In conjunction with MOE’s Innoweek, Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) collaborated with Temasek Polytechnic’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences, in particular, the Early Childhood Education course. Year 1 students from this course volunteered at the gallery tour which was held from 26th to 30th March.
That week, SKM was thrilled to welcome a total of 550 children and 36 teachers to be a part of our team to reinforce the importance of kindness in our precious little ones. It is important that we instil in our young children the necessity of being a kind individual so that we can guide them away from the trap of paramount, which may be prevalent in our kindergarten children.
A gallery tour, along with a story-telling session was conducted. The children were also encouraged to design a ‘Thank You’ card for their parents or loved ones in an art and craft session. The children were zealous and eager to learn about Singa and the kindness cubbies and through the animation series, they were able to identify issues and correct them!
The week may have drawn to an end, but the spirit to spread kindness continues on. Let’s work together to make someone’s day and most importantly, be that ‘hero’ and ‘heroine’ in the eyes of our little ones to model!
