MOE SPED Learning Day 2015

SPED Schools closed yesterday for MOE SPED Learning Day. This was a day dedicated for educators to network and learn as a community.

Pathlight staff started the day in school at 7.30am for breakfast. This was then followed by a morning of engaging peer sharing and learning. After the sharing & learning session, staff penned down their wishes as educators and reflections on leaf-shaped notes. These were later pinned up at Resorts World Singapore where all SPED schools gathered for the afternoon session.

In his address, Acting Minister for Education (Schools), Mr Ng Chee Meng shared that curriculum improvements must be student-centric and outcomes-focused.

He said, “As curriculum leaders, you should never lose sight of the child. I urge you to know your students well, and work with their families and caregivers to set meaningful and aspirational goals to help them achieve positive outcomes in living, learning and working.“

The MOE SPED Learning Day was a good platform for learning. Pathlight educators remain committed to ensure that we continue to focus on our students and work in collaboration with our parents to achieve the best outcomes for our students!
