Education Minister Chan Chun Sing has said that students should be charged with guiding Singapore to its 100th anniversary and that every generation of students must be a pioneering generation.
Mr Chan also outlined qualities that Singapore must have to succeed, namely, be confident, curious and connected.
Mr Chan said previous generations have weathered challenges such as Konfrontasi, global economic recessions and oil crises, and the current youth will have to find their own way through its unique circumstances. He said that Singapore’s youths will have to navigate a more contested geo-political environment, transform the economy and entrench Singapore as a global digital node.
Our students and youths must also transcend its energy and carbon challenges and develop new solutions to improve the country’s land use.
