In the globalised world, there is an increasing need for Singaporeans to possess a global outlook and operate within multi-national settings. Such a global outlook is best developed from a young age. The provision of overseas immersion by schools would therefore be key.
For pupils, the objectives of Internationalisation programme are:
- To better enable schools to provide overseas opportunities for pupils, the IF will also support Education Officers who embark on networking trips in their official capacity.
- To deepen pupils’ commitment and rootedness to Singapore.
- To expose pupils to the world and sensitise them to the place of Singapore in relation to its global context; and
- To develop pupils to be culturally savvy.
