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 from 2019 called “Temasek Foundation – Project ParAble“.
Details of the programme is below.
Goals: To provide students and teachers in mainstream 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: Any mainstream school. 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.
Below is the list of sports that we offer for this project (maximum 5 sports; schools must choose minimum 2 sports from 1-4):
It is encouraged that schools indicate a commitment to taking up Component 2, before SDSC rolls out Component 1 in your school.
For the first component, we will work according to the school’s schedule and the time available to implement the above sports. Schools can indicate interest in more sports should the impact group be high.
The second component of the programme will be implemented on a later date and tailored to each school’s availability. It is mandatory for schools to first complete Component 1 before moving on to Component 2.
What: ADEPT is a 3-4 training session programme where SDSC’s facilitators and coaches will conduct in-depth training in one of the core sports (archery, boccia, goalball or shooting).
Who: The programme is open to able-bodied students, students with disabilities and teachers. It is compulsory for students with disabilities to participate, before the programme can commence.
Programme requirements: The programme requires a minimum of 5 pax and maximum of 20 pax. Each training session is 90 minutes long. Teachers can pursue this programme as an after-school or after-exam activity.
