Themed “Honouring the Invisible People of Singapore”, the Honour Learning Journey is a 1.5-hour programme for secondary schools with a proven ability to engage and inspire youth through the medium of film, by sparking conversations and reflections on character, citizenship and values.

Hosted by Ngee Ann Polytechnic and facilitated by highly effective trainers from Halogen Foundation, each session takes place in an auditorium and can accommodate up to 250 students, plus accompanying teachers.

Highly rated by both students and educators alike, the programme features a slate of 4-5 short films, followed by a time of reflection and takeaways.

The films, created by young filmmakers themselves, feature a mix of both fictional short films and real-life documentaries, which exemplify the value of honour through character traits such as:

  • Integrity and trust
  • Service and sacrifice
  • Thrift and hard work
  • Dignity and humanity
  • Relational integrity and connection
  • Authenticity and commitment
  • Resilience and perseverance
  • Leadership, social responsibility and action for the greater good.

Whether it is for a general cohort, or a community of student leaders, the Honour Learning Journey will leave your students inspired and enriched, rather than feeling ‘lectured’ at. It’s time to innovate values education through the power of film!

WHAT EDUCATORS SAY

The films were very good and we enjoyed watching them. They are very good CCE resources in helping us teachers inculcate values like perseverance, passion and care for the underprivileged. Once again, thank you for making such wonderful short films which really help us teach our kids about character education and values.

It's a very good programme to teach our students the value of Honour. The students were engaged throughout the programme.

Ms Chew Ting ChingHead of Department (Character & Citizenship Education), Assumption English School

We are glad to have the opportunity to expose our students to various forms of educational platforms that imbue values education in a non-didactic way. We are also glad to partner your organisation and Ngee Ann Polytechnic in this meaningful endeavour to honour the ‘Invisible People of Singapore’. Once again, thank you for the partnership opportunity!

It was an afternoon well-spent as the films (and the facilitator) led us to think about how we honour our word, our community, our service staff, as well as our parents. Keep up the good work!
