New forum equips teachers with skills to incorporate China into lessons

A new resource package will be made available for teachers to help them incorporate information about China into their lessons.

This was launched at the first China-Quotient Teachers' Forum held at Pioneer Junior College on Wednesday. Jointly organised by Pioneer Junior College and networking group Business China, the forum helps teachers, including those who do not speak Mandarin, to understand China's rise and its relevance to Singapore.

Education Minister Heng Swee Keat was the guest of honour at the event along with about 600 other guests including American investor Jim Rogers and Business China chief executive Low Yen Ling.
