RAS publishes Happy Toilets @ Preschools Booklet & Handbook to mark 20th anniversary
In collaboration with Dyson Airblade hand dryer distributor VISO Pte, the Restroom Association Singapore has developed a booklet and handbook to mark its 20th anniversary.
The two publications were launched recently at Cherie Hearts @ Charlton by Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Social and Family Development.
The booklet is an activity booklet for children to 'Have Fun, Be Happy & Stay Healthy' by cultivating good toilet habits. It educates the children about showing kindness to cleaning attendants and understanding interesting toilet names, toilet signages, germs and good toilet habits. Games and activities such as word puzzle, maze, spot the differences, connecting the dots, etc. are incorporated to make learning fun for the children.
The handbook is a guidebook for teachers and parents aimed at providing them with the necessary knowledge and resources to engage children on effective hygiene education. Learning points for children are provided for every game and activity. This includes a history of toilets, dos and don'ts, types of germs and fun steps of hand washing.
There is also a segment on projects and activities for teachers and parents to engage with their children.
The children at Cherie Hearts @ Charlton also participated in a 'Keep Clean, Go Green' activity on the eight steps of hand washing together with staff of VISO. Children dried their hands with Dyson Airblade hand dryers instead of paper towels, not only to go green but also to lessen the cleaning attendants' workload of regularly clearing litter bins.
