PCF Sparkletots Celebrates Singapore World Water Day

Singapore, 17 March 2018 – PCF Sparkletots celebrates Singapore World Water Day at Our Tampines Hub. The community event, themed “We Make Every Drop Count” was organised by PCF Sparkletots North East District 3 and supported by PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency. The event was graced by Guest-of-Honour, Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources.

During the event, Minister Masagos Zulkifli toured the various activity booths and led PCF Sparkletots children to recite the “We Make Every Drop Count” Pledge. Some 400 pre- schoolers from PCF Sparkletots North East District 3 were present, together with family and friends to join in the festivities and pledge their support for Singapore World Water Day. PCF Sparkletots children put together performances and showcased their water conservation efforts. At the event, prizes were also given out to winners of the “We Make Every Drop Count” Colouring Contest. Through this event, PCF Sparkletots aims to raise awareness on the importance of water in our community.

As part of their “Start Small Dream Big” (SSDB) project this year, PCF Sparkletots pre- schoolers from Tampines West will participate in projects related to water conservation. Such activities include door-to-door visits in their neighbourhood to share about water saving tips, a water rationing exercise, and a visit to the NEWater Visitor Centre. The SSDB project is an initiative by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) which encourages pre- schoolers to innovate, problem-solve and tap on their unique strengths to help others.

PCF CEO, Mr Victor Bay said, “At PCF Sparkletots, we are always looking at ways to help our children to engage with the wider community. I am delighted to see our children learning and sharing important values such as caring for the environment and saving water from a young age. These initiatives are part of the PCF Sparkletots curriculum which aims to nurture children as they grow into responsible citizens and life-long learners.”
