Values in Action
As stated by Ministry of Education, Values in Action nurtures our students to become socially responsible and develops their sense of belonging and commitment to our country. Through participating in community work, students also learn the value of service and develop lasting friendships with one another.
Service Learning is an approach where VIA participants not only serve the community, but also learn to identify with the needs of the community and to reflect on their own experience in working with the community so that they have a better understanding and appreciation of what it involves.

ABC Kallang River Compound Cleaning
Our school has been involving our pupils in the compound cleaning at Kallang River since 2008. This project inculcates a sense of social responsibility not only within school but also to the community.
Food Donation Drive
We have started our partnership with the Food from the Heart since 2009. Responses from staff and pupils were overwhelming. Since then, we have raised a total food value of more than $9K over the years.
In 2016, the P4 pupils were assigned buddies to the P1 pupils as part of the Volunteer Buddy Programme. This programme helps to orientate Primary 1 pupils into their new school environment. It also gives the P4 pupils an opportunity to guide their younger schoolmates.
Five Minutes Cleaning Daily During Last Lesson of the Day
The Ministry of Education (MOE) wants to make classroom cleaning a daily affair for students. Since 2016, daily cleaning by students was introduced in all schools, said Acting Minister for Education (Schools) Ng Chee Meng. This was introduced with the aim of inculcating in students a sense of responsibility and good life habits. According to MOE, all schools from primary schools to junior colleges have autonomy in the implementation of daily cleaning.
