Total Defence Week commemoration
Total Defence – Giving Strength to Our Nation was the theme of our school’s commemoration of Total Defence Week 2015. As part of our efforts to inculcate character and citizenship education in all of our students, the school invited the Singapore Police Force (SPF) to share their ongoing efforts in strengthening the civil and psychological defences of our nation. With their bulletproof van as a display exhibit, the police addressed our school on the dangers of joining gangs. The SPF visit left an impression on many of the students as it gave them an insight into some of the work carried out by the police.
In working with other stakeholders, the school managed to engage various government agencies such as the Customs and Immigration Department, Singapore Children's Society, Central Narcotics Bureau and Lakeside Family Service Centre to set up mini- exhibition booths in the school to showcase their departments’ work. These agencies shared about their departments’ roles and the myriad challenges that they face in serving our nation. With prizes and souvenirs to be won, our students enjoyed visiting the booths as they learned about the Total Defence Day message in a fun and engaging way.
Wrapping up the week, customised Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) lessons were carried out during the scheduled CCE periods. Students were tasked with writing reflections based on a selection of National Education videos that they had watched in class. All in all, the students understood more about how total defence continues to be an important pillar in our society
