National Education


National Education (NE) at Yangzheng Primary School engages Yangzhengnites in the development of values, knowledge and 21st century skills and competencies to realize the school’s Vision of ‘Every Yangzhengnite: A Passionate Learner, Caring Friend and Responsible Citizen’. The focus is to develop each Yangzhengnite to be a ‘Responsible Citizen’ who is rooted to Singapore and has a strong sense of civic responsibility.

National Education (NE) Framework

The school’s NE framework with the ‘Head, Heart, Hands’ approach with key thrusts viz Enabling and Equipping Educators , Engaging and Empowering Students and Enhancing NE through Strengthening School-Home Community Linkages articulates the school’s NE goal and is aligned to the Instructional and Co-Curricular Programmes.


Teachers take ownership of NE programmes and they experiment with innovative ways to engage Yangzhengnites in NE. They reflect on their teaching and learning of NE in the classrooms through platforms such as PLCs and customize resources to engage their pupils in NE. A systematic approach is adopted to provide a variety of NE programmes/activities to nurture character and citizenship in Yangzhengnites.
