2016 Year End Party

The annual year end party has become our favourite “holiday” celebration of the year. It has become a true celebration of teachers, therapists, caregivers, community helpers and children who have grown into a cohesive team. It marks the end of yet another incredible year here at Sri Eden.

The day kick started with lively Christmas carols, ushering the festive season. After which students from Rose class performed a cultural Malay and Indian dance. Kong Chan Weng, one of our senior students, played the organ in front of an audience for the very first time!

 

The highlight of the day was, of course, the award giving ceremony. Students who exhibited progress in areas of social and academic development were awarded with trophies. Apart from that, parents, who have been tirelessly supporting their child and upholding Sri Eden were awarded with a token of appreciation.

It has been a tradition of ours to have a potluck lunch at our annual party, where parents generously contribute yummy dishes! And so we all went back with joyful hearts and happy tummies!

We could not achieve what we do without the support of families and community helpers. Thank you for being a part of Sri Eden!

Kindly head over to our Facebook page to check out photos from the event. 

Come support us for the M.A.D Variety Showcase Dinner on the 17th of January 2016!

Board games have been known to help instill many skills for children to develop, regardless of age. They help teach our children to:

Take turns

Children learn to cultivate patience and wait for their turn. They prompt their friends by calling their name, when it’s their turn to move. This encourages children to communicate with one another.

Improve maths knowledge

Educational board games teach children the basic counting skills and descending skills quickly.

Gain knowledge of basic concepts

Children learn to follow the rules of the board game, play fairly and understand the nature of the game. They learn to keep tabs on their colour and move their respective blocks at the right time.

Grammar and vocabulary

Children have the opportunities to learn correct grammar and vocabulary. E.g. “Please pass me the dice. Whose turn is it?” They learn to cheer for their friends by imitating the teacher’s vocal expressions. E.g. “Common! You can do it!”.

Social Skills

Board games encourage children to be more sociable, allow them to use their own language to interact, communicate with freedom of speech. Some children with poor language command and bad manners may emerge during playtime. However, teachers and older kids will be able to correct younger children and lead them to speak good English and behave well. They learn to make friends easily, play comfortably with anyone regardless of races or religion or the color of the skin. Social skills also includes an exchange of non-verbal language. Children who have no speech in our centre may also join in and have the opportunity to learn new skills!

Recognition of colours

Ludo introduces 4 colours (green, blue, yellow, red). By repeated pronunciation of the colour, and indication (by pointing at their colour blocks),

young children learn to identify and recognize colours confidently.

Chinese New Year is a Chinese festival which marks the start of a new year. This festivity is the time for family and friends to gather and reunite, which is the most fundamental part of the New Year. 
Resort Communication and Public Relations Department of Genting Malaysia Berhad took this favorable time to invite 10 organizations to unite along in welcoming the “Year of the Wooden Goat”. These organizations consists of underprivileged children and senior citizens from all over Malaysia.
On 28th February 2015, at 8:30 am, 29 students and 14 caretakers boarded the bus provided by Resort World Genting with excitement. A handful of parents from Sri Eden volunteered themselves to assist our children during this event and they were assigned to certain children to look after. Sri Eden would like to thank those parents who did a tremendous job.
This 6 hour event included the Lion Dance and ‘Choi Sen Yeh’ to usher the Guest of Honor, Puan Sri Cecilia Lim, wife of respectable Chairman and chief executive of Genting Malaysia Berhad. The children were also entertained with performances by the Artiste group and magic show.
The lunch provided were food heaven! Our children were blessed to be able to choose from a vast variety of food ranging from local, Western and Japanese cuisine. Our children were especially attracted to the dessert section.
In line with the Chinese tradition, angpows and goodie bags were personally handed to each child by Puan Sri Cecilia Lim. 
In the evening, the children watched the long awaited Ultraman Live Show. During the show they were extremely joyous and they were on high spirits.

We would like to thank the management of Resorts World Genting for this invitation.

Hands of Hope Charity Musical Night

On the 14th of December 2014, hands of hope organised a charity musical night at the Le Quadri Ballroom, UCSI Campus Kuala Lumpur. The objective of the event was to raise funds to bring a change in these childrens’ life through music. With an aim of bringing hope for tomorrow through music, the money raised was used to purchase musical instruments for 3 organisations. Sri Eden was blessed to be one of the 3 beneficiaries. Highlights of the event included musical performances by the children from the Chin Children Organisation, a leading center for the Myanmar Refugee Children. Guests were also entertained by a classy Jazz performance from the UCSI students. Apart from all, the award presentation ceremony was the most anticipated agenda of the night. 4 children from Sri Eden were chosen to be presented with awards for their outstanding performance. Our children felt truly inspired to be acknowledged for their hard work. Even through they were not able to express it in words, their smiles conveyed a message of excitement and gratitude. With a grateful heart, we at Sri Eden would like to thank all parties involved for this opportunity.
