Character and Citizenship Education

At TJC, we are committed to nurturing good citizens whose actions uphold our motto, “For College, For Nation”. Through our Citizenship Education, and Values-in-Action programmes, our students become active participants in community and national life. As TJCians step out into the world, we are confident that they will continue to contribute to the larger local and global communities in a spirit of compassion and service.

Citizenship Education

TJC's Citizenship Education aims at enabling TJCians to appreciate what being Singaporean means, and why we work at enhancing social cohesion, the instinct for survival and confidence in the future. Guided by our aims, our Citizenship Education programmes develop students into active citizens who have well-informed perspectives on national issues. We also leverage on our Citizenship programmes as platforms for students to exercise leadership skills by customising activities during National Education Commemorative Days for the entire cohort. These experiences empower students to be active participants in community and national life, while they are at school and in the years to come.

Go Green Day

Go Green Day is an annual event where the whole College ventures out to the Bedok and Chai Chee neighbourhoods to collect old clothing and newspapers from the residents. Each year, more than $15,000 is raised from the collection and all proceeds will go to the Lions’ Home for the Elders and Assisi Hospice. The activity allows our students to do their part for the environment and inculcate our College Value of ‘Compassion’. This year, we managed to collect 38 tonnes of paper and 18 tonnes of fabric, raising a total sum of $16,649.05 from Go Green Day 2020.

IP ACE Initiatives

IP ACE Initiatives is part of IP students’ holistic development. The programme adopts an experiential approach to nurture in IP students the desired outcomes of an ACE TJCian. Through a confluence of Stewardship, Leadership and Citizenship activities, students will be able to experience and reflect as an Active learner, Caring and committed citizen, and Ethical leader.
