Highlights
Juni Syafiqa Binte Jumat
Alumni (Graduated in 2013)

Juni Syafiqa Binte Jumat - Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore School
Ms Juni Syafiqa Binte Jumat, 25 years old, graduated from CPASS in 2013. Diagnosed with athetoid cerebral palsy, Syafiqa uses her motorized wheelchair as a mobility aid. Since her graduation, Syafiqa has been actively involved in the community in both sports and work. She is a Boccia athlete and attends weekly training sessions at CPAS. In terms of work, Syafiqa has been working as a food delivery person with Grab Food since 2018. Although she faces many challenges such as wheelchair inaccessible areas and crowded lifts in shopping malls, Syafiqa perseveres and tries to overcome the obstacles by putting the community mobility skills that she has gained during her schooling days to good use in her current work.

Syafiqa finds her job fulfilling as she sees it as a means to gain independence and she is grateful that she has the support from her family in her decision to work. She looks forward to seeing more people with cerebral palsy gain employment and hopes that there will be more wheelchair accessible facilities to aid her and other wheelchair users so that they can better integrate into the community.
Aloysius Gan Kai Hong
Functional Senior Programme

Aloysius Gan Kai Hong - Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore School
Student Aloysius Gan from Class Eagle 8A has severe physical disability and is often excluded from participating in classroom activities. He has to depend on a communications partner and physical assistance to perform his tasks. Despite such challenges, he has managed to excel in the classroom and sports.

In 2013, Aloysius started playing Boccia, a para-sport. Through immense family support and sheer determination, Aloysius has attained several medals in the sport, including a gold medal in the Get Active SG! Boccia Competition in 2018.

Aloysius began learning IT skills such as designing in a bid to secure future employment. As he cannot access his iPad directly, he has to learn how to use switches to perform his tasks. Using an accessibility feature called Switch Control, Aloysius is able to navigate the iPad to communicate with others and design creative posters using Keynote Application. His hard work resulted in his promotional flyer for MyNoNNa’s Café to be featured on their Facebook Page.

With the correct tools and right attitude, Aloysius has proven that he can overcome his adversity and move towards success.
Janelle Han Xin En
Functional Junior Programme

Janelle Han Xin En - Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore School
Janelle Han Xin En joined Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore School in 2016 and is currently attending the Functional Junior 2 Programme.

Over recent years, Janelle has achieved the unachievable with the unwavering support of her family, teachers, and Allied Professionals in CPASS.

Today, Janelle is a confident and mature young individual. She has acquired the pre-readers stage of recognising letters of the alphabet and naming them. Janelle is strong in her basic phonics and is progressing to the next stage of blending sounds to read and write new words.

Janelle never shies away from communicating with others even when speech is a concern for her. She works hard to improve on her fluency and pronunciation through the guided reading practices in class, guided by her Speech & Language Pathologist. To date, she has shown a significant improvement in her sentence construction and speech clarity during conversations.

As a student with hemiplegia condition, many of the daily living skills continue to pose a challenge for Janelle. However, she has benefitted from both the Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy support. We were very proud to witness her progression in the recent Home-based Learning sessions whereby videos were sent by her father showcasing Janelle performing tasks such as wiping the dining area and operating the washing machine to do the family laundry. She was also able to follow instructions to prepare and cook green bean soup for her family.

When asked what her aspiration is, Janelle eagerly replied, “I want to be a teacher!'

Janelle will always be here to remind us, ' No dream is too big as long as we don't give up learning.'
