Part-time Work Opportunity
A non-profit organisation which runs an award winning kindergarten program www.thinkequal.com in Singapore, is looking for a part-time Program Coordinator. The program is run in 20 kindergartens here. AutumnLife assists to relay their message as follows:
We're now looking for a part-time coordinator to work only 1 day a week. The role is to visit these kindergartens and get feedback from the principals on how the program is progressing at their respective kindergartens. And, send brief reports back online.
As this is a non-profit social program the Coordinator is given a monthly stipend. Working hours can be flexible as long as the work is done. Candidate needs to be genuinely interested in education and children. Good communication in English is needed.
Retired teachers would be ideal but not compulsory.
AutumnLife members who are interested in the role, and all enquiries on this, please write to Jacksim@worldtoilet.org directly. Respond ASAP as training starts in last week of November.
(AutumnLife is not related to and does not have any stake in the above-mentioned kindergarten program.)
Life After 50 Seminar - 16 Sep 2017
Three engaging speakers, each an active ager with a mission and a message – Autumn Life members had the chance to get inspired by them at the Life After 50 Seminar on Saturday 16 September 2017.
Helen Lim, CEO of Silver Spring and a well-known pioneer of the active ageing movement, Chng Kai Jin, former general manager of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and Doris Lung, former managing director of Bausch and Lomb (Singapore and Malaysia) were the stars of the show.
Each of them focused on a different but equally important aspect of living well after age 50: employment and “elder-preneurship”, keeping the mind engaged and active, and staying healthy through physical activity. Read more...

Chit-Chat@AutumnLife on 3 May 2017
Chit-Chat with Dr Charles Lim at The Larder Cafe
Looking at his upright posture, healthy complexion and pony-tailed grey hair, you would know that Dr Charles Lim is a different kind of 75-year-old. He’s also the one brave Autumn Life member who agreed to kick off our Chit-Chat @ AutumnLife series.
Over afternoon tea, our good doctor set out to describe his simple formula for living well.
He still runs a clinical practice, but his views on healthy living clearly draw on experiences and observations beyond his medical training. Read more...
