POSB PAssion KidsWrite Programme

In celebration of SG50, POSB and People's Association, together with National Library Board and SoCh in Action, launched the KidsWrite Campaign to capture Singapore children's vision of the nation in 2065.

Through this campaign, we reached out to more than 5,000 children in Singapore.

Best entries were compiled into a limited edition SG50 book "Our Homeland 2065: Musings of Singapore's Children" which was launched on 13 Sep 2015 at the POSB PAssion Run for Kids event. Find out more at www.posb.com.sg/kidswrite.

3D Tronics Challenge

3D Tronics Challenge aimed to stimulate students’ interest in science and technology. Students attended workshops on robotics, 3D design and printing lessons and participated in a competition which enabled them to showcase their acquired skills.

Teater Pelajar Production Project

Through this project, students were exposed to Singapore’s history and Malay folklore culture. They went through a series of trainings and put together an SG50 theatre production.
