Need for sponsors

NEWS can mean different things to different people. For example, a shopping-cum-business centre is proposed in your neighbourhood.

One person may view this positively because many jobs will be created, while another will worry about the centre's impact on the environment.

Your neighbourhood grocer, on the other hand, will view it as a business threat.

The Star's Newspaper-in-Education (NiE) programme is a tool that bridges the gap between learning and life.

So far, more than 500 schools are buying The Star or have sponsored copies sent to them.

NiE helps students improve reading, writing and thinking skills and encourages them to become involved in their communities and their world.

Thus, for more schools to benefit from the programme, we would like to invite your organisation to sponsor copies of The Star to schools.

A weekly pullout, which includes both an NiE supplement and stuff@school section, is distributed free with The Star exclusively to schools at a discounted price.

As a sponsor, your organisation can help more students improve not only their English, but also Maths and Science – and in the process, have fun while learning.

Help them find out what's going on in the world and expose them to the pleasure and excitement of reading.

Star-NiE teacher and student workshops complement the NiE programme. The workshops are held to brief teachers on how to use the The Star as a teaching tool.

Our trainers focus on how to make learning a rewarding experience for students, while providing hands-on activities for the participants.

For details, call The Star’s customer care unit at 03-7967 1777, from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm.
