2023 Posso Preschool @ Fernvale Collaborates with iC2 PrepHouse – Start Small Dream Big (SSDB) project
Posso Preschool @ Fernvale recently joined forces with iC2 PrepHouse for a special collaboration as part of this year’s SSDB (Start Small Dream Big) initiative. The aim of this project was to raise awareness about visual impairment, provide an experiential learning opportunity for assisting the visually impaired, and foster an understanding of how our young learners acquire literacy skills through Braille and tactile materials. Posso Preschool extended a warm invitation to Teacher Ying Zhi and Teacher Amanda to organize and lead a half-day event that engaged students ranging from PG to K1.
Teacher Ying Zhi, working closely with Miss Michelle, Posso Preschool @ Fernvale Centre Principal, and Teacher Estrella, undertook the planning of activities relating to visual impairment. These activities included the use of simulated eye masks to simulate various eye conditions, an obstacle course guided by sighted peers to understand the concept of sighted guides, and a unique opportunity for students to experience typing on a Perkins Brailler.
Thank you to Posso Preschool for this invaluable partnership!
