APSN

Established in 1976, Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) is a social service organisation providing special education for persons with mild intellectual disability (IQ 50-70). Today, APSN operates four Special Education (SPED) Schools (APSN Chaoyang School, APSN Katong School, APSN Tanglin School and APSN Delta Senior School) for students aged 7 to 21, an APSN Student Care Centre for children aged 7 to 18 and an APSN Centre for Adults for persons aged 16 and older, benefiting over 1,200 beneficiaries each year.

The APSN Schools and Centre adopt a holistic approach in its curriculum, comprising academic, vocational and social skills, which are important for open employment and lifelong learning. APSN seeks to enable persons with special needs to be active contributors of the society and is committed to inspire and build capabilities of its partners and community to lead and advocate an inclusive society.

To date, APSN’s growing database has more than 5,000 alumni members. The Association is constantly expanding its network to reach out to and understand the needs of its members to better support them.

IHG Foundation Grants Gifts APSN US$50,000

The funds will allow the renovation of APSN CFA’s training kitchen and bakery according to industry specific requirements to be completed. This will in turn benefit at least 65 trainees in the Food and Beverage industry fundamental training programme. The training provides a fundamental course for new learners to kitchen, bakery and café crew training.

Beyond funding, the partnership with IHG began when APSN graduates and alumni were employed by the hotels under the IHG brand. In particular, Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre has been actively recruiting people with special needs over the past few years.

Apart from a celebratory lunch held on 12 September for 80 students and trainees from APSN schools and centre, 19 IHG staff from the corporate office came to APSN CFA for a morning of interaction with the trainees. This included activities such as food preparation and baking of cookies in the catering and bakery enterprise respectively. It was a fun-filled morning with many meaningful takeaways for the staff where they have gained new insights and perspectives on persons with mild intellectual disabilities.
