Ongoing Renewal of the School Curriculum

 

 

Task Force on Review of School Curriculum

The Task Force on Review of School Curriculum was set up in November 2017 to holistically review the primary and secondary curricula.

During the course of the review, the Task Force gathered essential information, met with different stakeholders, and deliberated thoroughly the issues pertaining to optimising the implementation of the school curriculum. Having mapped out the six directions of initial recommendations, the Task Force conducted a 3-month public consultation between late June and mid-October 2019.

In September 2020, the Task Force firmed up its directional recommendations, which included reinforcing the importance of whole-person development, according higher priority to values education, creating space and catering for learner diversity, further promoting Applied Learning, enhancing the flexibility in university admissions, and strengthening STEM education. The Task Force submitted its final report to the Government on 22 September 2020. The related documents can be downloaded at the following links:
