To help enhance our pupils on the 21st century competencies of self-awareness, responsible decision making and social awareness management. We also want to create in our pupils a sense of belonging towards our nation as Singapore citizens and appreciate our past, present and future.
The NESS Department in CHS takes charge of the Social Studies curriculum and promoting National Education to the pupils. Through the Social Studies lessons, we aim to provide opportunities for pupils to discuss how social, justice, tolerance and equality are addressed in societies.
The pupils also discuss the implications on current issues and topics on citizenship faced by the community, nation and world. They also learnt to look from different perspectives and understand the impact on individual and community. This helps to promote development of critical thinking skills, reflective skills and create understanding of what it means to a good citizen.
