Learning for Life Programmes
CLOVE – Cultivate a Life of Values and Excellence
The CCE curriculum “Cultivating a Life of Values and Excellence” or CLOVE blends daily experiences with personal, social and academic development. It is our goal that the Character Education Program will assist every student in Xinmin Primary to become assets to society by acquiring the following core beliefs and character traits: Care, Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.
“CLOVE”@ Xinmin Primary programme is an integral part of the curriculum at all levels. Character traits are connected to classroom lessons so that students see how a trait might fit into a story, be part of a Science experiment, or how it might affect them. These traits are a part of the instructions of the day- in every class and every subject. This is done by:
- Creating Learning Opportunities in Formal Curriculum
- Exposure for All: Co-Curricular Programmes
Students are given many opportunities to experience character traits, see them in action, and feel them rather than just talk about them. Community-based, real-world experiences that illustrate character traits are included in the curriculum. Values In Actions, cooperative learning and peer mentoring are important parts of the approach. Ample time is also allowed for discussion and reflection.
Students make sense of their new learning. They make connections to prior knowledge, extending their understanding, and modifying any misconceptions. They explore many ways to express their understanding and to share it with others using a variety of processes. As pupils sort out, apply, and express their learning, their understanding of content deepens and their skills are sharpened.

Students acquire new information from a variety of sources. Diverse strategies are adopted to support students’ knowledge acquisition, including learning by doing, through observation, and through verbal and written expression. As pupils learn, they acquire skills in gathering and recording information about the topic or issue.
CCE Learning Journey
CCE Overseas Trips
Students apply their learning in meaningful ways. Through purposeful topics or issues selection and engaging pupils in meaningful learning activities, they recognize the relevance of what they have learned. They begin to formulate their own perspectives and ideas about how to enact positive changes. Pupils “own” their learning and thus be responsible for deciding how they will take action.
