Summer programme 2017 opens for enrolment

24th May, 2017

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to announce that Rainbow Project will be running the Rainbow Summer School in July 2017.

The Rainbow Summer program is specifically designed for pre-school and primary children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Although priority is given to children with ASD, but to promote inclusion we would like to encourage children with other special needs to join us. Siblings enjoy special discounted rate too! Children from mainstream schools are welcome too! The summer program will be operated in 2 main groups, the pre-school group for 3 to 6 years old and the primary group for 7 to 13 years old. The children will enjoy activities specially designed to match the children’s age and functioning level in both groups.

Rainbow summer program focuses mainly on play base activities and is designed with a balanced combination of outdoor activities and classroom based activities. We aim to enhance the children’s social interaction and communication skills through participating in the activities throughout the 3 weeks.

Here are a few examples:

  • Music/Drama & Movement
  • Art/Craft and Sensory Play
  • Water Play (indoor inflatable for the pre-school kids / outdoor at the public pool for primary kids)
  • Field trips to various places of interest (Lamma Island, Inspiration Lake, funzone, rock climbing, hiking at the peak (Peak tram ride), pizza making, beach, Disneyland, etc)

Practical

The program is specially designed and will be conducted by experienced and qualified teachers who have received training in teaching children with ASD. To ensure that your children are in safe hands at all times during outings and activities, volunteers will be joining us to support the teachers in conducting the activities. All volunteers will receive training and attend briefing to help them understand the needs of ASD children. Parents’ participation are welcomed too!

Summer School starts on Monday, 3rd July and ends on Friday, 21st July, a full 3 weeks. Start at 9.00am and finish at 12.00pm every day, Monday to Friday.

Parents are welcomed to enrol your child to join us for 1 week, 2 weeks or the full 3 weeks.
