SPD started the year on a high as close to 300 staff from all SPD’s centres gathered for a day of fellowship on 15 January. The annual Staff Day kicked off in the morning with staff from different departments working in teams to complete a series of games and tasks.
A staff appreciation dinner was held that same night to recognise achievements and contributions throughout the year. Organised with a sports theme, the event was made more enjoyable as almost everyone came in fun or matching sports attire – from traditional taekwondo dobok to quirky 1970’s-inspired exercise wear. A team turned up in capes, seemingly inspired by Quidditch, a sport originated in the Harry Potter series.
In a competition where every division/department had to create a flag that embodies their goals and personalities, the Community and Social Support Division took the top prize with their beacon-themed flag. When the 15 flags were lined on stage, they also highlighted the different characteristics that made up the DNA of SPD.
Long-serving staff were honoured at the dinner. We take the opportunity to congratulate:
Philip Ang, Senior Finance Executive
Loi Boon Lee, Senior Director, Community Partnerships
Tay Hwee Lin, Principal Occupational Therapist
Sarah Yong, Manager, Specialised Assistive Technology Centre
R Manoogar, Senior Workshop Supervisor
Chow Deborah Kellene, Senior Manager, Clinical Services
Cally Gwee, Admin Executive, Therapy Hub
Ivan Tan, Manager, e-Accessibility
It was definitely a great way to start the year and we look forward to scaling greater heights in 2016!
