CHSP Seniors play with Watercolours!

Who knew our seniors were such talented artists? 
 
We held a fantastic art therapy session on June 3rd for our CHSP seniors, guided by art therapist, Victoria Lowery.
The seniors were evidently excited for their first art activity and worked hard to present “the Colours of their Heart”. They were keen to learn about watercolour and stenciling techniques that they would later use in their own works. The activity created a relaxed atmosphere that allowed the seniors to fully engage in their work. It was one of the few times where our seniors weren’t merrily chatting!
It was a wonderful opportunity for them to practice their creative side by expressing themselves through various colours, patterns and shapes; and the results were stunning! We expected no less from our seniors!
While the session was aimed to reduce stress and practice psychological wellbeing, it was most importantly an activity designed for our seniors to enjoy themselves. It was rewarding for us and the seniors to see the result of their work at the end.
 
We are looking forward to seeing what other creative surprises seniors have to show!

Seniors very prepared for Ramadan

Throughout the month of May, our seniors group met regularly in preparation for Ramadan.

The first gathering was for ‘Ramadan Love Letter’, a session led by Sister Nurhayati who is a graduate from Al Azhar University majoring in Shariah Islamiah. She is a recognised Asatizah by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore. She also did her Post Graduate diploma in Islamic Law. 

The number of participants exceeded expectations. All attendees were captivated and engaged in listening to the guest speaker. Sister Nurhayati explained thoroughly the revelation prescribing Ramadan and the rationale behind fasting. 

Following on from Ramadan Love Letter was 3 Tajweed classes (reading the Quran with correct pronunciation and grammar), led by Sister Hanna. Some of the ladies from the seniors group enjoyed the Quran reading so much that they will in future also attend the Monday classes

This program was a huge success; the feedback received was overwhelmingly positive, all sessions went smoothly and the group is looking forward to future similar sessions.
