Successful Open Day at STEPS Casuarina
By Emma Wu
Congratulations on the successful STEPS Open Day at Casuarina on 8th September 2023.
Over 40 participants and service providers joined this event immersing in fun and informative activities.
We kicked off with an information session where AMEP and SEE programs were introduced to all participants with photos showcasing the wonderful learning experience STEPS Casuarina has been offering over the years.
Our AMEP 75th Anniversary award of excellence winner Amalynn Manlutac also received her certificate and presented a touching and encouraging speech.
After Amalynn’s speech, guests went on a STEPS tour led by our student ambassadors. To ensure a smooth experience, Student Support Officer Yeimi Salazar Villa prepared the student ambassadors with training sessions over three weeks. Work procedures, ambassador work schedule and tour path were explicitly presented during the sessions.
Cheered by the songs performed by STEPS music band, guests signed up with various hands-on activities offered at the Open Day. They made their own coffee using an espresso machine under the guidance of teacher Joyce Wu. Teacher Catherine Brewster’s mini-English class had a hilarious moment when discussing the use of language in life and at work. Henna hand design was a big hit with crowds of people lining up to get their hands decorated with aesthetic patterns. It was led by our receptionist Bhavyah and two students.
STEPS staff and students collaborated closely to ensure a wonderful experience for our community. The teamwork demonstrated from this event helped lead another success for the Casuarina team.
