Survey Respondents Say No To Segregation At NS Camps
The study involved 44,000 respondents comprising NS trainees, parents, trainers and camp staff, he told reporters after chairing the MLKN meeting here today.
Lee said the council decided that the segregation proposal was not practical as the main aim of the NS programme was to create understanding between gender and race.
"It won't be a good move as it won't help to bring about better understanding between male and female. We have to get boys to respect the girls and girls to respect the boys," he added.
Lee also said that 30,516 trainees would be moving to their respective training camps starting June 16.
He added that MLKN was in discussion with the Health Ministry to station 240 medical assistants, 160 nurses and 50 ambulances at the camps.
