Pathlight School and Yio Chu Kang Secondary School today signed a Memorandum of Understanding for Satellite Partnership Model. With this MOU, Yio Chu Kang Secondary joined Chong Boon Secondary School, Bishan Park Secondary School and Peirce Secondary School as Pathlight's 4th Satellite Partner School.
The event was held in Yio Chu Kang Secondary School. It was attended by Mrs Loke-Yeo Teck Yong, Director, Education Services, Ministry of Education, Ms Denise Phua, Supervisor of Pathlight School Board, Principals and staff of both Pathlight and Yio Chu Kang Secondary, as well as senior officers from MOE.
The purpose of the Satellite Partnership model is to provide opportunities for purposeful integration between SPED school and Mainstream school students. These opportunities come in the form of physical, social and academic integration for students and professional integration for teachers.
The model provides for our students to apply classroom learning of social skills to the real world. At the same time, it also contributes to building awareness among mainstream communities of people with autism.
We welcome Yio Chu Kang Secondary School as our new Satellite Partner and look forward to working closely with them to build a more inclusive society!
