EDUCATION Minister Heng Swee Keat yesterday urged students here to value the 244-piece commemorative Lego set that has been given to them, as news surfaced that some are trying to sell them online.
"This is such a special and unique keepsake. I encourage all our students to keep this and to treasure this because it will be something very special that they can look back (on) when they grow older," said Mr Heng.
All students, from the primary to tertiary levels - including those in special education schools and madrasahs, as well as primary-level homeschoolers - will get the SG50 gift set from the Ministry of Education. The public can also buy the set after National Day. The price has not been fixed.
The Lego blocks can be used to build Cavenagh Bridge, Changi Control Tower and the Gardens by the Bay's Supertrees.
