SSDB- Upcycling Wonderous Hands

Activity 1: Caring for our Environment -

Beach Clean Up with Parents at Sembawang Park

On 31st May 2023, K2 children from Small Wonder Nordcom II embarked their SSDB journey with a introductory activity with a Beach Clean Up at Sembawang Park together with their parents. They worked together in groups to pick up litter and sort them into trash and recycbles. This activity not only created a strong bond between the children and parents but also reinforced their understanding Upcycling as well as our SSDB’s focus on Caring for our community.

Activity 3: Small Wonder Visits Minds (I)

On 13th July, our K2 children visited MINDS at Woodlands Garden. There, they played an icebreaker game to remember each other before they break into their small groups. Once they were in their assigned groups, they drafted a bag design before creating the actual bag using the assorted materials.

Activity 7: The Fundrasing Event Hosted by Small Wonder K2 children

After tremendous effort put in to create the Upcycled Bags, the K2’s hosted a fundraiser to sell their creation to the parents of all level children of Small Wonder. The event took place on 5th October 2023 from 4 p.m to 5.30 p.m. As it coincided with our Children’s Day Celebration, children were dressed in their favourite Disney costumes to welcome the parents. They boldly took on the roles of ushers, promoters and cashiers. The outcome of the event was fabulous!!
