hey ocinara!

In collaboration with National Heritage Board, our primary learners had the chance to learn how to play the ocinara. The ocinara is a mini flute with 4 holes which makes it slightly easier for children to learn.

 

By the second session, our young learners were able to play a few classical nursey rhymes such as “Mary had a little lamb” and “Little Bee”.

 

Although learning a new instrument over zoom was challenging, our learners tried their best and did not give up. They learned to persevere and help each other for a fruitful experience. We would like to thank NHB for providing the instructor and all the materials for our beneficiaries. 

christmas special - woodchip & canvas painting

This Christmas, we organized a Christmas special for Loving Heart’s primary school learners. The younger learners tried their hand at woodchip painting for the first time. Together with the help of the instructors, they outlined their drawings and painted over a real woodchip.

 

The older learners got the opportunity to try a real canvas painting. They painted over a canvas and got a chance to experience a day of being an artist. Our learners were happy and pleased with their final artwork. Some of the final art pieces were used as designs for the Loving Heart's Christmas cards this year.  

loving heart's free tuition achievement award

This year, our annual Free Tuition Achievement Awards was postponed due to Covid-19. Nonetheless we wanted to honor students for the efforts and their academic achievement in 2019.

 

As such, we held a mini prize giving ceremony for our students, where they collected their awards in staggered timings. Students were awarded for their academic achievement and improvement in English, Math & Science.

 

Our highest achievers received CapitaLand mall vouchers up to $100. The awards were given out by our Board Members. Through honoring students, we hope that they remain motivated to continue their academic excellence.

This year, in collaboration with Loving Heart, primary school students were awarded $120 cash with $40 vouchers and secondary school students were awarded $150 cash with $60 vouchers. 

 

The event was kindly graced by our Advisors, Mr Shawn Huang & Mr Xie Yao Quan. A total of 35 students from Jurong benefitted from the bursary awards.

house of angklung

During the September holidays, our beneficiaries got to try their hand at Angklung. Angklung is a traditional Indonesian musical instrument that is simple for children of younger ages to learn.

 

Instructor Mr Na’aim taught our beneficiaries to listen and identify musical notes. They also learned to coordinate with each other and play a full song on beat. Not only was learning the Angklung fun, our beneficiaries got a chance to experience playing music together as a group. 

heritage tour & "ready-for-school' shopping trip

For two consecutive weeks, students from Loving Heart's Tuition Programme and PCF Centres in Jurong GRC were invited to join the Heritage Tour & "Ready-for-school" shopping trip. They learned about cultural origins from the Malay and Indian Heritage Centres.

 

Following the heritage tour, volunteers from DBS served as mentors to guide students in their shopping trip at IMM. They were happy to have the freedom of choosing their own school supplies to get ready for school next year.

movie screening: frozen 2

We would like to thank Singapore Food Agency for sponsoring 80 kids to watch the movie premier of Frozen 2! The kids loved the movie and enjoyed themselves immensely.

On 16 November 2019, Loving Heart hosted young participants from Jurong for a delightful morning event organised by student volunteers from River Valley High School. Through sensory tests with origami and a station-based treasure hunt, our young participants had loads of fun.
