During the June holidays, Keppel volunteers organised a day of fun for our students at the Sports and Recreation Centre in Nanyang Technological University. The theme of the event was “SUPER HEROES,” where the sports-related activities taught our children the importance of communication and teamwork.
The event was mostly comprised of ten station games and a final relay race which pitted teams against one another. Shrieks of laughter reverberated in the hall as our students raced against time in a bid to secure the top spot for each station. We were moved to see that these volunteers were not only the organizers of an event, but were also role models for our children. They were keen to interact with our students and constantly cheered them on as they were playing the games.
We would like to thank Keppel for making this Sports Day event a success. Because of volunteers like those from Keppel, our children were able to relish in new experiences. It is our sincere wish to see more volunteers giving our students valuable opportunities to learn and grow beyond the walls of their classrooms.
The important work of Epworth Community Services is funded primarily by generous well- wishers who strongly believe in our cause.read more
