SINGAPORE: Twenty—four vice principals from local schools and five senior educators being nurtured to be school principals received their certificates for the Leaders in Education Programme on Wednesday evening.

They received their certificates from Education Minister Heng Swee Keat at the Regent Singapore Hotel.

For the past six months, the principals—in—training have been leading innovations in their attachment schools.

Three outstanding candidates were also recognised, and amongst them was Mr Chen Fook Pang, Vice Principal of North View Secondary School, who received the Lee Kuan Yew Leaders in Education Programme Award.

The programme focuses on innovation and the creation of new knowledge, provoking the participants’ thinking through challenging learning experiences. These include working on a value—adding project in an attachment school, seminars with international experts and an overseas study trip.
