Invitation to the Philosophy For Children (P4C) Symposium 2016
Singapore Teachers' Union (STU) is proud to invite you and your colleagues to our Philosophy For Children (P4C) Symposium held in Singapore on the 6th & 7th June 2016 as part of our union’s 70th anniversary.
This symposium on P4C is aligned to our schools' Character & Citizenship Education in inculcating the right values, building social and emotional competencies in our children through effective questioning and reflection, among others.
The Guest-of-Honour is our Acting Minister for Education (Schools), Mr Ng Chee Meng.
We have invited renowned P4C guest speakers from abroad and locally to share with us on the Teaching of Philosophy in schools in developing good individuals and caring citizens in this fast changing globalised world. In addition, educators from our local schools will also be sharing on how they have effectively integrated P4C into their curricula.
This programme is supported bythe Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP). NTUC/STU members will be able to enjoy up to 50% funding. Information on UTAP funding is available via http://skillsupgrade.ntuc.org.sg.
We have enclosed detailed information on the P4C Symposium programme and registration form for your perusal. Feel free to contact my colleague, Ms Tay Kim Swan or me at 6299 3936 if you have any further queries.
We look forward to having you join us at this meaningful symposium with STU.
