The children of today will define the generation of tomorrow. The hopes and dreams of each succeeding generation are different, shaped by the different experiences, opportunities, and challenges. We must adapt to make sure that Singapore remains the place for all our children to grow and develop their fullest potentials. At the same time, we must instil the right values in our young to give them the wisdom and confidence to lead and contribute to society in the future. How can we, the Singapore community cultivate these values? How can we lay the groundwork for them to one day become leaders in their own right?
