Character & Citizenship Education
Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) Department
To achieve the above desired outcomes, Hougang Primary School adopts
HEART (HGPians Emphathise, Act & Reach out Together) Initiatives
Intergenerational Learning Programme (ILP)
Hougang Primary School is intensifying its efforts to reach out to the elderly in the community as part of our Values In Action (VIA) programme. In ILP, Primary 4 to 6 students will have the opportunity to interact and engage with the elderly in the Senior Activity Centres. Through this programme, our students can develop a sense of empathy, compassion and respect towards our senior citizens.
Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Through our VIA programme, our students will have the opportunity to interact with students with SEN,
which in the process, can develop students to be more understanding, accepting of the differences and
be more inclusive towards others.
National Education (NE) Programme
NE Commemorative Days and Learning Journeys seek to develop Civic Literacy, Global Awareness and Cross cultural Skills (CGC) in our students so that they can be aware of national and global issues and plays a part to improve the community and nation whilst displaying socio-cultural and religious sensitivity and awareness.
‘Use My Hands’ Campaign
Non-Teaching Staff (NTS) Appreciation Day
Character Value Card
Aligned closely to our school values of Care, Integrity, Resilience and Responsibility, a set of character value cards have been created for the P1 to P3 students to help them understand the importance of these values and to display these values through their daily actions.
Our students are affirmed for acts of kindness and the display of positive behaviours through:
LOVE Hougang Token (LHT)
LHT is a reward system for our students whenever they present behaviors that align with our school values (care, resilience, responsibility, integrity). Each token is 10 points and it will be put up on the token chart. At the end of every term, the tokens will be collated and the top 2 classes of each level will receive their reward!
We would like to motivate our students to give their best in their work, attitude and behaviour. To recognize their efforts, our students can look forward to our STAR Awards@Hougang where students are nominated for this award by their teachers on a termly basis.
