Farah Auni Binte Abdul Gapar
Year 1 student in the Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ) Hotel and Accommodation Services programme

Farah Auni Binte Abdul Gapar - Delta Senior School
Farah Auni Binte Abdul Gapar began her journey in Delta Senior School (DSS) in 2018 as a student in the LEAD programme, a course of study that offers a progressive curriculum which covers various aspects of student development, with a focus on life skills. For the LIFE module, a component of the LEAD programme, Farah attended sessions on Adapted Self Defence, which centered on improving her strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and endurance. Alongside her classmates, Farah also had the opportunity to collectively plan for learning journeys, through which she learned about the various leisure and recreational facilities in the community. Such authentic learning experiences provided the platform for Farah to practise appropriate social behaviour as well as enhance her interpersonal skills. As part of the Work Experience Programme, Farah was assigned the role of a caregiver assistant in a home for senior citizens. Her scope of work during on-site training included folding clothes, cleaning the premises, making beds as well as assisting the elderly in their daily routines. Farah excelled in her duties, which gave her the leverage, in terms of work readiness, for a transfer to the Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ) Hotel and Accommodation Services programme in 2020, where she continues to learn, improve and thrive.
