Art Pieces of NorthLight School students

MN09/001 (poster sized), from S$200

A highlight of Mensa Singapore's 20th anniversary Gala Dinner is its community outreach programme. Mensa Singapore is working with NorthLight School (NLS) which takes in students who have repeatedly failed their PSLE (elementary school exams) and prepares them for lifelong learning and employability so the students can make positive contributions to the community.

I was at NLS to take photos of the students' art work which will be for sale at the dinner to raise funds for its needy students.

A class of students were having their Food Preparation and Service Course. They rose to greet us as we entered the room. In this course, they learn basic food preparation, F&B service, house-keeping and customer servicing skills relevant to the hospitality industry.

The students are encouraged to do community service like painting, fix light bulbs and doing minor repair works for an elderly activity centre nearby.

Underprivileged students formed the bulk of the intake each year. Each needy student needs an average of S$400 per year in assistance.

If you are moved by the mission, you can do your part to contribute to the students’ assistance fund. Your contribution will go into providing the meal coupons, transport allowance and school uniform to the needy students.
