The school aims to develop students cross cultural skills, global awareness and civic literacy through the National Education (NE) programmes.

The NE commemorative days, such as Total Defence Day, International Friendship Day, Racial Harmony Day and National Day, aim to cultivate appreciation of cultural diversity and to develop students as concerned citizens who stay rooted to Singapore.

Social Studies Field-based Learning

Social Studies learning journeys serve to instill in students a sense of belonging and commitment to the school, community and the country though experiential learning.
