Programme for Active Learning


As part of the Primary Education Review and Implementation (PERI) recommendations accepted by MOE in 2009, PAL was introduced to Cedar Primary School to strengthen the emphasis on non-academic programmes for Primary 1 and 2 pupils. This is in line with a key desired outcome of PERI recommendations to balance the acquisition of knowledge with the development of soft skills and the CCEDAR values.

PAL helps to prepare Cedarians for a more dynamic future. In Cedar Primary School, PAL is conducted within curriculum time, PAL modules provide Cedarians with broad exposure in areas such as Outdoor Education, Educational Games, Educational Gymnastics, Visual Arts and Performing Arts.

PAL aims to facilitate the well-rounded development of pupils in the five learning domains (cognitive, moral, social, aesthetics and physical) and help pupils to develop social emotional competencies. PAL hopes to nurture Cedarians the 3 Cs, namely, Confidence, Curiosity, Cooperation skills.

In Cedar Primary School, our PAL programme ensures that all its PAL modules entails the 5 Characteristics of PAL. They are:

·         Experiential in Nature

·         Encompasses Learning in a Creative Way

·         Provides Opportunities for Children to Create

·         Incorporates Values Education and Social-Emotional Learning

·         Fun and Enjoyable


Social-Emotional Learning

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which young Cedarians learn to recognize and manage emotions, care about themselves and others, make good decisions, behave ethically and responsibly, develop positive relationships, and avoid negative behaviors. It is the process through which Cedarians enhance their ability to integrate thinking, feeling, and behaving in order to achieve important life tasks. In Cedar Primary School, SEL can best be accomplished through a layered approach of skills lessons, infusion into the curricula and classroom practices, and an environment of safety, respect, and caring which models SEL values.
