The implementation of the “DreamStarter Programme”

DreamStarter is an initiative that encourages primary school students to pursue their dreams. Students are encouraged to come up with original and creative ideas and work on them throughout the school year. They can put their projects on DreamStarter platform to gather support from the community by raising awareness, mentoring, crowdfunding and crowdsourcing support. While doing so, it is hoped that students can be equipped with various skill sets that are important to their future development through the experiential learning process, including having a positive mindset towards themselves and the future, being able to cope with stress and difficulties and solve problems independently. At the same time, the school aims to empower students with the vision and responsibility to bring positive impact to the people in the community. All projects under the programme aim to bring real changes to the community through innovative solutions from various perspectives including social, environmental, technology and so on and so forth.
