One of my most interesting & eye opening experience during a session is a recent commission to capture the students & teachers of a specials needs school in Singapore. I’m very impressed & really appreciate the care & patience the teachers & parents of special needs children, within the 2 days of spending time with them at their schools.
Below is an except from their website.
Established in 1992, Rainbow Centre Singapore is a registered charity with the Registry of Societies and granted the Institute of Public Character (IPC) status under the Charities Act.
The Centre runs two special education schools and two early intervention centres at Rainbow Centre – Margaret Drive School campus and Rainbow Centre – Yishun Park School campus for children with special needs. Both schools adopt a holistic developmental curriculum in areas of language and communication skills, cognitive skills, social and emotional skills, fine and gross motor skills, and adaptive daily living skills carried out by a multi-disciplinary team of trained Special Education Teachers, Speech Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Social Workers, and Music and Art Therapists.
Below are a selection of photos from the schools, and I hope it shows of the warmth and the fun I had while photographing them.
