Temasek Foundation Cares – Project ParaABLE

Attention School Leaders, PE HODs and Teachers!

Be part of this unique opportunity from the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) to promote inclusivity and integration between students with and without special needs.

The SDSC, a charity and national sporting body for persons with disability, acts as a member of the Disability Sports Master Plan Implementation Committee to support mainstream schools in understanding disability sports and creating an inclusive sporting environment for students with disability. As part of our efforts, we are introducing a new programme in 2019 called “Temasek Foundation Cares – Project ParaABLE“.

Details of the programme is below.

Temasek Foundation Cares – Project ParaABLE

Goals: To provide students and teachers in mainstream secondary schools with the resources and confidence to implement inclusive sports programmes that can lead to sustainable opportunities for students with disability to benefit from physical activity and peer teamwork.

Open to: Mainstream secondary schools that have/ would have students with disability. Schools with or expecting students with physical or sensorial impairments (e.g. hearing, sight) would be prioritised.

Costs: No fees payable by the school. All costs for equipment, activities and facilitators would be fully absorbed.
