Singapore, 29 June 2015 – Nexia TS Citizens woke up to an extraordinary day on 19 June 2015. Setting aside work, they made their way to Gardens by the Bay for a fun-filled day with children from Xin Yuan Community Care and Students Care Service.

The event started with shy smiles and soft voices as the staff and children get to know one another. They then set off on an enjoyable race to play as many games as they could at stations manned by staff around the area. Within a short period of time, the children and staff had formed special bonds as they played and laughed together.
12 main games and 4 mini games were prepared in total. These fun games ranged from easy (eg. counting the number of decorative ants) to difficult (eg. picking up beads with chopsticks). A few ‘Photo Hunt’ games were played inside the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest as the children were encouraged to learn more about the plants and the ecosystem.
Through the games, the children learned the importance of teamwork and how everyone in the group can work well together. For instance, in the ‘Capteh Game’, the children who fared better could be seen assisting those who were struggling to kick the shuttlecock. It was a fruitful and wonderful experience for both the staff and children.
“We may not be strong on our own. Together, we are definitely stronger. ”
Henry Tan, Managing Director, Nexia TS
The event ended with lunch and a simple prize presentation ceremony. Each child went home with a goodie bag and a prize with the top 3 teams receiving additional small presents for their efforts and commitment. As for the staff, everyone went home with smiles on their faces and the memory of a day well spent.
