landscape.
Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) are an integral part of our students' holistic education. Through CCA, students discover their interests and talents while developing values and competencies that will prepare them for a rapidly changing world. CCA also promotes friendships among students from diverse backgrounds as they learn, play and grow together. Participation in CCA fosters social integration and deepens students' sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility to school, community and nation.
Every secondary school student takes part in one CCA taken from the following options:
- Clubs and Societies - Physical Sports - Uniformed Groups - Visual and Performing Arts Group
Uniformed Groups features the nine Uniformed Groups (UGs) in our Singapore schools, namely the Boys’ Brigade in Singapore, the Girls’ Brigade Singapore, Girl Guides Singapore, National Cadet Corps, National Civil Defence Cadet Corps, National Police Cadet Corps, Red Cross Youth, St. John Brigade, and Singapore Scout Association.
Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) aims to inculcate values and build social and emotional competencies in students. This in turn is to develop them into good individuals and useful citizens in a fast changing and globalised world. It develops students through an understanding of the values that define the Singapore society, inspiring them to show concern about the world they live in, and demonstrate empathy in their relationships with others.
MOE Kindergartens are located within primary schools and community spaces, where collaboration can thrive.
Our vision is to provide a strong start for every child. We seek to do so through providing quality pre-school education that is affordable to Singaporeans and catalysing quality improvements in the sector.
We nurture children holistically, so that they are confident, have strong social skills and a good foundation in literacy and numeracy.
