CCE Lesson in Action
St Luke's Eldercare
Cyber Wellness refers to the positive well-being of internet users. It involves an understanding of the norms of appropriate, responsible behaviour with regard to technology use as well as knowledge, skills, values and attitudes on how to protect oneself and other internet users in the cyber world. It looks into the positive physical and psycho social well-being of students in their use of mobile and internet technologies.
Goals of Cyber Wellness
The goal of the Cyber Wellness curriculum is to equip students with life-long social-emotional competencies and sound values so that they can become safe, respectful and responsible users of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
The key messages to students are to:
1. Embrace ICT yet maintain a balanced lifestyle between the physical and the cyber world
2. Harness the power of ICT for positive purposes
3. Maintain a positive presence in cyberspace
4. Be a safe and responsible user of ICT
Respect for Self and Others
Students should be able to:
1. Uphold their own dignity when online (e.g. avoid surfing inappropriate sites and participating in illegal online activities).
2. Respect others (e.g. avoid using the work of others without permission and publishing undesirable materials that hurt others).
Safe and Responsible Use
Students should be able to:
1. Understand the risks of harmful and illegal online behaviours, and learn how to protect themselves as well as to avoid dangers they may encounter online.
2. Evaluate the consequences of their decisions/ behaviours while online and make responsible choices to protect themselves and the community (e.g. not spending excessive amount of time chatting or playing games online, and reporting victims of cyber bullying to a trusted adult/authority).
Students should always "be aware" of issues, "think" before "acting" while they are online. Therefore, "Sense, Think and Act" is a simple learning cycle for pupils to adopt.
Sense. Students should be able to "sense" the risks of harmful behaviours online and learn how to manage such risks as well as protect themselves from the dangers.
Think. To develop students' ability to respond to new encounters in cyberspace, it is important to provide opportunities for students to analyse, evaluate and reflect on cyber wellness issues.
Act. Students should eventually translate their understanding into actions that will keep them safe while online.
1. C-Quest , is a mobile app developed by the Ministry of Education which will serve as a tool to encourage conversations between parents and their children on cyber wellness. Through the game, students will also learn to be safe, respectful, and responsible users of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The mobile version of C-Quest can be downloaded from the iTunes Store and Google Play.

Although FJS ECG Seminar is primarily organized for Secondary 4 and 5 students, Secondary 1 to 3 students were also invited to participate in the event as well.
The key objective of the event is to provide a platform for students to gain deeper insights into the various industries and professions. It also raise awareness of the real working world, and related education and career pathways.
This encourage students to better plan for their educational and career opportunities.

Local educational institutions and organisations also set up their booths in the school hall to provide educational and career guidance and advice to students.
At the end of the event, students gained more insights of the various career choices and education pathways pertaining to different industries. Our students emerged more confident of themselves in planning their education goals.

1. Sexuality Education (SEd) in schools is about enabling students to understand the physiological, social and emotional changes they experience as they mature, develop healthy and rewarding relationships including those with members of the opposite sex, and make wise, informed and responsible decisions on sexuality matters. SEd is premised on the importance of the family as the basic unit of society. This means encouraging healthy, heterosexual marriages and stable nuclear family units with extended family support. The teaching and learning of SEd is based on respect for the values and beliefs of the different ethnic and religious communities in Singapore on sexuality issues.
2. The goals of Sexuality Education are to:
(i) To help students make wise, responsible and informed decisions through the provision of accurate, current and age-appropriate knowledge on human sexuality and the consequences of sexual activity;
(ii) To help students know themselves and build healthy and rewarding relationships through the acquisition of social and emotional skills of self-awareness, management of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours, development of empathy for others, possession of effective communication, problem-solving and decision-making skills; and
(iii) To help students develop a moral compass, respect for themselves and for others as sexual beings, premised on the family as the basic unit of society, through the inculcation of positive mainstream values and attitudes about sexuality.
3. The key messages of Sexuality Education are:
(i) Love and respect yourself as you love and respect others;
(ii) Build positive relationships based on love and respect (which are the foundation for strong families);
(iii) Make responsible decisions for yourself, your family and society; and
(iv) Abstinence before marriage is the best protection against STIs/HIV and unintended pregnancies. Casual sex can harm and hurt you and your loved ones.

5. The subjects that incorporate topics on sexuality include:
b. Character and Citizenship Education (CCE)
Growing Years (GY) Programme:
i. “The Teenage Years (2nd Edition)” (Lower Sec) Teaching & Learning resource package
ii. “Sense & Sexuality (2nd Edition)” (Upper Sec) Teaching & Learning resource package
6. The values and attitudes of our youth towards sexuality are increasingly shaped by their peers, exposure to the media, popular culture and the internet. Adolescence is a complex stage in life as the adolescent attempts to find his/her own identity and often struggles with new social relationships. The period of middle adolescence (generally from 15 – 17 years old) can be a turbulent period for adolescents. The gap between physical and emotional/cognitive maturity may result in a tendency to act on impulse, experiment with various activities (including sexual activities), sometimes without understanding the unpleasant consequences that may arise from such experimentation. The need for peer acceptance can be overwhelmingly strong, and hinder one’s ability to act responsibly. Given the pressures faced by the middle adolescent from within themselves and from peers, it is important to build a strong sense of self-worth, personal conviction and an understanding of the possible consequences of sexual behaviour.
7. Through “The Teenage Years” and “Sense & Sexuality” packages, secondary students will have the opportunity to develop a positive self-esteem, develop their character, and expand their understanding and repertoire of skills to deal with various issues related to sexuality, which are of prime concern at this age.
