The Traffic Police (TP) and the Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC), supported by the Ministry of Education (MOE), commemorated the 65th anniversary of the Singapore Traffic Games (STG) on Friday, 10 November 2023, at the Road Safety Community Park. Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister for Communications and Information & Second Minister for Home Affairs, attended the event as the Guest of Honour. About 300 students and 100 guests attended the event. Please refer to Annex A for the photographs of the event.
A total of 26 primary schools competed in the STG qualifying rounds, which took place between 10 and 13 July 2023. Of the 26 participating schools, 15 primary schools progressed to the finals on 10 November 2023. Elias Park Primary School emerged as the champion with the lowest number of accumulated demerits points and was awarded the STG Challenge Trophy. For the list of the top 10 winning schools, please refer to Annex B.
Since 1958, the STG has been a platform to educate students on road safety rules and etiquette.
To commemorate the 65th anniversary of the STG, TP, SRSC, and MOE have produced a special stamp pack for stakeholders and partners who have contributed significantly to the Games. This stamp pack features photographs of four generations of students participating in the STG, and chronicles various milestones in the Games’ history. Please refer to Annex C for the image of the stamp pack.
Chairman of the Singapore Road Safety Council, Mr Bernard Tay said, “It is important for road safety education to start with our young children so that it shapes the children into responsible road users when they grow up. The children will be able to engage their hearts and minds through interactive activities at the annual STG, to learn the importance of road safety and to be responsible road users. This year, we have also produced a special Stamp Presentation Pack to commemorate the STG’s 65th anniversary. These stamps, featuring the history of the STG, will serve as a meaningful memento of STG’s achievement in raising road safety awareness over the years.”
Commander of Traffic Police, Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police Daniel Tan said, “STG educates children on road safety rules and etiquette through role-playing. Its popularity among children over the past 65 years is proof that STG remains relevant in educating the young. Road safety is a shared responsibility. I would like to urge all road users to be good role models for our young road users by exercising patience and graciousness. Likewise, our young road users are also encouraged to continue with good road safety habits throughout their life.”
STG will continue to be part of TP’s continuous education and engagement efforts to keep Singapore’s roads safe for all.
