It had been an exciting year having Yumin Primary School with Tampines East Zone 1 RC organising activities to benefit the community and the environment.
6 bins aesthetically painted by Yumin pupils for the “National Litter Free Programme” launched on National Day were placed around the Tampines East Zone 1 precinct. This creates a change in the traditional image of rubbish bins in our garden city and helps to promote anti-littering.
In the effort of saving our Earth, Yumin pupils participated in the “Recycling Day” project held in July and August with Tze Ji Foundation. Together with other volunteers, the students helped to collect recycled items from the residents and gave them information on the importance of recycling and saving Mother Earth. This project hopes to embrace recycling as part of our daily practice.
On 5th October, students under the Financial Assistance Scheme celebrated Children’s Day in Popular bookstore to pick out useful gifts with a given budget of $15. This event, “Make my Day”, gave the students valuable lesson on budgeting and a real-life experience in managing their resources and making timely decisions. The students appreciated the sponsor’s effort and enjoyed their Children’s Day tremendously.
We look forward to having more meaningful events and activities in the upcoming year, partnering with other stakeholders within the community to create a more vibrant and inclusive society.
