In accordance with our values, Sexuality Education is premised on the family as the basic unit of society, to have healthy and respectful relationships between married couples, and stable family units with good family ties and support.

Sexuality Education requires concerted efforts from the home, school, and community. It should begin at home with parents, continue in schools with teachers, and be supplemented by community efforts.

The teaching of knowledge and skills is integrated with the teaching of values which reflect that of Singapore’s mainstream society, to help students make wise, informed and responsible decisions on sexuality matters.
