Views sought on moral, national education

May 05, 2011
The Curriculum Development Council’s Moral & National Education Ad Hoc Committee has proposed making "moral and national education" a subject for Primary 1 to Secondary 6 students.
The suggestion was made after the committee reviewed the current moral and civic education framework for schools. A consultation on the curriculum and implementation details will run until the end of August.
The committee’s chairman Prof Lee Chack-fan today said moral and national education provides students with systematic learning objectives, focusing on developing positive values and attitudes to enhance their personal and national qualities.
“It also facilitates students' identity-building under different domains, namely family, society, the nation and the world, and fosters their sense of commitment and contribution towards these respective domains."
Comments are welcome for the further refinement of the curriculum. The curriculum guide on the subject, expected to be finalised by the committee in early 2012, will be submitted to the Curriculum Development Council for its final approval.
Eight consultation seminars, the first starting today, will be organised for heads, deputy heads and teachers of secondary and primary schools. Click here for details.
