LAUNCH OF EDUNET BOOK ON FRIDAY, 15 AUGUST 2008, 2.30PM AT CONFERENCE ROOM (NIE-1-01-09), NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION, 1 NANYANG WALK, SINGAPORE

This coming Teachers' Day, a group of educators comprising alumni from the National Institute of Education, Singapore, have come together to do something special for the student-teachers at the NIE by presenting them a book entitled "Class Dismissed: Lessons Beyond The Classroom".

Formed in 2007, the group, Edunet, has put together the book which is a compilation of personal accounts solicited from like-minded educators who desire to make a difference in their respective fields of education. The book aims to inspire and re-affirm the student-teachers' decision in taking up teaching as a career.

The book launch will be graced by Mr Loh Ngai Seng, Deputy Secretary (Policy), Ministry of Education.

Some of the contacts of the educators that contributed to the book and the programme for the launch are listed in Annexe A and B respectively.
