Our last CSR activity with Chua Chu Kang Zone 2 RC senior residents took place last Friday, 7 June 2019. We made a video to reminisce old times with them. From the food factory visit in July last year to the fitness cum game themed activity in March this year, we’re grateful that most of the seniors can remember us and also the fun we had!
We started the day with pairing of our staffs and seniors and a light chair exercise conducted by Roy, our FiTSA Head. It’s easy and it will help seniors to stretch and exercise their muscles, anytime anywhere – just on the chair. We are honoured to have Mr Gan Kim Yong, Grassroots Adviser to Chua Chu Kang GROs, Minister for Health and MP for Chua Chu Kang GRC to join us over lunch together with the seniors. We had “healthier choice” lunch buffet and enjoyed the video together. The room was filled with chatter and laughter! Both Mr Gan and our GM, Koh Yong Jin gave out vouchers to the seniors for their groceries shopping. After lunch and a group photo, we bid farewell to Mr Gan as we are heading to the NEWater Visitor Centre (NVC) for a tour.
For most of us, it’s the first time visiting NVC. We are all curious how NEWater is being produced and how do we sustain precious water for our water scarce country. We were brought to different sections by the tour guide to understand how water molecule undergo treatment, discover membrane and ultraviolet technologies and explore sustainability. We also participated in the raingarden workshop, the seniors learnt how raingardens function through building their own mini-raingardens.
It was yet another enriching and engaging experience for our staffs and the seniors. We enjoyed one another’s company and conversations about life and experiences. We are thankful that our path crossed and wished the seniors a blessed and happy life ahead.
