This service provides students with a deeper understanding of the issue of income inequality in Singapore. This service gives the students the opportunity to develop their communication and collaboration skills with their peers but also directly with the children and teachers from PPIS. Students develop the skills and qualities of the Learner Profile as they learn to adapt and problem solve each week.
PPIS is a fantastic service where committed members of the UWCSEA community come together every Friday afternoon to have fun with kids from the PPIS school. The children who come to us are typically of Malay decent, with some being underprivileged. With the myriad of resources that us UWC students have at our disposal, we create the best 1 hour session we can to help liven them up! We play games, dance, colour, go to the playground and more. Join us on our journey to making the children (and ourselves happier)!
