Sunbeam Place celebrated our nation’s 57th birthday by organising a ‘National Day Masterchef’ event on 10 Aug'22!

Residents went against each other to prepare, cook, and present a local dish, and were judged based on local dish representation, nutritional value, presentation and taste.

Everyone left the event in good spirits and a full belly!
Our heartiest congratulations to our board member, Ms Tan Khiaw Ngoh for being conferred the Public Service Medal for this year’s National Day Awards! Ms Tan started volunteering with Singapore Children’s Society in 1999; today she is the Chairperson of the Social Work Service Standing Committee and the Chairperson of the Audit and Risk Committee.

Under Ms Tan’s stewardship, we took up the challenge to pilot the Appropriate Adult Scheme for Young Suspects and we continue to be the agency supporting the scheme today.

In her various capacities such as the Honorary Treasurer, Honorary Secretary and Chairperson of the Audit and Risk Committee, Ms Tan has enabled Children’s Society to improve its corporate governance and accountability and to identify and manage risks faced by the organisation strategically.

On behalf of all our staff and beneficiaries, thank you Ms Tan, for your dedication and contribution!

Ever heard young children say “Eeee, shame, shame!” when they hear about the topic of private body parts? Children take on this embarrassment when they sense that their own parents, teachers and caregivers are not open to talking about body safety and respecting each other’s private body parts.

In this episode of #ParenTIPS, our guest speakers, Ms Joanne Low, Principal from Sengkang Methodist Preschool, and Ms Eugenie Diepenhorst, Vice Principal from Cherie Hearts at Charlton, share their heartfelt experiences in teaching young children how to keep themselves safe from sexual abuse. Hear how their schools supported their teachers and engaged parents to be comfortable with talking about #bodysafety.

Tune in to the podcast via Anchor or Spotify.

All proceeds from this event will go towards supporting a diverse range of services and programmes to support our beneficiaries.

One such programme is the Bully-Free Programme. Started in 2004, it addresses the issue of school bullying and its impact on those involved.

The programme aims to promote a safe and supportive culture in schools with a zero tolerance stand towards bullying. Our work also aims to raise awareness on the topic among children, youth, parents, teachers and counsellors through talks, workshops, camps etc.

Are you a mother with a child in Primary 4 in a local school? If so, we would like to invite you and your child to participate in a parenting research study. This study will take place over approximately one year, with three rounds of data collection roughly six months apart. All sessions will be conducted either in your home or at Yale-NUS College, and will take about 1.5h. The child should have no known developmental delays, and mother and child both have to understand English to be eligible for participation.

Parents will receive an individualised report about their child’s behaviours and vocabulary skills.

To find out more details or indicate your interest, please visit here or contact the study team at yncbx157@nus.edu.sg.
Three logo changes later, we are here to give you an exclusive story behind the evolution of our logo.
