FY 2010-2011

Temasek Cares - Programme to Engage Parents of At-risk Students
Helping at-risk students to build familial bonds
Partner: Northlight School

Many students from NLS come from families with challenging home environments.  This puts them at risk of absenteeism from school and other behavioural problems.  The programme by Temasek Cares enables the school to organize activities such as overnight camps and workshops that engage parents in the education and development of their children. Such activities contribute to building familial bonds and help students to overcome difficulties they face at home.

Temasek Cares - Programme to Support Students with Learning Needs
Helping NLS students with learning needs to cope with their curriculum
Partner: Northlight School

The programme aims to provide more support for students with learning difficulties. Approximately 20% of NLS students have some form of learning needs. Most of the students are high-functioning and with some intervention, are able to compensate cognitively and access the school's curriculum.

The pilot programme allows NLS to engage specialists such as occupational and speech therapists to assess the students and provide needed therapy. Teachers will be able to consult with industry experts in cases where the students have autism-spectrum or other developmental disorders. The specialists and experts will complement the school's team of counsellors, literacy coaches and educational psychologist.

Partner: Northlight School

NLS actively supports its graduates to make the transition to new academic or work environments. Support for graduates includes remedial coaching or skills training to increase employability. The programme by Temasek Cares enables the school to step up its support for graduates of the school.
