Term 3 has ended and the school holidays are here again! In September, Blossom Discovery Center to the holiday theme ‘Occupations’. First up, we were introduced to the occupations found in our very own school eg: teacher, cleaner and cook
To be introduced to the jobscope of our school’s cook and cleaner, the children had the opportunity to watch the aunties go about their daily routines (ie. preparing meals for the day, and cleaning the school.) For a cooking demo, the children from Playgroup, Nursery 1 and Nursery 2 witnessed the aunties in action as they demonstrated the art of frying a perfect scrambled egg, followed by a step-by-step demonstration of cooking a wok full of mouth-watering fried rice!
For the older children, they were introduced to a cleaner’s jobscope! For this, Aunty Helen was roped in on the action as we got her to explain to the children the importance of being responsible and learning to play a part in keeping the school clean. Aunty Helen demonstrated various cleaning tasks as she explained the importance of maintaing a clean and hygienic environment for us all! Preschoolers will learn responsible habits more easily if they are given a set routine early on and understand that chores a part of everyday life. You’ll be amazed by how much pride and self-reliance preschoolers gain from undertaking simple daily chores.
A BIG THANK YOU to Aunty Helen and Aunty Goh as they took time out to introduce their daily responsibilities. The children had the golden opportunity to learn to appreciate all the hard work and efforts the aunties put in on a daily basis to ensure the smooth running of our school. Great job, Aunties! You’ve been excellent teachers for the day and role-models for our children!
