PETALING JAYA: Brighter and breezier, the monthly Star-NiE (Newspaper-in-Education) pullout is now available to schools on the third Tuesday of each month instead of every last Wednesday.
With the pullout available in schools on a Tuesday beginning this month, schools would have an additional day that week to use it in the classroom. The change of publication day also allows for more colour pages in the supplement.
The characteristic fun-to-do NiE activities has been “redesigned” and pegged according to Levels 1, 2 and 3 to cater for the different age groups in schools.
Level 1 is recommended for primary level pupils while Levels 2 and 3 are for lower secondary and upper secondary school students respectively.
The supplement will also have a more interesting and colourful layout while the centrespread will feature an informative and colourful poster.
Kicking off this year’s pullouts is Technology rocks!
For the month of March, there will be a special bumper issue full of activities to be carried out in conjunction with the English Language Week. The bumper issue – to cater for schools which usually hold their language week in March or April – will be published in the second Tuesday because the third Tuesday falls during the school break.
As a bonus, schools which buy the bumper issue in bulk will be given a special package comprising a Star-NiE kit with prizes for school-based contests.
To order The Star for NiE lessons, contact Customer Care Unit at 03-79671777.
