During the March Holidays, students at Epworth Student Care Centre at ACS(P) participated in various enrichment activities as well as a Character Development Programmes (CDP). These programmes allowed the students to use their creativity and expand their knowledge.
The CDP conducted taught the students the importance of being mindful of others’ feelings. They learnt that they can be more sensitive by observing facial expressions, noticing the tone of voice and listening to others.
Fun With Science
The activity, “Diving Into Health” taught the students how science has progressed in the medical field. Students learnt how to better understand their bodies and the importance of being mindful of what they eat.
Besides this, students got to participate in fun activities where they used glow-in-the-dark powder and ultraviolet lights to understand how easily germs spread.
Fun With Abstract Art
The activity, “Paint Popsicles” taught the students more about the concept of abstract art. Students learnt about colour theory, and had the chance to apply it.
The end result was their very own masterpiece, as they brought it home with a big smile on their faces!
Team Building Day
Team Building Day was a highlight for the students. The activities planned taught them about the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork. The students had lots of fun as they worked together in their teams to overcome the challenges together.
The End of A Term
Trading day is a day where the teachers reward the students for their good behaviors based on the values they have learnt. Throughout the term, students will receive tokens whenever they display good behaviors.
At the end of Term 1, the students traded their tokens they had accumulated, for prizes such as Marvel stationery, toys and snacks.
It was a fulfilling and exciting Term 1. We truly believe that 2022 is going to be our best year yet!
