APSN

Established in 1976, Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) is a social service agency 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 18 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 beneficiaries, comprising students, trainees and alumni. The Association is constantly expanding its network to reach out to and understand the needs of its members to better support them.

The APSN 40th Anniversary Dinner and Dance was held at the One Farrer Hotel on Thursday, 4 September 2016.  Organized by Katong School, the theme was “Sparkling 40″ to commemorate APSN’s 40 years journey. 

Everyone came in their most sparkling and dazzling costumes. Dr Victor Tay, our newly elected President, addressed the crowd and spoke of the success that APSN has achieved in its 40 years. He also spoke of the plans that he hope APSN would strive for in the next 40 years to come.

 The highlight of the night was the Kahoot games, ‘Is that U?!’ and ‘So U Know our History?!’ that brought the whole APSN together. Each table challenged each other’s ability to guess the staff showcased on the screens and the history of APSN. The Dazzling Couple competition also caused a huge stir as participants from each school, centre and HQ competed to win the BEST Dazzling couple award by showing off their best dance moves. The dinner then commenced with the presentation of Long Service Awards, to both Staff and Volunteers.  Staff received their Awards with cash bonuses from APSN, whereas the volunteers on APSN Management received their awards (no cash !) from the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). The night closed with a magic show performance and with the whole of APSN grouping at the dance floor singing off together to end the night.

It was overall an enjoyable night to be remembered!
