Held on 21 October 2009 at Yuan Ching Secondary School hall, this was the first time that a whole school activity was held at a large venue outside the school. With preparation and a dry run prior to the event, the students did the school proud by staying engaged amidst the noise and crowd. Students took part in relays that they had been practicing during Physical Education sessions in school. Every one of the students who took part went home with a medal. Parents who took time off to support the event were seen excitedly cheering their child on. Some even took to the floor to urge their child on.
The event was sponsored by StarHub Sparks Fund. Besides a very generous donation of $200k to the Eden School Building Fund, StarHub volunteers came out in full force to support the event, from manning the prize and refreshment tables, running alongside the students to giving out goodie bags to all participants.
Students and teachers from Jurongville Secondary School helped organize the event. The event could not have been such a resounding success if not for the concerted support of so many community partners. And of course, not forgetting the teachers and parents who believed that their students / children would step up to the many challenges that they had to face that day. Thank You to everyone who have helped the school take a big leap of faith.
