In spite of the continuing unprecedented challenges brought about by the Covid pandemic, NurtureStars’ Day 2021 was held on 8 October to appreciate the principals, teachers and staff for their unrelenting dedication and hard work.

The event theme “Together, Our NS Spirit” very aptly reflect the esprit de corps of our team and how it has emerged stronger and more determined from the experiences of the last two years.

Some 110 staff from all the six centres logged on to the event on Zoom, which was officiated by Ms Stephanie Chiew, NurtureStars’ Joint Committee Member. The programme included team-bonding activities, and recognition of the past year’s achievements and those who have made important contributions to the continuing success of the Preschool.

It celebrated the successful SPARK certification in March this year of another two NurtureStars centres, namely Jurong West and Punggol which joined the four other centres that had been certified earlier. It also recognised the promotion of 11 staff, including a Senior Principal and a Vice Principal.

The fun and bonding ensued with games using the Kahoot quiz platform. Designed by the SAFRA Cohesion Services, the games helped to further reinforce the strong bond among the staff and foster a more resilient NurtureStars team spirit. In the inter-centre quiz competition, NurtureStars Jurong emerged the winner and walk away with $200 CapitaLand voucher.

The annual event helped to further lift the spirit of teamwork and dedication among the staff.

Everyone received a specially-designed door-gift, distributed to them earlier, to mark the occasion.
