17 NTUC First Campus employees were recognised at Singapore National Co-operative Federation’s inaugural Co-operative Movement Night
Convincing parents to enrol their children with developmental needs in an Early Intervention Programme is not an easy task. But that is what Senior Manager of the Child Support Services Department at NTUC First Campus (NFC), Ms Deniece Bidhiya, strives to do.
“I feel a lot of joy because I get the satisfaction of seeing how children benefit from the programme. It is nice to see parents understanding their children and learning how to help them,” she said.
The Early Intervention Programme at My First Skool (MFS) aims to reduce the gap between children with moderate developmental needs and their peers, thereby easing their integration into primary schools. This benefits the children, families and the community at large.
Deniece’s unwavering commitment to ensure that children with developmental needs and their parents received specialised help was recognised at the inaugural Co-operative Movement Night by Singapore National Co-operative Federation (SCNF) on June 3.
Centred on the theme “Women Make Magic”, SNCF’s Co-op Movement Night is an inaugural event that commemorates and celebrates female co-operators in Singapore, many of whom are outstanding individuals who have contributed selflessly to the movement, cared for others, and exhibited several of the co-operative values.
