St Andrew’s Junior College Class 10S09 Service Learning Project Lunar New Year Cheers – 12 February 2011


StAndrew2011On this joyous occasion, Class 10S09 from St Andrew’s Junior College shared their happiness with the less fortunate elderly. This project served two purposes:

  1. To bring warmth and cheers to the many elderly in need of our care and support.
  2. To raise awareness of the needs of the elderly and their caregivers through writing of their personal stories.
The students from Class 10S09 visited the elderly at their homes with New Year goodies and spent some quality time with the lonely elders.
