It was reported that a total of 29 candidates received their graduation certificates at the graduation dinner for NIE’s Leaders in Education Programme (LEP). Of the three award winners this year, the report highlighted Mr Suraj Nair Venugopal who received the Academy of Principals Prize for Leadership Learning. The prize was awarded to him for the highest level of learning through a journal to reflect upon his beliefs, values and purposes about leadership, management, teaching and learning, triggered by the diverse learning experiences encountered in LEP. The report noted that through his LEP project which encouraged his students to analyse the issue of graciousness in Singapore, Suraj had shared that the project aims to reinforce that education by book is not enough; students should be an all-rounder and a good citizen.
