What do you deem are the most useful aspects of education which will benefit you when you enter the working world ?
 
Some people say that the aim of education is to produce a well-rounded individual with a desirable character. Others believe that education enables you to learn for yourself, while others view that education is the learning of knowledge and skills to equip a person for employment in society. I hold the view that education should incorporate all of those objectives.

All students are aware that their education prepares them for the working world. Learning languages like English and Chinese Language means preparing myself to communicate better in the working world, both in the spoken and written mediums. A knowledge of technical subjects like Engineering Drawing and science subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Biology is necessary in this world which is increasingly shaped by technological forces. Our educators have wisely included the study of Living Skills for boys like me. I believe this will come in useful as cooking and housekeeping skills are important when I become an adult and establish my new home. Our studies are becoming multi-disciplinary. A knowledge of subjects like History and Geography is useful, not only in providing students with general knowledge but also to understand the sensitivities of other cultures and countries.

Our education system is stressful with examinations, tests, projects and co-curricular activities. An average student needs to be disciplined to undergo and complete these. In the case of my school, teachers have taught us to focus on our goals and realise our objectives. The discipline I acquire and the values I imbibe forgoing present pleasures for future gains will help me in adult life when these character qualities will stand me in good stead.

The new education system is a departure from the old one where there was an undue emphasis on assessment of content in examinations. Students survived on rote learning, regurgitation of facts and learning model answers. The new system encourages critical thinking, communication skills and teamwork.

Hence, students like us are trained to work in teams in projects, do presentations and learn critical thinking skills. This will prepare us for the working world of the future where change is irreversible and we have to constantly learn and relearn.

However, for students like me, education is not confined to academic work. We have co-curricular activities. I help, in the Computer Club and have learned some skills in computers and projectors. These will help me in later life as I intend to go into sales for my career. Then I will need to do presentations. Besides Computer Club activities, I am also a member of the athletic team. When employers view my school record in future, they will be impressed as they know that sportsmen have qualities desired in workers. Sports has enabled me to have a more well-rounded education.

Finally, when I think of my education, I think of the love and concern of my teachers. Their hard work also encourage me. Some teachers are my role models when I step into the adult world.

Hence, these are the aspects of education which I think will be useful for me in adult life.
