The Halal Travel Podcast | SIDETALK #8 | What We Should Have Learnt in School

By Halal Trip | 15, Jun, 2021

In this episode, we talk about the things we wish we learned in school. Is there a step-by-step guide on how to adult?? These are a few of our not-so-favorite things when it comes to adulting. We thought it would be a good consideration for schools to offer dummy courses on adulting 101. We know we'd definitely sign up!


What to Listen For

  • Adulting Skills - What is CPF? PSEA?
  • Social Studies
  • When is the right time to teach these things?
  • Financial Literacy
  • Practicing due diligence even though there are many financial advisors out there
  • Something that might not be taught at University
  • Secondary school or early tertiary education
  • It could be something similar to career development
  • Work-study programs or other alternatives to the traditional paths like ITE, Polytechnic, and JC
  • "Grades are important but it will not dictate your future"
  • To encourage more skills outside of the curriculum
  • Banding and streams and PSLE scoring system difference between the generations
  • "Achievement level"
  • Reactions to their PSLE scores
