AY2018/2019

In Academic Year 2018/2019, there were seven Capstone projects involving 30 students and three new partners. One team worked with HealthServe to examine the sources and coping mechanisms of stress among Bangladeshi migrant workers in Singapore. Another team worked with Monfort Care and AWWA to develop a programme to engage foreign domestic workers who are caregivers of the elderly, to identify and reduce the incidence of falls and injuries among the elderly. The Capstone module has also continued to work with our community partners on different programmes. Two teams worked with high school students from Nanhua High School to increase their ecoliteracy and critical thinking skills. Two other teams worked with Lakeside Family Services Centre to develop reading resources to promote parent-child reading programmes at home. The last team developed Project Kindle+ and worked with Epsworth Community Services (previously Methodist Children and Youth Centre) to implement a mentoring programme for youth.
