Character and Citizenship Education

They aim to teach students how to be responsible for themselves, their families, and their communities and comprehend their roles in molding their own and the nation’s futures. As a result, all OEPS’ CCE programs focus on helping children develop a positive sense of self, positive relationships, and happy experiences. Pupil Development, Pupil Leadership, Pupil Discipline, Pupil Support, and Pupil Well-Being are the six pillars that they have unpacked to ensure a complete approach to CCE.
Program for Active Learning
All P1 and P2 students at Opera Estate Primary School participate in the Program for Active Learning (PAL) during curricular hours. PAL exposes kids to various engaging learning opportunities that help them develop holistically in the physical, cognitive, social, artistic, and moral domains.

Students will gain confidence in their abilities, build a feeling of curiosity and a positive attitude toward learning, and enjoy group experiences and teamwork through the PAL modules.
