March to April 2008
Went on a community service learning trip to Hanoi, Vietnam as volunteers with a group of year 1 and 2 students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. My objective for this trip is to coach children in simple English and facilitate game activities for them. In this trip, I have seen the difference of their school setting from that of Singapore Childcare Centers. The things that are unique in the classroom are the learning materials, learning corners as well as a spiral staircase created inside the classroom.
2006 to present
Worked at Spastic Children's Association of Singapore Cerebral Palsy Center and M.I.N.D.S home as a volunteer. During my presence at these places, I had the opportunity to work with children with exceptional needs. I took care of the children, for example played with them, bathed, changed and fed them. It was an enriching and wonderful experience to be with these kids. They are very special in my heart.
I was appointed as a module representative in the class. My responsibilities were to mark the attendance of the class and to ensure that my classmates were able to obtain the required course materials during lesson time. It was fun as I had the opportunity to interact with lecturers, guest speakers and my peers.
Year 2005 - 2006
I was appointed as a class treasurer for a period of two years. My duties were to collect student funds, photocopied course notes and purchased items related to the course modules. I would say that this job was challenging as I had to balance the accounting book as well as other responsibilities at hand.
