Connecting the Community through Recycling
Healthy Start Child Development Centre took part in Preschool Market’s SG Kindred Garden as part of their Start Small Dream Big project this year. 54 children from Nursery 1 to Kindergarten 2 worked together to turn unwanted items like egg crates, cardboards, toilet rolls, old socks and others into beautiful pieces of art. The children were very involved in the conceptualization and making of the art pieces.
The art work was put up as an exhibition at Singapore Repertory Theatre's (SRT)’s showing of The Nightingale on 7 April 11am. Singapore Repertory Theatre generously sponsored the children and families of Healthy Start Child Development Centre to the show to mark the launch of SG Kindred Garden. Indeed, SG Kindred Garden, supported by Our SG Fund was of the similar spirit as The Nightingale, it was a celebration of friendship, building community and love and care for nature. Guest-of-Honour Deputy Secretary (Community, Youth & Sports), Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, Mr Philip Ong was encouraged by this meaningful initiative to inculcate a love for the environment from a young age. He shared that by being more conscious of how our actions can affect those around us and the environment, we can take active steps to build a kinder and more gracious society.
Through support by various community partners and preschools, the vision of connecting the community through recycling and protecting our environment is within our reach. For more information on the initiative, please visit www.kindredgarden.sg
