School Camp 2017
School Camp 2017 took place on 15 and 16 September. The camp was organised mainly for our graduating students and students from the High Support Programme. The objective of this camp was to boost confidence and instil responsibility in these students. It was also aimed at developing leadership qualities in the students from the Functional Programme. An Amazing Race was organised on the first day and campers enjoyed pool activities at the Wild Wild Wet water park on the second day. Our students were also given the opportunities to make their own barbeque dinner and pancakes for breakfast. Overall, the camp was a success and the campers enjoyed it.
School Camp 2016
There was a buzz of excitement as the Cub Scouts and the teachers made their way to the Civil Service Club at Tessensohn. They were going to participate in a rock-climbing activity at the club! The Cub Scouts were greeted by the friendly instructors. After wearing the safety gear and shoes, the Cub Scouts watched a demonstration on ascending and descending the climb in a safe way. After that, they were all good to go!
The initial apprehension was forgotten as the boys and girls approached the climb with enthusiasm. Throughout the 1.5 hours activity, they displayed a lot of resilience when they were in action and the thought of giving up never crossed their minds. We are so proud of all of you, Helang Scouts!
After lunch, we proceeded over to Bright Hill Evergreen Home. The stage was set up for the Scouts to put up 2 song performances (The More We Get Together and the Chinese song ‘Yue Liang Dai Bian Wo De Xin’). The elderly clapped to the rhythm of the songs and their faces lit up as the Scouts went around presenting them with goodie bags packed with 3-in-1 coffee and biscuits. They also conducted the Bingo game, a favourite game of the elderly. The Helang Scouts and the elderly had a fun-filled afternoon. A donation of $246 from the Scouts’ fundraising efforts was presented to the home.
At the end of this eventful day, everyone was tired but they brought home with them wonderful memories.
