Minister for Education Chan Chun Sing is now on TikTok.
“Let’s see how my 2023 goes,” he posted this Tuesday (Jan 2) in a video kickstarting the New Year (and his channel).
We at Petir.sg reckon it’ll be busy: One of the two videos currently up does show that Minister Chan visited 55 schools and their students in 2022.
That’s more than one school a week (schools don’t have classes all year!).
A montage of Minister Chan tinkering with a DIY LEGO robot, doing band baton drills, setting up an IV drip and trying out VR goggles, alongside students of various ages everywhere across Singapore.
“Something new this year”
Minister Chan’s also all in with the new school year, like the second video on Jan 3 shows.
He visited Ang Mo Kio Primary School that day, spending time with Parent Support Group members and student councillors for this big event (remember your first time at school?) for the little ones.
“How do you feel about being on TikTok?,” he was asked later at the school canteen.
“Well, just like the P1s and the K1s, I’m going to learn something new this year,” replied Minister Chan.
(As well as see bits of his personal life, like his morning runs for keeping in shape.)
And for more TikTok content, here’re the channels for Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong, Minister for Law and Home Affairs K Shanmugam (it’s grown since we last checked in), Minister for Health Ong Ye Kung and Minister for Information Josephine Teo.
They’re all great ways to catch up, quickly and candidly, on what the Party’s up to. Enjoy!
