Gardens by the Bay with the Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) Katong School
In October 2019, the Manager conducted its first community day outreach programme in partnership with the Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) Katong School. A social service agency providing special education for persons with mild intellectual disability, ASPN operates four Special Education (SPED) Schools, benefiting over 1,200 beneficiaries each year.
Together with volunteers from the Sponsor, the Manager brought 24 Secondary Two students from APSN Katong School to Gardens by the Bay for a field trip where they visited two exhibitions – Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. The visit was educational and relatable for the children as it was in line with their curriculum on horticulture.
This mutually enriching experience allowed the students to benefit from invaluable out-of-class learning, and gave Lendlease volunteers the opportunity to befriend and interact with the students.
