About This Course
The Civic Studies pillar aims to reinforce the tangible and intangible heritage and culture of the country. It encourages them to learn about enacting rights and responsibilities as inhabitants of an interdependent and changing world. As a component of that pillar, this course takes a closer look at how responsible adults interact with their families, communities and
societies. This course also explores the effect of individual choices on the social community framework.
Part of the Moral Education curriculum, this course seeks to foster in students a set of universal values, which will enable them to peacefully interact and connect with people from different cultural and social groups who hold different views and perspectives. It seeks to empower them to become active, responsible, local and global citizens. It enables them to develop mutual understanding, respect for difference and empathy in order to sustain our cohesive and prosperous society. Through dialogue and interaction, students are provided with opportunities to explore different worldviews, to challenge one another's assumptions and attitudes and to develop the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to think critically, to make informed ethical decisions and to act on them in the interests of their society.
