AOPL staff took time off from daily work schedules for a day of bonding and sharing with some of Singapore’s underprivileged school children from four Mentoring schools – A total of 52 students, accompanied by 34 RSVP volunteers (the organization of senior volunteers) in the Mentoring Programme and 42 staff from Aluminium Offshore, went on a learning journey to Marina Barrage.
The afternoon started with a brief tour of the Marina Barrage Gallery where the children learnt about the history of Singapore’s water resources. Next was the highlight of the day – kite making! The volunteers guided students to make and decorate mini-kites, and flew their kites on the roof garden of Marina Barrage. It was a good learning and bonding experience for all. A light hearted day with a lot of laughs and comical scenes for sure.
“It was definitely an eye opening experience for many of us. We are so happy that we can do something for the community that we live in,” said Neelesh Uppal, Managing Director of Aluminium Offshore.
