We wrapped up our school term for the year with two Fun Days for our EIP & SAP students and their families. Our students and their siblings played different stationed games such as water balloons & bubbles play, golf, ball darts etc. Each family also brought different types of snacks/meals to share with each other at the YAP kitchen. Our YAP trainees also operated their café with nasi lemak, jellies, toasts and soya bean milk.

Our students and trainees also exchanged Christmas gifts with one another, and their families had an opportunity to bond and get to know each other over dinner.
