Paper Weaving Basket
Paper weaving basket.png

Weaving is an ethnically diverse form of craft. A very prominent example of a weaving product is a basket. Why especially baskets? The craft of weaving baskets plays a significant role as an icon for both culture and ethnicity.  This embraces the value of diversity. 


Next, weaving is a craft that is easily learnt. As a community in Singapore, we must seek to weave inclusivity in our society, regardless of the needy, the disabled or the elderly. 


We can use a fruit basket as a comparison to the community. Every fruit needs to be included in the basket to transform it into a beautiful fruit basket. Likewise, it is only when everybody is included (the disabled, needy and elderly), then we are able to transform into a beautiful community. A basket is also used to hold and carry things. Hence, as teachers or parents, we want to carry every child through their growing years, embracing their diverse needs.
