Since 2003, Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa has been working with the Delta Senior School, an educational institute for persons with special needs. Through the school’s six-month Work Experience Programme, students are exposed to the experience of actual work life and environment, preparing them for future permanent employment. From this programme, two Delta Senior School graduates are currently employed at the resort and 13 interns have been taken on for the school’s Work Experience Programme this year.
The resort also works with Arc Children’s Centre, a non-profit organisation which provides day care and support for families with children between 3 to 18 years of age, who suffer from life-threatening illnesses and emotional problems.
Employment and Special Projects
The resort currently employs two Delta Senior School graduates, who take excellent care of the resort gardens. They are currently on a job rotation role per their request, helping out as a kitchen porter once a week. They have proved to be good colleagues - one has been working at the resort for 11 years and the other for 9 years. The resort’s colleagues have led various workshops for the school this year, such as grooming for food & beverage service, cocktail creation, balloon twisting, aerobics etc.
Where Hope Shines
In November 2011, Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort, together with Sentosa Golf Club and World Sport Group raised SGD 100,000 for the centre during their annual charity golf tournament titled ‘Drive for ARC’. The resort will continue to dedicate its fundraising efforts for ARC Children’s Centre with ‘Drive for ARC’ in 2012.
The funds raised go towards enriching the lives of more children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The centre started with caring for nine children in 2011 and now cares for 40 children. Eighteen siblings have also benefited from the help of the centre.
On 4 September 2012, the Sales & Marketing team of the resort brought the children from ARC Children’s Centre to Singapore’s latest attraction – Gardens by the Bay. The centre’s volunteers and 19 children were treated to lunch at the resort followed by a tour of the garden’s glass conservatories.
On 15 September, the last World Coastal Day, 12 Delta Senior School students joined colleagues from Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa, Traders Hotel Singapore and representatives from Sentosa Development Corporation for a day of beach cleaning.
