A happy and prosperous #ChineseNewYear to one and all!
How better to welcome the Year of the Dog than with the K-9 Unit from the Singapore Police Force! Patrolling public spaces, sniffing out contraband and guarding our borders, working dogs and their handlers work hard to ensure a safe and enjoyable CNY for all of us.
Interested in adopting a retired police or military dog? The Police K-9 Unit and SAF’s Military Working Dog Unit (MWDU) regularly put up retired working dogs... for adoption. You can call SPF (6314 6043) or MWDU (6424 6623) during office hours to arrange a viewing, and give these deserving dogs a loving home to spend their golden years! – LHL

Lee Hsien Loong shared Singapore Model Parliament's video.
7 mins ·
Parliament is where national issues are debated and policies take shape. Next month, several young Singaporeans will get their chance to try this in the Singapore Model Parliament! They will be playing the roles of MPs from ruling party and opposition, as well as NCMPs and NMPs, to draft, debate and vote on mock Bills.
Singapore Parliamentary debates tend to be less theatrical than in some other countries, which is as it should be. So it is good to see young Singaporeans taking an interest in our legislature and how laws are passed. It certainly helps that for the first time the SMP is being held in Parliament House, for an ‘authentic’ experience.
Speaking of Parliament, they recently launched their Facebook page (Parliament of Singapore). Do give them a Like! – LHL
I hope all students, parents, and teachers had a good first day of school today!
The schooling years are fundamental in shaping children’s development. Pupils l...earn values: determination, self-reliance, teamwork with classmates of different backgrounds, and hopefully a lifelong love for discovering new things. Parents and teachers play important roles in this journey, providing love and support.
May you have an exciting and fruitful school year in 2018! – LHL

The late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew believed that although you can train good company leaders, it doesn't work the same for political leaders. How then, do we get exceptional and passionate political leaders? http://lkyspp.sg/1K5GE3R
Held a Joint Press Conference with President Donald J. Trump this afternoon in the White House’s Rose Garden. Singapore and the US are partners in many areas, b...ut above all we are warm friends, as we have been for 51 years. I expressed my hope that the US will continue engaging the Asia Pacific, and extended an invitation to President Trump to visit us, which he has accepted. Long may our friendship continue! 🇸🇬 🇺🇸 – LHL

Tomorrow, our very own Joanna Dong 董姿彦 will be performing at the 中国新歌声 SING CHINA finals at the iconic Bird's Nest stadium in Beijing. She has done so well and ...come so far, not because she tried to perform like singers in China, but because she sang like a Singaporean artiste, with her own unique character and style. Joanna has already won for Singapore! All the best to Joanna!

Spectacular! Thousands of red carp swim in one line in north China
Thousands of red carp were seen forming a line and circling in one direction in a park lake ...in Taiyuan, north China’s Shanxi province, on June 20, 2017. A citizen who had been living around the park for 10 years claimed that he had never seen such an amazing scene before.

Parliament is the forum for serious discussion on important issues. This Parliament has not shied away from discussing difficult or contentious matters – last N...ovember we had a vigorous debate on changes to the Elected Presidency.
However some sensitive issues of race and religion have no easy or immediate solutions. The best way to make progress on them is quietly, outside the glare of publicity. Championing divisive issues publicly, to pressure the government and win communal votes, will only stir up emotions and damage our multi-racial harmony.
In the debate on “Aspirations of Singapore Women”, WP MP Faisal Manap brought up the tudung issue again. Minister Masagos Zulkifli challenged Mr Faisal and explained why this was unwise. He spoke with courage and conviction.
