Another exciting 3 months have passed and highlights of events in Wings for the quarter include:
Visit to Melaka Tropical Fruit Farm in June '13
This activity is opened to all programmes (ie EIP, SAP & YAP) and the children & trainees had a fun time visiting the fruit orchard, sampling some fruits as well as getting a tram ride around the farm. It was a great time of bonding for the students & trainees with their families & Wings' staff.
Parents Support Group in June '13
Our chairman, Mr Chee Kong Chi shared with our students' & trainees' families about his experiences and journey with his young adult son who has learning difficulties. It was also a time where parents too shared about their experiences and methods they used in helping their children.
Sharing in Hospital Pakar Sultanah Fatimah, Muar in June '13
We were given an opportunity by the hospital to share about our work in Wings Melaka in conjunction to their Angel Day's event.
Coffee Session in July'13
It was in a more casual setting where parents and Wings' staff gathered and had dinner together in our YAP kitchen. Our trainees also specially baked some cupcakes for the occasion!
Starting from July '13, we have a counsellor who visits our centre every week providing counselling services & therapies for our students/trainees' families as well as for Wings' staff. We also work closely with our visiting consultants who continuously give us insights in improving our programmes and services.
As of July '13, we have a total of 39 students: 22 in EIP, 12 in SAP & 5 in YAP. We are especially grateful and blessed by the continuous support that you have renderred for our work here in Wings and we hope to reach out to more families with children with learning needs.
