Making the Case for Gracious Living
Children at our Student Care Centre (Henderson) got a lesson in graciousness from author Mr Kevin Foo, who gave a talk at the Centre on 8 March.
The writer behind 'Have we lost it? Gracious students' and 'Have we lost it? Gracious Living' shared on the importance of considering the feelings of others and in offering help when it is needed. He also gave the children ideas on what they could do to make Singapore a more gracious society.
Mr Foo donated 25 copies of each book to the Centre, and the children took turns to read passages from the books out loud, making them even more interested in putting his suggestions into practice.
Mr Foo, who is on a mission to help Singapore evolve into a more gracious society, gives similar talks on graciousness at various primary schools in Singapore.
