Guest Speaker: Mr Viswa Sadasivan
Date: 9 January 2014, Thursday
Venue: Furama Riverfront Hotel
Learning is a life-long process and leaders in the Academy of Principals (Singapore) recognise that our educators have to progress together with the changes in the societies they serve. We are always seeking out the best and most innovative aspects of modern education worldwide for Singapore and its schools.
By providing learning opportunities and engaging our members in continuing education, we believe that our School Leaders will gain insights into the latest thinking and practices from a global perspective, and hence further develop their professional and personal capabilities.
The Academy regularly invites distinguished leaders in education, captains of industry and enterprise as well as well-known local personalities to share their rich experiences and perspectives about what's important for the future, and therefore, by extension, for learning. This year we have the privilege to have Mr Viswa Sadasivan, CEO of Strategic Moves Pte Ltd and also a former Nominated Member of Parliament to have a session with our participants as well as to share his thoughts on education.
It is hoped that through a platform such as the Start of School Year, members will be aware of the latest trends, movements and pedagogies in education and respond to the call of leadership that is needed to keep our schools relevant
