Through interaction with our speakers with relevant experience in their respective fields, this programme aims to provide students with insights into current affairs and latest issues in political, economic and social developments that affect the Singaporean way of life. 4 popular topics which are relevant for General Paper and Current Affairs are available for bookings.
The lecture will focus on the rising threat of radical and extremist ideology and the negative impact it has on the world and the region, especially Singapore. The dangers posed by transnational terrorism to the self-radicalised extremists will be explored. The session will draw attention to the dangers posed by cyber terrorism such as extremist websites and videos and how they have influenced many self-radicalised extremists around the world, as well as the severe impact this can have on the social fabric of Singapore.
With increasing countries setting up walls as well as putting up trade/ political barriers to protect their borders, is there an increasing need to maintain good international relations yet preserve the nation’s sovereignty and national interests? The lecture aims to highlight and discuss why international relations are important in this globalised world and to give insights into some key principles of Singapore’s foreign policy. It will examine how Singapore, commonly known as the “Little Red Dot” maintains its international relations within the region and beyond. The lecture will also highlight how Singapore works with major countries such as USA, China and India, as well as regional and international organisations such as UN etc. in trade and diplomacy.
The lecture aims to highlight how our perception and understanding of racial stereotypes can be easily influenced by the mass media especially social media, families and friends, the people around us as well as our personal experiences. Awareness of these stereotypes can help us to be more mindful of how such perceptions can affect our daily actions and decisions on how we should behave towards other racial groups. It also aims to inculcate the understanding and appreciation of Singapore’s rich racial and religious diversity and how everyone has a part to play to maintain racial harmony, which should not be taken for granted.
Using each symbol of our National Flag, from the red and white colours to the five stars, the lecture aims to highlight how we, as a nation is committed to our national ideals and work together as one people and one nation to overcome current and future challenges. The five stars of Democracy, Peace, Progress, Justice and Equality will be further elaborated based on Singapore’s nation-building years and her development.
