Published on Jun 7, 2014 7:36 PM

The People's Association launched a series of hour-long courses on Saturday at its Community Day celebration at Bugis+ mall.

The lessons will be held on weekdays and offer activities such as scrapbooking, salad-making and paper quilling. They will be priced up to $10 although over-60s will have to pay a flat rate of just $3.

The Association's chief executive director Mr Ang Hak Seng said residents had told him they wanted "short and modular" courses that fit around their daily activities.

Currently, most PA courses run in the evenings at community clubs with sessions of up to three hours that go on for several months.
