CHILDREN’S DAY WITH MINDS
FOCUS Adventure celebrates Children’s Day with MINDS students at Universal Studio Singapore
As part of its corporate social responsibility efforts to support children and youths with special needs, FOCUS Adventure hopes to be a catalyst for growth, development and change for the students.
In collaboration with Towner Gardens School, one of the four special education schools run by the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), FOCUS Adventure brought 20 students to Universal Studios Singapore (USS) on 1st October 2014.
Unlike conventional excursions where companies solely bring the children on tours to various Singapore’s attractions, FOCUS Adventure taps on its expertise in experiential learning to unleash the students’ potential through team challenges (attempting the rides as a group) and photo quizzes, leading to greater self-awareness and self-confidence.
With this project, FOCUS Adventure hopes that it can play a small but significant part to create awareness about Persons With Disability (PWDs); thereby ensuring a greater chance for the students to maximise their potential and become independent individuals who can integrate into the society successfully.
Testimonials from Towner Garden School
Thank you very much for the kind sponsorship. Our students have a terrific time. It has been a hot day and it was really hard on you all to see to their needs. Really appreciate all the lovely goodies bestowed on them.
Our heartfelt thanks to all of u out there!
– Ms Loke, Principal
Our hearfelt thanks for a wondeful day out yesterday. The kids truly enjoyed themselves and also benefitted from learning about teamwork, responsibility as well as navigation. For some of them who have not yet gone to a theme park, just going on the rides was a fun learning experience for them. Thank you so much for giving them this unforgettable opportunity.
Your attention to our safety as well the comfort of the students did not go unoticed by our teachers. In addition you still showered them with gifts (caps, lunch, goodie bags) from your own pockets.
Thanks for making a difference in their lives. Hope you all had as much fun as the students and teachers did yesterday.
On behalf of Michelle and Learning Journey Committee, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
– Lisa, Teacher
