What's NE?

National Education (NE) is about engaging the hearts and minds of Singaporeans in developing a shared sense of nationhood. By helping our pupils to gain an appreciation of who we are as a nation, NE contributes to building a country where our people are proud of being a Singaporean, confident of our future and committed to Singapore. 

The 4 Core NE Events:
