June 2019 Holiday Program and Excursions
An overview of what we did for the June holidays!
An overview of what we did for the June holidays!
As with all holidays, most parents will be stretching their brain cells to come up with programmes to entertain their children. For students at our student care centres, it is one less headache for the parents as we take on this task for them. Here is a recap of our very exciting holiday program for our student care kids in Nov/Dec 18.
In the spirit of giving, our students did volunteer work at Willing Hearts, where they helped in the packing of food to be distributed to the needy.
The students from our Bishan and Ang Mo Kio Centre performed songs and played games with the Elderly.
It has been an exciting holidays and now it’s time for us to put our focus on academics!
Till the next holiday!
It’s not new and we’re definitely not the first, but still better late than never! We have officially launched our app so that parents of our student care kids can get photos and notices via the app as opposed to hard copies.
It’s our small effort to go environmental friendly and cut down the use of paper.
This is a snapshot of how the interface looks like.
It’s the time of the year again. Primary 1 registration was concluded some time back and parents are awaiting anxiously for the Orientation Day. For most schools, this day seemed to be some time in early to mid Nov.
This is the peak season for us as we encounter numerous enquiries for our student care vacancies in 2019.
Some parents are shopping around, in case they are unable to get a slot in the almost always oversubscribed student care centres within the primary schools.
School based student care centres are often unable to confirm if they have a slot for your child until Orientation Day.
It is generally believed that lower income families are given priority.
Here, we discuss the pros and cons of enrolling your child into a school based student care centre vs one of the Stamford Scholars student care centres:
And here it is, our brutally honest review of us and our friendly school based competitors.
Now that the Primary 1 registration is almost over, are you also thinking about how you could help your child enter Primary 1 better prepared?
What should your child know before entering primary 1?
We have a list for items for you! This is by no means comprehensive, but feedback from parents who have been through it all.
While we are busy ushering our kids to enrichment classes to ensure they will not lose out in the academic race, let’s not forget about the soft skills.
Having a confident and disciplined child might in fact be more important than being able to read fluently.
After all, a diligent child will in turn do better academically.

Fickle-mindedness, though not often encouraged, is nonetheless common amongst young children. This program gives your child the flexibility to try other musical instruments at no additional costs. Say he decided that he doesn’t want to learn piano anymore, he can try drums.
Exploration and exposure to different instruments at a young age let the child finds out for himself what his real interests are.
As the music classes are held during the student care program once a week, it saves you a trip to the music school during the weekend. It frees up time for your child and yourself to do other things.
It’s tough, and tiring to get kids to do work. We get it, because we are parents too. We allocate 15-30 mins every day for music practice, so we offload you from one task.
Your child may just be starting out on this music learning journey and you’re not sure if you should invest in a thousand-dollar piano or drum set yet. You won’t have to, if your child is going to practice in the centre. He has free access to all the instruments.
Music is an art. Music soothes the soul. We believe it should be something enjoyable as well. Amidst all the pressure of studies and achieving good results, taking a break to learn music in the school day will be a respite for your child and could possibly improve his concentration span.
All the students on the program learn music. Learning with friends will help promote interest.
The music integrated student care program is a collaboration between Stamford Scholars and Ossia Music School. Music classes and daily music practice are incorporated into the student care program. The student care program is housed within the music schools, and operated by Stamford Scholars. The music classes are taught by the professional and qualified music teachers from Ossia Music School.
