My Singapore Pledge: S. Rajaratnam Storytelling Competition
This competition is part of the S. Rajaratnam Leadership Series 2012, an initiative to promote a culture of engagement and introspection for character and citizenship education. Through the art of storytelling, it also aims to raise our awareness of Singapore’s special history, the contributions of our founding leaders, and the national values embedded in the Singapore Pledge. This programme is a collaboration between the National Library Board, Tampines Changkat Citizens’ Consultative Committee, and Tampines Junior College.
The semi-final round will be held on Saturday, 4th August, at 10.00 am at the Tampines Regional Library Auditorium. The final round will be held on Friday, 17th August, from 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm at the Tampines Regional Library Auditorium. Our Guest-of-Honour will be Education Minister Heng Swee Keat.
