More parents sending children for ECA during school holidays

SINGAPORE: More parents are sending their children for extra—curricular activities during the school holidays.

Parents say this allows the kids to spend time in a fun and meaningful way.

Singing along to a "pizza song", these children pick up pizza—making skills from a restaurant chef.

The lyrics have been modified to help them remember the steps.

Some parents also joined in the sessions to bond with their children.

The chef says enrolment goes up by some 30 per cent during the school holidays.

And this year, he conducted five more classes to cater to the demand.

Those who prefer more active options enlisted into sports camps.

One training camp by the Singapore Table Tennis Association teaches children the basics of the game.

Through special exercises, the children — aged between seven and 10 — build up their stamina and increase their flexibility.

There are 20 to 30 children in each session.
