PAYM Loves Red 2014

PAYM Loves Red 2014 was launched by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean on 5 July 2014 at Sengkang CC. A total of 141 projects by the youth volunteers will be conducted during the span of 2 months and I am proud that Punggol CC YEC had organised 2 PAYM Loves Red in 2014.

PAYM Loves Red @ Community YOUthSparks
In conjunction with Bedok Reservior Punggol’s Red & White Picnic Under the Stars @ Hougang MRT station open field, Punggol CC YEC held its PAYM Loves Red @ Community YOUthSparks. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was the GOH of the event. PAYM Loves Red @ Community YOUthSparks had seen a total of close to 2,100 youth outreach on the day itself with close to 20 youth volunteers from Holy Innocents’ High School. There were a total of 12 life-size kampong games (which include eraser war big as 10 shoeboxes, pick up sticks as tall as 10 year old young kid, skipping ropes and more), photo taking booth, face-painting, balloon sculpturing, gift redemption counter for those who completed the Youth Challenge and musical performance by the youth groups(which includes Punggol CC IAEC, Cornflake City and Vincent Lum) at the Busking Corner.

It was also an honour to have PM Lee Hsien Loong visiting the YEC booth during his tour at the carnival to understand what the club has been doing so far and knowing what are the upcoming events. We also took the rare opportunity to present a gift for him and his wife that was handmade by us with a message from the youths after getting him to pen down his wishes for the youth! We also took a selfie with him just before he left!

PAYM Loves Red @ Holy Innocents’ High School
On 8 August 2014, Punggol CC YEC team went down to Holy Innocents’ High School to celebrate PAYM Loves Red @ HIHS. Punggol CC YEC stepped in this year to allow the 20 odds pioneer generation beneficiaries from the Lions Befriender to join in the annual fund-raising carnival and to celebrate Singapore’s 49th birthday! PAYM Loves Red shirt and a Singapore flag were also distributed to all secondary 2 students (whom run all the 30 odd carnival stores ranging from games to food sales). Bedok Reservoir-Punggol CCC chairman, Victor Lye, was also present that morning with the YEC members. The day was started with a parade by the school’s uniform groups in the school parade square following a National Day concert by various performance groups in the school hall.

Punggol CC YEC also distributed items like “Our People, Our Home” foldable fan, Singapore flag’s design pin, Singapore tattoo sticker and gift cards for students who “liked” our Facebook page!

SugarDe-Rush : Reducing the sugar intake (Project by students from HCI)

For the past 4 months, I have the fortune to be working with 4 brillant students, Glen Mun, Joseph Zhao, Sean Tay, Yong Zhi, from Hwa Chong Institution. They are working on a project called Sugar De-Rush. The aim of it is to raise awareness, educate the young and cultivate good habits. They came up with resource package which consists of workshops to Ai Tong Primary School, Information Card, Brochure, Windows Phone 7 Mobile Application.

An extract from the website:
“We are a group of students from Hwa Chong Institution who are doing a project called Sugar De-Rush. The problem of high sugar intake among Singaporeans is a pertinent one. Research conducted shows that children consume more sugar than recommended. Project Sugar De-rush aims to raise awareness of the dangers of high sugar intake and educate children aged 9 to 12 years old to monitor their eating habits. We hope to cultivate a good habit in them when they are young so as to prevent them from suffering from diseases in the future. This alarming problem needs to be addressed and our project is a resource package to help raise awareness of the dangers of high sugar intake.”

Below is the interview they had with Dr. Kelvin Tan, Vice-President of Diebetic Society on why sugar is bad.

All the best to SugarDe-Rush!
