$Money$ Mind 4 Teens

23 10 2008

 

 

Time spent with the Springfield bunch yesterday was a BLAST!

 

We had a financial literacy workshop delivered by Abang Abu – yup, that celebrity columnist of the Ekoniaga column in Berita Harian.

  

It was rather interesting looking at how the workshop was conducted. The approach used is what some would call, IEL – Indoor-based Experiential Learning. Quite rare to observe IEL delivered excellently nowadays.

 

What is IEL, you asked? In short, it is a dynamic learning process that engages participants through reflection on doing. OK, maybe more on that on another entry next time.

 

In that workshop, Abang Abu led the bunch in playing the Cashflow 101 boardgame. Boy, did they really struggle in getting out of the Rat Race. Some actually did! Not bad for first timers.

 

In fact, we had a runaway winner with earnings of $2.5 million!

 

Despite not being successful in getting out of the Rat Race, everyone had fun. But more importantly, they took away from it some important life lessons.

 

One of those lessons the bunch should have known by now is:

 

A.B.U – Always Believe in Urselves!

 

Haha…enjoy the pics.

 

 

Pick your profession!

Pick your profession!

 

Let's start playing!

Let's start playing!

Gimme a six. C'mon! - Rolling the dice

Gimme a six. C'mon! Rolling the dice.

Want to buy or sell, ah?

Want to buy or sell, ah? Wait, lemme think...

A.B.U! Always Believe in Urself!

Transformation Series: Adolescence & Sexuality

22 10 2008

 

  

Naked & Sacred…

 

That is how I would describe the Transformation Series workshop with the Springfield bunch yesterday.

 

The topic of yesterday’s workshop was on Adolescence & Sexuality. Quite a sensitive subject. Of course,  the boys were naturally shy in the beginning. But I’m glad that they warmed up quickly right after.

 

It was a fruitful discussion. Some of the boys actually plucked up the courage and bared their souls in front of their peers. And the rest reciprocated with maturity, by observing respect and pledging confidentiality to those who opened up.

 

In fact, I thought we all grow a little closer by the end of the workshop. I’m proud of them. If only Ustadz Ahmad was around to be with us

 

A couple of pics. Not much. Did not have a camera with me. Do enjoy, nevertheless.

As Ramadhan gradually slips away from us…

30 09 2008

 

How time flies. It felt as though just a fortnight ago we started fasting. And here we are on the last day of the Blessed Month.

I hope it has been a fruitful month for you and I. May Allah let us live to meet the next Ramadhan, insyaAllah.

Study Smart Clinic

19 09 2008

The exam fever is back! And what better way to show our support to our participants than to organise a study smart clinic for them.

For the past two Wednesdays, the bunch from Springfield Secondary have been staying back in school to pick up some cool study techniques for their exam preparations.

Yup, the techniques were quite cool! Even the participants agreed. Just look at how excited they were. With all smiles and all…
