Singapore Children’s Society 70th Anniversary Learning Festival

Join us for a day of learning on Friday, 14 October 2022. Our exciting line-up includes:

Learning Session 1

Vulnerable children’s journey home

Hear from experts on ensuring safety and support when reunifying children in out-of-home care with their birth families.

Learning Session 2

Children’s mental health: Beyond awareness

Are we giving enough attention to children’s mental well-being? Join us in this panel discussion on the collective actions that can be taken.

Learning Session 3

Physical discipline in families: Can we spare the rod?

Find out what research tells us about the use of physical discipline in Singapore.

The full synopses of our three learning sessions can be found here.

We will also be holding our 15th Singapore Children’s Society Lecture on 14 October. Taking the podium this year is Mr Desmond Lee, Minister for National Development and Minister-in-Charge of Social Services Integration. Minister Lee will be speaking on “Strengthening our Social Service Delivery”. He will examine, more specifically, the kinds of skills, processes, and systems we need to put in place, to better coordinate our social services around vulnerable families. 

The festivities will end off with the launch of “Thinking of Children: The Singapore Children’s Society Collected Lectures (2015 – 2021)”. This is the second book in our series of collected lectures by distinguished speakers on various aspects of childhood.
