Online Registration for MOE ExCEL Fest 2014 Sharing Sessions and Seminars is Now Open!

Ministry Of Education Feed - 18 February 2014

An annual event that celebrates and shares exciting and innovative practices in schools, the MOE ExCEL Fest 2014, will be open to the public on Saturday, 12 April, this year. It will be held at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Halls 401-402, from 10am to 6pm. Admission is free.

The theme of the MOE ExCEL Fest 2014 is “Valuing Every Child, Learning for Life”. This is in line with the Ministry of Education’s student-centric focus and equips every child with a broad and deep foundation for a lifelong journey of learning. The event will see around 140 schools coming together to showcase good school practices which encourage our children to explore and discover their interests and talents in a wide range of disciplines.

Parents and interested members of the public will be offered a total of 70 Sharing Sessions and 35 Seminars by leading educators and renowned practitioners on various educational and parenting topics. Topics will range from helping your child to empathise with others to making real world connections in the learning of mathematics. Online registration for these free public sharing sessions and seminars taking place on 12 April is now open on a first-come-first-served basis at the ExCEL Fest website. Activities on 11 April are for teachers and staff of the Ministry of Education.

Visitors to the event can also look forward to 65 exhibits put up by our schools and MOE HQ. Schools will showcase their creative efforts to help develop values, skills and knowledge in our children that provide a strong foundation and prepare them for the future. Among others, exhibits will demonstrate how interdisciplinary learning can go beyond the classroom to expose our children to a greater breadth of knowledge, and how traits of a happy child and good moral character can be developed through Character and Citizenship Education lessons.

Background
