The SDP welcomes the Ministry of Education's (MOE's) decision to have students clean their school premises. The move will help to instill a sense of responsibility in students for the environment. However, the SDP would like the MOE to come up with guidelines on what the students are and are not required to perform. We also repeat our call for the reduction of the school syllabus to enable students greater opportunity to engage in collaborative and interactive activities that will facilitate creative learning. Already, students are given a tremendous amount of classroom work. On top of this, they have to undertake Co-Curricular Activities which add to their already full day causing many of them to return home late in the day. Students should not be burdened with an even more strenuous day.
