Tham, E., & D’Rozario, V. (1988, July 4-8). Pastoral care in Singapore schools: Its concept and practice. Paper presented at the 7th Biennial Conference-Workshop of the Association of Psychological and Educational Counsellors of Asia (APECA), Bangkok, Thailand.
Abstract: 
This joint conceptual paper describes the introduction of a system of care for students in Singapore schools. Whilst encouraging academic excellence in schools, the government of Singapore has emphasised the need to not only excel academically but to develop each child to his fullest potential in the personal, social and vocational realms. This paper will trace the history of pastoral care in the United Kingdom where it originated and outline the educational policy to implement it in Singapore. A conceptual framework for a threefold approach to pastoral care in Singapore schools will be outlined. In addition, this paper .also describes the role of the teacher in the pastoral system, the skills required by teachers to be effective care-givers, and the training planned for and being conducted for teachers to prepare them for their role in the pastoral system. Innovative ways of approaching pastoral care within and outside the school curriculum will be suggested. Examples of pastoral curriculums in some Singapore schools that are currently piloting the pastoral programme will be
included in the paper.
