Together, we have discussed about the design of four new programs, which are in-service school-based teacher training, school management training, children with special need and parent empowerment. We have all agreed that these programs would greatly benefit our students, through improving management style and the teaching quality, strengthening families and allocating resources for children with special needs. Our goal is to launch the programs as efficient as we could.
