Our Parents, Our Inspiration

On Saturday 19 March 2016, some of our parent support group members and their children gathered at the garden beside Block 759, Chua Chu Kang North 5 for the annual Garden Harvesting event organised by the CCK Zone 8 RC. Together with the RC volunteers, they worked hand in hand harvesting vegetables such as lettuce and pak choy. 

Mr Eric Lim, our SAC Chairman who was also there to grace the occasion, gave our parent volunteers a ‘thumbs up’ for taking the time on a weekend to serve the community.  Indeed, they are the role models for our pupils who in turn learnt the various names of the different types of vegetables.

“It is a perfect parent-child bonding activity. It is also a great way to teach our kids the importance of eating healthy fruits and vegetables. Not only do the children learn about harvesting vegetables, they enjoyed the hands-on experience.” Mrs Aruna Mascarenhas, mother of Amish Andy Mascarenhas, 6 Perseverance.
