This year, we decided to focus on the theme “Friends All Around”. The main goal of our SSDB project this year was to inculcate care, respect and appreciation for their “Friends All Around” despite their differences.
For our launch party, the children made cards for one another to show appreciation for their friends.

After the activity, the children were encouraged to ponder about friends from outside our centre who have different abilities. Teachers read a book titled “My Special Needs Family” where children learnt a little about autism.

They also watched videos published by Sharity Elephant on YouTube regarding others with physical disabilities. From there, they completed the “I see, I feel, I wonder” chart.

The adventure continues as the children begin to wonder more about their friends with these different abilities. They were curious to learn more and eager to forge friendships with them!
