Round One

Context 1


Danish- It helps to save space as HDB are made of high rise flats 

Jing Ru- HDB flats are better as more people can get a house as it is saves space ( high rise flats) 

Abraar- There is less land used and remaining land can be used for factories and other purposes and they allow people to bond with their neighbours of other races. 

Keith-He feels that HDB has done a great job at building houses for Singaporeans. 

Jona- It is very realistic and is a good solution for the problem of lack of space in Singapore. It also allows the people to build relationships with one another and encourage racial harmony. 



Question-How does the HDB policy reflect social defence? 

Jing Ru - It helps them to live harmoniously together in the same environment. It can also let us improve relationships with neighbours of other races. 

Keith- The representative quota of homes for the Eurasians, Chinese, Malays and Indians allows them to live together in the same block and communicate with one another. 

Danish- It provides communication between the issues of the different races.

Jona- I think that living together in one block and in one neighbourhood gives the neighbours of different races to communicate with each other and build relationships so that we have the team spirit to help one another in times of an emergency.

  1. It reflects social defence as social means to communicate between people and the HDB policy helps people get closer and bond with other races rather than living in a separate place where there is only a race. With HDB, people can help one another when they needed help.

  2. People who stay in HDBs tend to be more friendly yo their neighbours as they share the same corridor, staircase and lift.

  3. Social defence is essential in times of crisis and is strongly present in places such as HDB estates(sorry for the late post down with fever)

  4. I feel that building HDB is essential as it uses a small land to house many families.

  6. HDB are big enough to hold a family and is cheaper, so those elderly who cannot afford to live in a condominium can stay in a HDB flat
