Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Venue: Singapore Bible College, 9-15 Adam Road, Singapore 289886
Theme: A National Education: Toward What End?
Speakers: Dr Calvin Chong

Synopsis: Education is one of the fundamental societal pillars upon which the nation's future rests on. While Singapore's education system has a regional and global reputation for excellence, there remains some degree of dissatisfaction with both the outcomes and the processes of the system and its offerings.

Drawing from experiences in theological and Christian education design and evaluation, this session presents concepts and questions which helps us to interpret existing realities, affirm the benefits, and identify the gaps within our present educational system. It also invites reflection on how the Christian community can make significant contributions within and without the system..
