Character and Citizenship Education
One of the activities that the CCE Department organized is the School Cleanliness Competition. This competition is a whole-school approach programme to encourage pupils to become responsible individuals as they take ownership of the school by keeping it clean. Based on the duty rosters that the Form teachers planned, every pupil will carry out his/her duty to keep their classrooms clean. At the end of every term, certificates will be given out to the cleanest class of the each level. Certificate and tokens will be given out to the cleanest class of the year.
In conjunction with the Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM), the CCE Department also aims to encourage pupils to internalise courtesy, kindness and consideration through the various activities that were being carried out during the Bendemeer Kindness Week. A group of 8 pupils were being appointed as our Kindness Ambassadors and their role is to take charge, plan and run the activities with the help of their teachers during Kindness Week.
To better equip our Kindness ambassadors, our ambassadors attended trainings (Singa Workshop) conducted by the Singapore Kindness Movement Council where they got to learn some planning and leadership skills.

Through fun-filled activities, the ambassadors learnt how to brainstorm and conceptualise ideas as a team. They also learnt how to plan and monitor a project during the Singa Workshop.
During the Singa Workshop, ambassadors were introduced to the “Beanstalk Creative Design Thinking”, where they learnt about the method of approaching any problem by putting people at the centre of that problem.
