Celebrating Henderson Centre's Successes
The Society held its annual Graduation Party at Village Hotel Changi on 9 December 2017, celebrating the achievements of the students from Student Care Centre (Henderson).
Seven students who had successfully completed their Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE) in 2017 received certificates for graduating from the Centre’s after school care service.
Top honours went to Rasheeqa, who had been with the centre for close to five years. She obtained an aggregate score of 187, the highest among the seven graduating students.
She carries with her fond memories of both learning and fun, she said, adding: “Thank you, teachers, friends and Aunty for teaching me, playing with me, and encouraging me whenever I needed help.”
About 90 children and their family members, along with volunteers and staff, attended the ceremony, during which other awards were also presented, including Most Improved and Best Behaviour. Each awardee received a trophy, certificate and gift vouchers.
More than half the students at the Centre improved their grades between their mid-year and year-end exams.
Following the prize presentation, guests were treated to a carnival filled with food, games, and even a magic show. Each child also received a backpack goodie bag filled with snacks.
Special thanks to our volunteers for helping out with the logistics, as well as to Far East Organization and Village Hotel Changi which sponsored the event.
