We continue to work conscientiously with key education partners including the Ministry of Education and Early Childhood Development Agency, in the development of relevant programmes with a global focus. Come join us and experience heritage up-close!

The guidebook "Heritage Trails – A Practical Guide to Action" is a useful complement for schools that wish to adopt an existing NHB Heritage Trail or develop their own trail under HTAS. It includes a step-by-step process of conceptualising a Heritage Trail, conducting research as well as sample activities, forms and worksheets from schools who have successfully developed their own Heritage Trail.
