40 volunteers planned the activities and paid a visit to the CapitaLand Muchuan Green Hope School in Sichuan, China's first green Hope School during the Mid-Autumn festival period. Over the three days, our volunteers planned out a series of events for over 200 students in the school.
On the first day, students and volunteers were split into six groups and were assigned various tasks to complete in order to score points. The first task and also the icebreaker was to replace the old desks and chairs in the classrooms. The students were then tasked to collect the rubbish from this activity and categorise them into the correct bins based on a short presentation conducted by the volunteers.
The next day, the groups continued to complete task three - putting together models of CapitaLand's iconic buildings with materials provided. These iconic buildings include Raffles City Chongqing, Raffles City Chengdu, Raffles City Hangzhou, Raffles City Shenzhen, Suzhou Center and Interlace in Singapore. The next task was to prepare the food and decorations for the Mid-Autumn celebrations that night, also the highlight of the visit! During the celebrations, students and teachers from the school as well as volunteers put up a series of hearwarming performances and ended off with a mass singing with fireworks.
On the final day of the visit, volunteers organised a table tennis themed sports carnival. The day ended off with a prize presentation for the groups and home visits to some of the students.
