Character and Citizenship Education (Programmes)


PRIDE Values Assembly Talk:

The five school values, Passion, Resilience, Integrity, Diligence and Empathy, are unpacked for the pupils during the Values Assembly Talk throughout the year. Our teachers present the talk to help pupils better understand how the school values are exhibited in the context of themselves, their peers, family, school, community, nation and the world.

Kindness Week:

In conjunction with the Singapore Kindness Movement, Kindness Week at Bendemeer Primary aims to
  • encourage everyone to start, show and share kindness
  • inspire graciousness one kind act at a time
  • create a gracious society, and make life better for each and everyone
Through an assembly talk, pupils were taught ways they could show kindness in school, at home and in the community.  They were encouraged to complete a bingo sheet on 'My Kind Acts' and reflect on its process during FTGP lessons with their classmates and form teachers.  Through the activitiy, our pupils learnt how a small act of kindness brightens up a person's day!

Pupil Recognition:

STAR Pupil Award

Towards the end of each term, pupils from each class are nominated for the STAR Pupil Award. The award aims to recognise pupils who have exhibited exemplary behaviours in displaying the school values.  It is our hope that they would be a positive role model to their schoolmates.PR.jpg

Well Done Cards

Our teachers write and mail ‘Well Done’ cards to pupils who have made improvement either in their behaviour or academic performance at the end of each term.

We wish to reaffirm our pupils of the progress they have made throughout the year.

Pupil Suggestion Scheme:

We believe in providing our pupils a voice to suggest ways the school can improve in its programmes and environment. Through the Pupils Suggestion Scheme, pupils are given the platform and the opportunity to do so.

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.
