National Education/Social Studies

In CZ, we believe that instilling active citizenry in our pupils is important as part of CCE. With increasing globalization, challenges are inevitable.  As we face the next lap in nation building, active citizenry plays a part in maintaining our pride and love for the country. How can your child/ward be an active citizen here in Chongzheng Primary School? 

a)    Being an active participant in our National Education events such as Racial Harmony Day, National Day and our cultural celebrations.

b)    Being reflective of what they have learnt.

c)    Being aware of global issues and current affairs. 

Our tagline is ABC. What is ABC?

Appreciate - our country, its history and the peace and harmony that we enjoy.

Build Bonds – make friends with people of the same race or of other races and nationalities.

Contribute – share your experiences and stories with your fellow schoolmates.
