Punjab govt to send 36 school principals to Singapore for training

Teachers from 36 Punjab government schools will leave for Singapore on February 4 to attend a training programme, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann said on Thursday.

They will take part in a professional teachers’ training seminar in Singapore from February 6-10, the chief minister said according to an official statement.

The 36 principals will return on February 11.

Thousands of students across the state will benefit from this step as these principals will share their experience with their colleagues and students which “will help in further upscaling the expertise and professional ability of the teachers to impart quality education to students”, Mann said. 

Mann believes that this step would prove to be a milestone in reforming the state’s education system. With these efforts, Punjab will soon become a frontrunner state in education, the chief minister added.
