We were honoured to have our Mr Chairman Dato Chee Kong Chi legal firm M/s Chee Siah Le Kee & partners' team to kick start the year 2021 with a massive spring cleaning (Gotong Royong in Bahasa Malaysia) on 3/1/2021. This is a CSR project in conjunction and celebration of the firm's 40th Anniversary and it was a joint effort among the business partners, staff and wings team on a voluntary basis. It was fun yet meaningful and fulfilling event for all to prepare for school reopen on 11/1/2021.

With much joy, we started the physical lesson starting 11/1/2021 and unfortunately was ordered to closed again on 13/1/2021 due to the re-announcement of Movement Control Order (MCO) by the Government of Malaysia once again. It has been continously extended till 18/2/2021 and therefore the centre has been closed since then till further notice.

Despite all the challenges such as sensory issues, proper and conducive learning atmosphere, availability of teaching tools and resources,  skills, availability of IT gadgets and savviness and etc, we are force to work in a very constraints and limited condition without much choices. Nevertheless, with the corporation, determination and diligent of all, we are progressing well and things are getting stable.

To run our programmes in the season of Covid 19 is definitely challenging to all parties concerned include management, teachers, students as well as parents. However, during such a crisis, we continue to soar beneath the wings of God and sail through the hardy and stormy condition. We are grateful to experience "when the going gets tough, the tough get going" having put in a situation with many constraints such as lacking manpower, extraordinary operational compliance requirement, challenging financial standing for both parents and our organisation affected by covid 19 economically and etc. 

Moving from Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) to Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) imposed by Malaysia Government till 31/12/2020 Nationwide, we are gradually restoring our operation back to the normal pace during this reporting period. Nevertheless, many other states in Malaysia such as Sabah, Kedah, Penang and Selangor are going through the 3rd wave of the said pandemic recently and we do not know what to expect next but to carry on our mission with full alert and compliance.

Reportedly there were some dropouts in our programme due to personnel reasons and constraints. These are easily filled and replaced by new students as the demands are always greater than the supply in our field. The same challenges happened to the teaching team and vacancies were filled on time by new responsible and dedicated young people.

Workshops, parents support group meetings were temporarily suspended due to obvious reason.

The Centre was lockdown due to the COVID pandemic from 18/3/2020 till 9/6/2020. During the lockdown, we could only conduct virtual lessons with students who are capable of doing online lessons from home. More than 50% of the Early Intervention Program and 5% of School-aged program students were unable to follow through our virtual lessons due to resources constraints.

Staff resumed work starting 10/6/2020 with the announcement of Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) by the government but not students. There were much cleaning and sanitising work done by staff as per SOP requirement. Thereafter, we continue on with online lessons for both Early Intervention Program and School-Aged Program for the month of June 2020.

We are hopeful to resume physical lessons in July 2020.

Updates of our major events and happening from December 2019 till 17 February 2020 : -

  1. Annual graduation party hosted by our all-time faithful sponsor, ie The Hatten Hotel Melaka, organised on 27-11-2019 to officially send-off 7 graduated students for the year 2019.
  2. We had planned and successfully set up an Occupational Therapy room to meet the sensory needs of our students during our final term break in December 2019. The OT facilities are meant to add value to both our Early Intervention and School Age Programmes as the ultimate objective of it is to facilitate and enhance the learning efficiency of our students. We are again very thankful for the financial support of some good samaritans to start off with the very basic facilities and hopefully to add on gradually from time to time.
  3. We started our year 2020 with a total of 53 students of which 28 EIP, 18 SAP and  7 YAP with the hope of recruiting more student with the expansion of the teachers. 
  4. The women bible study group who has regularly supported the cafe work of our Young Adult Programme initiated the Chinese New Year Lousang luncheon in our Centre on 12-2-2020.
  5. Moving forward we hope to improve further our service quality with more emphasis on staff training.

Our invited speaker for the event was Ms Ng Lai Thin, Project Officer from the National Early Childhood Intervention Council (NECIC) and she shared on "How to prepare and support your child for school". It was an interactive session where she shared tips and advice to parents and caregivers as they make preparations for their child’s education journey.

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Workshop on 11/10/19 & 12/10/19

This event was organised in partnership with NECIC at Oriental Hospital. The session was conducted by Dr Diana Wee, a consultant clinical psychologist who has experience in supporting adults, children and families on the autism spectrum, both in Malaysia and Australia.

We have a total of 70 participants consisting of Wings Melaka staff, parents/caregivers and service providers. It was an interactive workshop where participants were put into different groups as they discussed personal case studies of their respective child as well as share tips with one another. The aim of the training was to build understanding of the PBS principles, practical skills on behaviour assessments and preventive measures to be taken so as to not escalate the behaviour, but to help manage it.
