PROGRAMMES & ACTIVITIES
Project Culture is a customised school-based curriculum to enhance Secondary 1 students' cross-cultural awareness. Students learn basic concepts of culture, including cultural systems and values, in addition to developing other 21st Century Competencies such as communication, collaboration and information skills.
This non-residential camp enhances students' learning through exposure to various religious systems in Singapore. After the visits, students participate in facilitated discussions, which allow them to share and connect their learning from the different sites. Students also reflect on their attitudes towards the different cultures.
In 2018, Camp Culture evolved to enhance students' understanding and appreciation of the Singapore Story and also the significance of our multiculturalism and heritage through a customised learning experience.
