Total Defence Day 2018

Our school commemorated Total Defence Day on Tuesday, 13 February 2018. The theme for Total Defence Day this year is ‘Together We Keep Singapore Strong '.

Singapore has remained safe and peaceful over the past 52 years because of the efforts of all Singaporeans. This is essentially Total Defence. Total Defence remains relevant because the threats faced today require all Singaporeans to step up and play their part. Our youth are encouraged to put Total Defence into action in their daily lives by reaching out to one another, forging new relationships and strengthening existing ones to keep Singapore strong and resilient because our greatest strength lies in the unity and resilience of our people.

Throughout the week, students were engaged in activities to explore the five aspects of Total Defence, namely Military Defence, Civil Defence, Economic Defence, Social Defence and Psychological Defence. Students will learn that despite their age, their participation in Total Defence is important and everyone can and should play a part.
