Enrichment classes on coding for all upper primary pupils next year

SINGAPORE – All upper primary pupils will have coding classes from next year, as part of the Government’s goal to develop a healthy pipeline of tech talent for the digital economy.

Conducted by the Education Ministry and Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), the 10-hour enrichment programme will be piloted this year at some schools for pupils after their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), before being rolled out to all primary schools by 2020.

Code For Fun (CFF) will seek to develop an appreciation of core computational thinking and coding concepts in pupils, through simple visual programming-based lessons.

This was one of several key announcements made by Minister for Communications and Information S. Iswaran at the ministry’s workplan seminar, which centred around building a safe and inclusive digital society for Singapore that leaves no one behind.
