Celebrating Christmas with Raffles Institution and St Joseph Institution
What is more blissful than the joy of giving? For the students of Raffles Institution (RI) and St Joseph Institution (SJI), they have gifted the children of Spright Academy (Cheng San branch) their time and companionship, making this Christmas a meaningful one.
On 19th December 2019 (Thursday), 17 students from RI and SJI organised a Christmas party for the children of Spright Academy (Cheng San branch). The party began with icebreaker games for the children to familiarise themselves with the volunteers. Christmas cards, in the shape of Christmas stockings, were also given to the children to write notes of well-wishes to their peers. Most importantly, you can't end a Christmas party without singing Christmas carols! The children, along with the volunteers, created wonderful performances based on the Christmas songs.
Meena, a staff of Spright Academy, expressed her appreciation towards the volunteers, “The student volunteers had been of great help whereby they offered to plan and execute this enjoyable Christmas party. Looking at the volunteers’ interaction and engagement with the children, I can see that the children had a great time.”
The Christmas party was not only gratifying for the children but even more so for the student volunteers. “It is very fulfilling to see the children slowly warm up to you. I have also learned to be more open and speak up more while mingling with the children,” said Joy, one of the volunteers from RI.
Spright Academy hopes that more volunteers can come forward to create more memorable events with the children and experience the joy of giving like that of the volunteers from RI and SJI.
