Returning of Extension Assignment for The Meaning and Development of Play – BSc Cohort #1

Dear learners of cohort #1,

I am pleased to inform you that I have completed grading all your assignments and have them ready for your collection at the Wheelock Office.

I will not be able to join you for the farewell lunch tomorrow because my grandfather passed on earlier today.  Please collect your assignments from Mr. Jason Teo who has kindly agreed to assist with this during the lunch.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish each of you success and happiness in your future endeavours and “until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.” – excerpt from the irish blessing.

Congratulations! and I hope you see you at the commencement ceremony in June.

Best regards,



Jim Greenman will be missed

Dear Learners,

Just to let you know that Jim Greenman, the inspirational author and advocate for best environments for children and families passed on over the weekend.  It is a great loss to the field of early childhood education.  Please see the link below for further more details.
