Project Love 2014


On 25 Jan 2014 (Sat), at about 7.45am, a group of 43 students, 16 teachers and 7 parent volunteers were already in the school, ready to do their part for the community.  It was the day that we will deliver the carefully-wrapped hampers to the families in our community who needed a helping hand.

 

Working with SW CDC, Jurong Central GRC and Jurong Central Zone E RC, all our P5 students, entire staff and Parent Support Group (PALS) contributed the items for 58 hampers.  The students and staff worked together to wrap the hampers.  A select group of students (including the scouts and brownies) will personally deliver the hampers to the homes of these families under the supervision of the teachers accompanied by the Zone E RC members.  The Member of Parliament for Jurong Central GRC Mr Ang Wei Neng was also present to deliver some of the hampers together with our students and staff.

 

We hope that through this project, we will inculcate in our staff and students, the values of Care and Respect for one another in our community.

 

We would like to thank all our teachers, staff, parents and students who have contributed to the success of this project.
