No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted – and it’s never too early to start teaching children about the impact that this value has on the lives of those around them.
At MindChamps Preschool @ Nordcom II (Sembawang), our children are nurtured to be confident as we work together to bring out the best in them. As we emphasise on the values that make one a Champion, the children are also taught how simple gestures such as being grateful for life’s blessings and showing compassion towards others have the power to make a difference to the lives of others.
On top of learning about these values and life lessons in the classroom, our teachers also provide opportunities for the children to experience first-hand the true meaning behind them.
Real-life lessons on compassion
Every month, we at MindChamps PreSchool @ Nordcom II (Sembawang) focus on one of the 10 values of a MindChampion (watch this video to find out they are) and incorporate this into the lessons and activities that we do with the children.
For this month, to bring together the value of being “Compassionate” with the term’s theme of “Growing and Living Things”, the preschoolers proposed to spread their love and show their care and concern for needy families and the elderly in the neighbourhood by handing out gifts in the form of everyday food items.
Thanks to the support of their parents and with the kind gesture of Sunshine bread, the children and their parents and teachers got to hand out items such as drinks, biscuits and loaves of bread to the families in the Sembawang community.
Apart from helping to provide these families with the daily necessities, the presence of the children also brought joy to the residents – especially the elderly, who lit up upon seeing the eager faces of the children.
Check out these snapshots to see what the children got up to during the community activity:
A big thank you to our Champion parents for generously providing the items and their time to help out during this community activity – and to Sunshine bread for their kind donation of the cartons of bread to hand out!
