Job Week for 3 Pelican cubs at National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS)

Job Week for 3 Pelican cubs at National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS)

For part of this year's Job Week, Jonathan Koong, Ryan Ng and Dominic Yap spent 2 days in one of the specialist onocology clinics at the National Cancer Centre Singapore (17 & 18 March 2011). They helped to get patients ready for their consultations by identifying them and moving them to wait right outside the consult room, pushing wheelchairs, transferring case files to the rooms, took weight and height measurements, scanning patient particulars, etc. Although this was hard work requiring all their concentration, the cubs had a fun and enriching time as well. And they made a bit of money too for their hard work, through a kind donation by the NCCS.

This stint was made possible by Mr Winston Tay, an executive in NCSS's Surgical Oncology Department who drew up a proposal, briefed the nurses, tested the IT system for communications between the cubs and nurses, and also supervised the boys.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to NCCS, and in particular to Mr Winston Tay for making this invaluable experience available to our cubs. Yas-ka Yas-ka Yas-ka!

We would also like to thank our 2 parents Mr and Mrs Koong Heng Nung (both specialists in NCCS) for initiating and facilitating this opportunity.
