Today, one in five Singaporeans is above the age of 65. And the number is set to rise rapidly. The challenge for Singapore is how we keep our elderly healthy and fit. Our Nursing and Sport & Wellness Management students from SHS and SBM embarked on a study to find ways to do so. SG Enable initiated the project, which involved 25 seniors from the SilverACE Senior Activity Center at Lengkok Bahru. The 12-week field research conducted by our students recently concluded at the Inclusive Gym at the Enabling Village. Data from the study showed that the elderly participants experienced positive outcomes, with many expressing an interest to continue the exercise programme on their own.
Martina Veloso is our current Diploma in Sport and Wellness Management (DSWM) student who enrolled in 2016. She won Singapore's first shooting gold at the 2017 SEA Games and also represented Singapore in the ISSF World Cup, Youth Olympics, and Commonwealth Games. She is currently one of the world’s best and most promising talent in shooting.
Her passion for shooting started at the young age of 11, and she has since had to endure the tough journey of training 5 times a week. She is grateful to her lecturers and mentors who have given her full support and guidance. She is also thankful to have peers who are always cheering for her. All this has helped her to enjoy her learning experience at NYP.
