It seems like we just celebrated the new year yesterday and here we are, on the cusp of the first block of school holidays. Yes, it’s just a week to the marvellous March holidays, and if you’re that parent scratching your head about what to do with your kids during the break, here are some ideas to get you excited!

1. Learn Financial Management at Money Junior Camp Singapore
