This is the first time the K2s of PCF Sparkletots Preschool @ Nanyang Blk 934 participating in the Start Small Dream Big (SSDB) 2017 project.
Our objective in participating this project is to get our students with their teachers and parents to work together in collecting donations in kind from the students ‘ family and donate them to the residents of the NTUC Health Nursing Home @ Jurong West.
We got a list of items that are needed by the residents and we wrote to the parents of our students asking them to donate the items.
On 3 August 2017, our K2A children and with the help of our parent support group (PSG) members, started to sort and pack the various items.
On 8 August 2017, we brought all the items over to the Home. This time our K2B children with the parent support group members visited the Home and we had an interactive session with the residents there. The children with the PSG’s worked together with the residents to create musical instruments from recycled materials.
We also had the honor of having Mr Yee Chia Hsing, MP for Choa Chu Kang GRC to distribute the goodie bags to the residents.
Our children also had the opportunity to perform two mass workouts and also danced for the residents while the residents play their musical instruments to the song ‘Chan Mali Chan’
It was heartening to see that the children with the PSG’s as well as the residents of the NTUC Health Nursing Home enjoyed their moments together. We are very encouraged by the response and we will continue to support and collaborate with the Home on future projects.
