Lasallian Day Out! March Edition

LEAD Story 296

The recent Lasallian Day Out! was held on 18 March 2019. Students from St Anthony’s Primary School, De La Salle School, SJI Junior, St Stephen’s School and the Lasallian Mentoring Programme were treated to half a day of fun. The students and teachers met at SJI Junior for some ice breakers before heading to Junction 8 Golden Village together with their new friends. They were treated to the movie Wonder Park while enjoying pop corn and coke, all of which were sponsored by SJI Foundation.

This day would not have been possible without the support of staff from the various primary schools, the organising team, LYNKsters as well as volunteers from SJI. For the June holidays, the planned Lasallian Day Out! will be on 27 June. We will be bringing the primary school students to SuperPark Singapore, a newly opened indoor activity park at Suntec City.

Lasallian Day Out! brings the less privileged students from St. Joseph’s Institution Junior, St. Stephen’s School, De La Salle School, St. Anthony’s Primary School and the Lasallian Mentoring program out for a day of fun. Held during each school holiday, the event aims to give these children a memorable day during their holidays which they can share with their friends when they return to school. We hope to not only give them the chance to participate in an unforgettable activity, but also to encourage them to make new friends, especially with other Lasallians of their age. Lasallian Day Out! was initiated by delegates from APLYC 2017 working under the umbrella of Lasallian Youth NetworK (LYNK). (Lin Wenkang/Ed-Linddi Ong)
