Our annual bursary award programme, dreamPACT!, was back! Over the 2 days during the December school holidays, we awarded $28,000 to 152 students. dreamPACT! started with the vision of helping the low income families with more than just financial aid. It is to be a programme that our students can also discover and develop their dreams and passions. Hence, every year, dreamPACT! has various classes that the students can choose to attend before the award ceremony. This year, we had Martial Arts, Soccer and Speech and Drama, Darts, Dance, and Photography classes lined up for our students.
Another key feature of dreamPACT! is our Parents Programme. We believe strongly in partnering with the parents of our students. This year, we invited Mr Alvin Ong, Director of Pivotal Lifeskills, to equip the parents with the skills needed to communicate and parent their post-millennial children effectively.
Lastly, a huge shout out to DARTSLIVE Singapore for collaborating with us to develop the dreams of our students and imparting to them the spirit of sportsmanship!
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.
