Delta Senior School
The school offers its students educational and vocational training in key skills and disciplines required for life after graduation. The resort aims to convert DSS graduates into its full-time colleagues. It is one of the first few organisations to actively participate in the school’s Work Experience Programme, which exposes students to actual work life and environment in preparation for permanent employment. Since the programme’s inception in 2009, the resort has supported over 40 students with industrial attachments and internships across departments such as Housekeeping, Kitchen and Food and Beverage.
There are currently five DSS graduates with permanent employment at the resort; of which two started out 10 years ago in the horticultural department and later embarked into the Kitchen as part of their continuous career development path. In addition to supporting DSS in the Work Experience Programme, the resort actively engages and participates in the school’s special occasions – from its graduation ceremonies to Open House Days and various training workshops.
Arc Children’s Centre
In addition to DSS, the resort 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, diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. In 2011 and 2012 , Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa, together with Sentosa Golf Club and World Sport Group raised funds for the centre during the annual charity golf tournament titled ‘Drive for ARC’ and will continue with these efforts in 2013.
The resort hosts regular outings to spread some joy and cheer for the centre's children. These include visits to major attractions such as Gardens by the Bay, Underwater World and exploring the Duck Tour.
