It is already well known that students in Singapore face stress from examinations and from peer pressure.
However there are other kinds of stress lurking beneath the surface.
Students who are disabled, for instance, sometimes feel that they are a burden to others, or feel that there are insufficient facilities catered for them. They may feel the need for more opportunities to mix and study together with students from mainstream schools and wish they could be treated more normally.
Students from mainstream schools will be enriched by the interactions.
They will learn to appreciate people for who they are, respect differences and deal with diversity.
