Our Campaign Story

ends 15 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM

Throughout June and July, NUS students plan and organise engagements with charity programmes under various Social Service Agencies (SSAs). They then participate in Flag Day, where students travel all over Singapore on 2 separate days to flag for donations from the public. The proceeds are disbursed by Community Chest to the SSAs whom our students engaged with over the summer.

This year, Dentistry Flag's partner SSA is Pathlight School. Pathlight School is the first autism-focused school in Singapore that offers Singapore's national curriculum together with life readiness skills. It caters to students on the autism spectrum with related conditions, aged 7 to 18 years, who are cognitively able to access mainstream academic curriculum but require additional support such as smaller class sizes, special accommodations and teaching staff trained in autism.

On top of flagging and organising a fundraiser selling Dentistry themed merchandise designed by our incoming Year 2 undergraduates, Dentistry Flag along with Year 1 and Year 2 undergraduate volunteers will be carrying out a workshop for Pathlight Students in end June to increase awareness on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and to equip them with the relevant skills needed to practise good oral hygiene.
