I am happy to share that students from Holy Innocents’ High School ( HIHS @hihs_official ) has won several awards in the PAYM SLC Festival 2017. I was present to witness the ceremony. Minister Ong Ye Kung was the GOH for that afternoon. He presented the awards and specially mentioned the good work done by the students from HIHS in his speech. Phoebe and Jaynielle have both won the STAR Individual Award and Project Dough (2016) as well as Community YOUthSparks (2016) have clinched silver and gold team award respectively! The students from the Service Learning Club had organised the project themselves as part of their Service Learning Project together with Punggol CC YEC under Project Ignite 2016!
The Service Learning Club members work closely with the YECs to understand the needs of the community and implement projects that will benefit the community.
Looking forward for Project Ignite 2018!
Together with Holy Innocents’ High School, Punggol CC YEC co-organised Teens Conference 2017 in Holy Innocents’ High School today. This is the 3rd year that we have collaborated with HIHS and happy to have student leaders from various schools of Singapore coming together to make a change.
NECDC Mayor Mr Desmond Choo was present together with us and Cheng Lei moderated a panelist discussion. I was tagged to Mayflower Secondary School and they worked on the topic – Migrant Workers. The students went around the community collecting notes of thanks and encouragement for the migrant workers. They also presented their work when they returned back to school.
Below are some of the photos that I have taken.

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!
