Singapore wants creativity not cramming by ZhiGang

Summary: Singapore’s schools have become global role models, with consistently high results in international tests but now the government is trying to cultivate creativity in the students as well. So instead of the traditional images of high-pressure Asian schools, they are trying new ways to learning for students like how students of Rosyth School went on a learning journey in a park with the aim to incorporate science topics and values such as caring for the environment compared to classroom learning.

Opinion: In my opinion, I feel that education should not just focus mainly on academics. Education consists of many aspects. Therefore, I agree with how the government is trying to inculcate new things into students for students will be equipped with new skills from the Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs), Values In Action (VIAs) that is provided by the school. This in turn helps to boosts a student’s characters besides the part on academics. This will in turn help the students in their life ahead.
