National Education

In 1996, National Education was identified as important to the development of young Singaporeans and their sense of identity. It is described as ‘an exercise to develop instincts that become part of the psyche of every child, to engender a shared sense of nationhood and an understanding of how the past is relevant to our present and future.’

National Education values and frameworks have since been integrated into the local education system with messages appearing ubiquitously in school exercise books. This exercise book examines the notion of entrenching messages of Nationhood in our young.
