Every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month is a special musical programme —The Music Class. Cikgu Chan is the teacher -in -charge who teaches them to sing and dance while volunteers are helping to bring these children together to enjoy the musical songs and dances. These groups of children also participate frequently in many stage events presentation. Besides having the opportunity to enjoy the music, these children are also able to learn to face challenges in their new environment.
With regards to the 2nd and 4th Saturday, we have arranged Music & Movement Class. It simply means that our children are being treated physically behind some soothing music that makes them happy in a relaxing atmosphere. This practice, under less stressful condition, is more acceptable by our children when compares to the traditional physiotherapy methods. Of course, our children still need the assistance and strong encouragement from our volunteers to carry out the required movements as guided and instructed by our therapists.
However, we are facing serious problems in the shortage of volunteers. Leader of the LDH caring group, Elaine said these two activities are considered special, she appealed to all volunteers to come and help out every week. The children need some time to recognize and understand new volunteers. Those volunteers who truly have the heart to be involved should not feel afraid, we can provide the necessary training, guiding them with the knowledge and skills on how to handle these special children. When a child who felt so strange with you at the beginning and suddenly capable of calling out your name, you really feel touched and blessed.
