COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
Project LiterARTcy

Team Member (2018)

In collaboration with the Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA), my team and I conceptualised Project LiterARTcy, striving to engage children in learning through literacy, art, music & movement!

Project LiterARTcy was implemented on 24th June 2018 at the Narpani Community Carnival. We planned and conducted two sequential activities, Coloured Vision where children use toilet rolls to create binoculars with coloured lenses and Bear Hunt, which consist of a story-telling session and a word puzzle activity. The children were given take-home kits containing sets of puzzles for them to use at home!

Volunteer (2017- 2019)

Weekly tutoring session for children aged 6-12 from underprivileged families in the subjects of Mathematics and English. 

Being a TYA volunteer, I gained exposure in working with children of varying abilities and learnt to effectively adapt my teaching to suit each child and maximise their academic potential. I was also able to apply behaviour management strategies learnt so as to manage and motivate the children in their learning.

I was also able to build rapport with the children through our weekly interactions during the playtime after the tutoring session.

One Child One Skill (7th run)

Volunteer (2017)

An 8-week programme where I got to interact with a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My partner and I guided him in his piano playing and taught him how to solve Sudoku puzzles. 

We initially faced difficulty in engaging and communicating with the child but after patiently trying out a myriad of strategies, we were able to adapt to the child's needs and help him to improve.

From this experience, I gained a better understanding of autism and explored different teaching methods. It honed my skills in working with atypical children and strengthened my traits of being adaptable, patient and empathetic.
