AY2014/2015

For Academic Year 2014/2015, eight teams of CAPTains participated in the Capstone Experience module. In Semester I, the teams “Young at Heart” and “Henderson Heroes” worked with the elderly and youth respectively. For Semester II, one team did an assets-based community development mapping of the neighborhood of mainly elderly residents at Queen’s Close. Another team promoted intergenerational bonding between the elderly and the young through music. Children and youth were the focus of three other teams which addressed the issues of children’s morphological awareness and development in reading (“Words Apart”), social nudges in building healthy food habits for secondary school students and the experiences of GCE O Level re-takers (“Sometimes Stuff Happens”). The final team explored the key reasons for segregation and lack of integration between domestic workers and Singaporeans. Please read on for more sharing and insights from the Capstone teams.
