STUDENTS AT RISK (STAR) PROGRAMME
Bubble Creative, one of the ECCE Council Strategic Partners, was a co-organizer of the STAR Programme which aims to help children, especially children with disabilities, reach their full potential. The ECCE Council was given 5 complimentary places to evaluate the Programme which was conducted on 3-5 May at the Bubble Creative Training Room. The ECCE Council extended the invitation to the Ministry of Health as it conducts early intervention programmes and also to the Special Education Division in the Ministry of Education. Unfortunately, the Special Education Division was not able to send anyone as none of the officers were available. The President of the Council attended at the special request of the organizers. The remaining 3 places were given to ECCE Council members who were invited to apply if interested. Five responded and lots were drawn to pick the three members to attend. The three lucky members were Ms Loh Lin Khuan, Mr Mark Lim Tze Seang and Ms Jennie Cheong Siew Wah. Puan Sa’adah Khalid, a member of the Executive Committee, paid the fee which is RM698 herself so that all the three remaining places would go to the Council members.
