Highlights
Muhammad Zikri Bin Abdullah
Alumni (Graduated in 2018)

Muhammad Zikri Bin Abdullah - AWWA School Alumni
Zikri graduated from AWWA School in 2018. He is a sociable, caring and responsible student. His peers looked up to him as he displayed great leadership skills when being tasked to help his peers facing difficulties. As he interacted well with others, he was able to form natural friendship bonds with his peers and juniors.

In 2017, Zikri was awarded the Lee Kuan Yew Exemplary Student Award. He was recognized for his perseverance in learning, responsibility in carrying out tasks in school and at home. He excelled in competitive sports for CCA as well as performed in a choir for a public performance. He was able to overcome the various challenges he faced to motivate and inspire his peers.

Zikri is a keen learner who consistently seeks to improve his quality of work. He was able to adapt and perform well in the various work exposure opportunities provided to him before securing a part-time employment with an F&B restaurant upon graduation. He works well with his colleagues and his supervisor is pleased with his level of performance. Zikri’s determination and perseverance to constantly improve himself has led him to sustaining his current employment.
Diong Huan En Faith
Senior Level

Diong Huan En Faith - AWWA School
Faith has very challenging physical limitations and on top of that, she has a tracheostomy and depends on a portable resuscitator.

Despite her medical condition, Faith’s jovial nature brings cheer to her teachers and classmates. She communicates with them using her iPad, an augmentative and alternative communication (ACC) device customised to support her communication.

Through the school's PE programme, Faith discovered an interest in Boccia, a sport for persons with cerebral palsy or related neurological conditions. The interest was further developed through CCA training. Along with the training provided by her coach and teachers, as well as dedicated support from her family, Faith has grown in her skills in Boccia. She has been representing AWWA School in the National Disability League (Boccia) since 2011. She was 9 years old then.

It may take a long time to develop skills in a particular sport for students like Faith, but faith helps them to see the impossible. And Faith embodies such faith. 
 Iman Khalish Bin Mohamed Sham
Junior Level

 Iman Khalish Bin Mohamed Sham - AWWA School
Iman Khalish has grown from a shy boy who repeated what others said, to a student who is friendly, helpful and confident. As a result, he has made a few good friends and in particular, he has formed a close friendship with one of his classmates who frequently helps him in activities.

Where previously Khalish used to echo and mimic others’ behaviours, now he is a class leader. He promptly gets the class ready for morning greeting daily and assists his teacher to lead the class in doing the warm-up actions during PE.

Khalish has always been an industrious student but did not know how to ask for help or proceed to the next task independently. With guidance and modelling, he has now learned to request for help and is able to independently complete a 45-minute vocational activity consisting of different tasks. Even though he is in the Junior programme, these soft skills that he has acquired will help him develop further as he progresses to the Senior programme.

From being a student who was mainly focused on structured work tasks, Khalish has picked up home living skills, IT savviness and sports. Currently his passion is cooking - he enjoys meal preparation lessons and is very good at it.
