Activities for past few months include:

Dentist Visit from 22/04/19 to 23/04/19

A team comprising of dentists and nurses from Klinik Pergigian Klebang came for their annual dental visit to our centre. They taught parents and students on ways they could take care of their teeth as well as did a demonstration on how to brush teeth properly (on a teeth model). Students too get to practice their teeth brushing skills after the demonstration by the team. The students were mostly calm and brave when it was their turn for the dental checkups as teachers, nurses and their parents were there by their sides to assure them.

Parents Support Group on 11/05/19

Our guest speaker for the day was Mr Benson Song from BeReady Occupational Therapy Centre, Melaka. He shared on the topic “Let’s prepare a Sensory Diet for your kids” where he explained the different types of sensory needs for respective groups of children as well as the strategies and activities that we could use to help them. There was also an interactive session whereby participants of the group got to ask questions as well as shared their thoughts/views.

YAP Outing on 15/05/19

Our trainees and their trainers had an outing to the bowling centre at Mahkota Parade Melaka. They had a fun time 'challenging' each other during the game and most certainly enjoyed the outing with lots of laughter and cheers.

Young Adults Social Club

We started a social club for our young adults on 19/05/19 and they had their first get together to a bun baking class at Master Chef Baking and Culinary Studio, Melaka. Chef Fun and Chef TJ did a good job teaching and guiding our trainees and their parents during the baking session and the young adults definitely looked forward to eat those buns which they had baked after the class!

Our trainees from our Young Adults Program (YAP) continued with their catering work as well as operating their café for visitors. We are truly grateful for their support to our young adults’ work.
