New Partner Schools for Disability Education Course!
March 1, 2018
Over the last few weeks, Soulcial Trust’s team was pleased to meet with students from two new schools to talk about disability, raising awareness among young people in Siem Reap about challenges faced by people with disabilities.
The Singapore Helm Institute of Education (SHINE), a children’s language and international business school, welcomed our trainers to introduce young students to issues around disability as part of their English project-based learning programme. The students attended 3 sessions in which they learnt about disability, such as the definition and types of disabilities, the challenges of life with disability, and the attitudes one should adopt towards people with disabilities.
Following the classroom-based sessions and to underscore what was learnt in the course, we invited SHINE students to visit our All-ability Wheelchair Sports Centre to meet with players with disabilities, listen to their stories and try some wheelchair basketball exercises!
Our education team also had the opportunity to work with students from Anjali House, an organisation that provides local children healthcare and education as well as avenues for creative expression to help them find success and fulfilment in the future. To fit everybody’s need, the disability course was organised in both Khmer and English. Students from Anjali House benefited from 3 sessions of our educational programme. The highly involved students took the initiative to act and film the role-playing in class as a part of their cultural activities.
SHINE and Anjali House join Go Global School, Svay Dongkum School, and the International School of Siem Reap as our educational programme partners. In the next couple of weeks, Soulcial Trust and the French School of Siem Reap will also embark on a partnership for the disability education programme. As our disability education programme grows, we expand our partnership, working with different local schools to enhance people’s knowledge of disability.
