Emphasise students' holistic growth: PM

While students will continue to be given a strong academic foundation, there is also a need to emphasise their holistic development.

This will ensure they have the skills and values they need for life, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong yesterday.

“We need to build character and inculcate strong values in our children… and provide them with a broad range of experiences and encourage their interest in non-academic areas,” he said at a dinner to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Montfort schools.
