The Global Citizenship Programme plays a pivotal role in fostering SST students to become global citizens who see the world as an interconnected set of systems; who seek to interact with and learn from people from diverse cultural backgrounds; who possess the attributes that will allow them to take advantage of the myriad of opportunities abroad; who develops respect and empathy for those whom they share the planet with and who are willing to take action to contribute to a just and sustainable world.

 It also promotes self-awareness, self-management and responsible decision-making in the students and provides them a platform to develop in areas such as CCA, Service Learning, Leadership and Academic Domains.
