2.The theme of the MOE ExCEL Fest 2014 is “Valuing Every Child, Learning for Life”. This is in line with the Ministry of Education’s student-centric focus and equips every child with a broad and deep foundation for a lifelong journey of learning.

3.Parents and interested members of the public will be offered a total of 70 Sharing Sessions and 35 Seminars by leading educators and renowned practitioners on various educational and parenting topics. Topics will range from helping your child to empathise with others to making real world connections in the learning of mathematics. Online registration for these free public sharing sessions and seminars taking place on 12 April is now open on a first-come-first-served basis at the ExCEL Fest website. Activities on 11 April are for teachers and staff of the Ministry of Education.

4.Visitors to the event can also look forward to 65 exhibits put up by our schools and MOE HQ. Schools will showcase their creative efforts to help develop values, skills and knowledge in our children that provide a strong foundation and prepare them for the future. Among others, exhibits will demonstrate how interdisciplinary learning can go beyond the classroom to expose our children to a greater breadth of knowledge, and how traits of a happy child and good moral character can be developed through Character and Citizenship Education lessons.
