“You’ve Got a Friend in Me”
Is your child’s birthday party merely a celebratory event? Now it can become a learning opportunity for your little one! JEMS Learning House, the renowned expert in Character Education for children up to the age of 12, is pleased to announce the official launch of its Plan-a-Party Programme in which birthday boys and girls will be guided to organize their own birthday party, giving them an opportunity to enhance their organization skills, sense of responsibility, concept about sharing and thankfulness.
The JEMS Learning House Plan-a-Party Programme is available in three party themes – Sharing, Friendship and Giving – specially designed for children of different ages. Within a period of four weeks, the participants will be asked to follow the guidelines of a workbook and their instructor to put together their own birthday party. The children have to put together the guest list, prepare the invitation cards and thank you cards, design their own party banner, plan party activities, write the thank you speech, prepare the shopping list and goodie bags, etc. The birthday boys and girls will be asked to complete a log book to record their effort and fond memories. During the two-hour party, JEMS will offer a one-hour fun and educational activity session for the enjoyment of the attending children.
Christine Ma, Founder and Principal of JEMS Learning House, says, “Letting children prepare their own birthday party lets them experience the joy of sharing. Through the preparation process, children learn that there are many things that they can do by themselves! This not only gives them confidence but a sense of responsibility too. Having to organize the party helps children understand they have to devote time and energy to what they want and should not take anything for granted.”
