Kampong Days at BASIC Day 2018
The annual BASIC Day this year saw about 120 children from our three BASIC Student Care Centres in Ang Mo Kio, Cheng San and Sengkang and volunteers from NCS Pte Ltd travelling back in time to enjoy a day of fun and games back in the kampong.
On July 2, 2018 (Monday), the children fidgeted anxiously as they sat waiting for the bus to arrive at the centres. Their anticipation were evident as they hyped themselves up with a game of ‘Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar’ during the bus ride.
Arriving at recreation club, children from the three centres mingled with one another, before an instructor started the day with an energetic round of Zumba. Later, the children broke into their groups and each group had the chance to come up with their own moves, before combining their moves with the other groups to form a dance.
After a hearty lunch of pizza and cartoons, it was time for games! The NCS volunteers created and made games out of recyclable materials such as cardboard and paper, and prepared prizes for the children, as they rotated turns at the various game booths. As long as they participated in the games, the kids were each guaranteed a prize.
At the end of the day, every child went home with a bag full of goodies that included snacks, a sling bag and pairs of socks. Thank you very much NCS for giving our children yet another memorable Youth Day!
