Saturday Night Lights (SNL) Central helps teenagers aged 12 to 20 develop character and positive values through the popular sport.

The programme is a tie-up between the philanthropic arms of the Singapore Sports Council and Changi Airport Group.

It is the first time a corporate partner is sponsoring the programme, which is the second of its kind. The first was launched at the old Jurong Stadium in Taman Jurong early last year.

The programme will see youths from the Kembangan-Chai Chee grassroots constituency coached in football and life skills every Saturday. more

NorthLight School Giving Less Academically Inclined Students Hope

Before NorthLight School started in 2007, students who failed the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) had to repeat it twice before they could enrol in one of the two Vocational Training Centres (VTCs) operated by the Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
This was because both Geylang Serai VTC and Assumption Vocational Institute only took in students aged 14 and over. The attrition rate at these two centres was also exceptionally high — 60 per cent of students did not finish the two-year programme. There was clearly a need for the Ministry of Education (MOE) to plug the gap in the education system or risk students dropping out of school entirely. It was in response to this problem that NorthLight School was set up to give the less academically inclined students another chance at finding success in life. NorthLight students graduate with an ITE Skills Certificate (ISC) qualification in one of four areas — Mechanical Services, Facility Services, Retail Services and Food Preparation Services. Depending on how well they have done, they can choose to continue their education at an ITE, sign up for a traineeship programme or join the workforce. click here for full article
