P4 Visit to HCA Hospice Care ( HCA)
The P4 pupils visit the HCA Hospice Care (HCA) to interact and show care and concern towards the terminally ill. Prior to the visit, a school-based workshop titled “Touch of Love” was conducted by the facilitators from HCA. From this workshop, pupils learn interaction skills and plan mini interactive activities to be conducted during the visit. This can be in the form of performance or small group interactive sessions. The visit raises awareness in the pupils about eldercare issues and inculcates the value of empathy and respect emphasising on the importance of building intergenerational relationships.
