'Zoo Out' for a good
visit to the Animal Land at the Children's World
was a highlight of the outing as the children
examined the animals up close.
TWENTY-NINE students and two lecturers from Temasek
Business School spent half a sunny Saturday at the Singapore
Zoological Gardens on Jan 14 with 17 Lakeside Primary
School children. The children were from the Starkidz!
Programme of Children-At-Risk-Empowerment
Association (CARE). CARE is a
voluntary welfare organisation which reaches out to
children at risk of academic failure, behavioural problems,
emotional maladjustment, suicidal tendencies and juvenile
Funded by TP as well as donations received from students
and lecturers, the trip named Zoo Out! was
a community service project organised by members of
the Accounting & Finance Interest Group. The objective
was to give the students first-hand experience in community
involvement and at the same time, bring fun and
cheer to underprivileged children. Joanne Tan, a second-year
student, said: The outing has enabled me to interact
with children and understand them better.
