MTW 2019: Creative Writing Workshop – Hougang Sheng Hong Student Care

10 Apr 2019

19 exuberant lower primary children from Hougang Sheng Hong Student Care Centre participated in two More Than Words creative writing workshops on 29 March and 1 April 2019.

The children were taught how to compose a simple haiku about their role models and many wrote about their mothers, fathers and best friends. A typical Haiku comprises the structure of 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line and 5 syllables in the third line. Apart from creative writing, the students were also encouraged to express themselves visually by drawing self-portraits and portraits of their role models under the close guidance of youth volunteers.

Intern and Past Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan scholar from Hwa Chong Institution (2017-2018), Teo Pei Qin was empowered to put together a lesson plan and conducted the lively workshops using multi-media resources. Assisting her during the session were Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan scholars from Republic Polytechnic AY2018/19, Wayne Lok, Loh Han Kiat and friends.
