Singapore’s education system, known for its robust curriculum and excellent results, is also known for its keen competitiveness and high pressure. The media often highlights issues of examination stress and teachers’ workload. The current pandemic has added more stress to both students and teachers. How does Singapore respond to the twin issues of student and teacher well-being? In this lecture, Dr Ng will describe some recent initiatives to address these issues. He will also share his own reflection: one critical aspect of well-being for both student and teacher is the “bread and butter” issue of teaching and learning. The more we focus on holistic education, which is engaging, joyful and meaningful, and supporting teachers to teach well, the more wellness they may actually and eventually experience.
