Bursary Program in Aljunied-Hougang Town

In April this year, the The WP Community Fund community collaborated with an online education services provider, Explico - AI Enabled Education Assessment, to pilot a free bursary program for Primary 5 and Primary 6 students who were on the MOE FAS and/or students whose families were Blue CHAS card holders and who resided in Aljunied-Hougang town.

The subjects offered were English, Maths and Science. About 30 students participated in this pilot and I spent the last week (after the PSLE ended!), to chat with some of them. I am glad that the students found the additional coaching useful, especially with respect to concepts they hadn’t adequately grasped or understood in school.

I spoke to Bennett, Ian, Insyirah and Matthew and their parents. All of them were supportive of the program. In view of this feedback, we look forward to offer this bursary program again next year and hope to widen the number of students who could benefit from the program.

If you have a good idea to share on how we can reach out to more students or young ones in the community who could benefit from this or similar initiatives, do reach out to me and my WP colleagues!
