HERITAGE EDUCATION HIGHLIGHTS 2020   1

FOREWORD
The National Heritage Board (NHB), together with its museums, heritage
institutions and divisions, have developed a wide range of exciting
educational programmes coming your way in 2020!
These programmes have been curated to encourage active student participation
and to instil in students a greater understanding and appreciation of Singapore’s
heritage. They are developed in partnership with key education partners such as
Ministry of Education, Early Childhood Development Agency and other museum
educators and partners.

As a result of the above partnerships, NHB’s educational programmes are aligned
with the teaching of Humanities, Social Studies, Character and Citizenship Education
and 21st Century Competencies. In addition, as part of NHB’s life cycle approach
towards heritage education, our programmes cater to students at every stage of
their academic journeys, from pre-school to primary school, secondary school to
tertiary level.

At NHB, we believe that heritage education is important because it contributes to a
better understanding of Singapore’s history and plays a crucial role in strengthening
students’ sense of national identity and belonging. Through quality educational
programmes, we hope to provide an engaging and interactive environment to inspire
students to learn about our past, appreciate our present and embrace the future
with confidence.

This booklet acts as a one-stop easy reference tool for educators, parents and
students to explore the various educational programmes offered by NHB and our
museums, heritage institutions and divisions across different age groups.

So sign up for our programmes and experience heritage up-close!
