Our school vision is ‘An excellent community of learners, anchored in values’. We believe strongly in the development of your child’s character and values and have been constantly making efforts to do so.

MOE introduced the Edusave Character Award (ECHA) in 2012 to enable schools to recognize students who demonstrate consistent and exemplary character and outstanding personal qualities through their behaviour and actions.

Objectives of ECHA are:

(a)  To emphasise the importance of character and values, on par with achievements in the academic domain;

(b) To recognize outstanding students in each school who are exemplary in character, and who can be role models to inspire others.

Eligibility Criteria:

1.    The award is given out to Singaporean students who have met the selection criteria and who have cleared the selection process.

2.    Students must, on a consistent basis, demonstrate good character and values.

In particular, students may be identified for demonstrating the following types of qualities: 

(i)    Our school values:




I show kindness and respect to everyone.


I am strong and resilient even in trying times.


I value and care for others and the environment.

Commitment and Collaboration

I follow through in whatever I do, working hand in hand with others.


I do my best at all times.

(ii)  A high level of civic responsibility: These would be students who are concerned about issues in the community or issues faced by others, initiating action to address these issues to improve the lives of others, and being committed to make a positive difference.1.     Selection Process
