The first Parent Communication and Learning Night of the year took place on 15th March. The emcees for the night were Teacher Ruzanna and Syahmi from Fullerton class. They sparkled throughout the evening, captivating the audience with their words and introductions.
After our Principal’s opening address, new staff and the youth for autism (YFA) interns were formally introduced to parents and caregivers.
The school updates covered 3 areas: one of it was the sharing of an upcoming sensory park which will encompass a fitness corner including a step press, cardio stepper and a chest/back press. Next on the school update was a sharing on the recycling project undertaken by Class Lewis’s students. In keeping with the Earth Day mood, Lewis class, together with class teachers and job coaches, put on a musical skit called ‘Save my world!’ to spread the conservation message. Prior to the performance, parents & caregivers were given an insight to how the teachers taught recycling in Class Lewis, through a video clip.
Following the beautiful skit performance, Art Teacher Kenny Chua summarized the artworks that he had taught the students in Term 1. The craft and art pieces were creative, meaningful, authentic, and individualised to the learning needs of every student. Our students are now more meaningfully engaged during art lessons!
Next Mrs Lai shared snippets from the touching Chinese-Hong Kong film "Ocean Heaven". The film tells an inspiring story about what a terminally ill single father did and goes through to ensure his son’s independence after his death.
Ms Denise Phua rounded up the evening by speaking of World Autism Awareness Day on 2nd April. Many buildings will be lighted up in blue in different ways to raise awareness during the week of 2nd April. She also encouraged our parents and caregivers to show their support for Project Yellow Feet on 7th April at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. It will be an attempt to form the longest chain walk to be recognized under the Singapore Book of Records, all in the name of raising awareness on autism.
