More than 200 PCF Sparkletots families gathered at the Raffles’ Landing Site, along Singapore River on 4 May 2019 for a special Bicentennial event organized by PCF Sparkletots @ Tanjong Pagar Blk 1E.
The Parent-Child Singapore Bicentennial Trail was held in celebration of the Singapore Bicentennial this year. PCF’s Assistant CEO, Ms Tan Lee Jee; District Head, Mr Francis Tan and Executive Principal, Ms Karen Lee joined in the fun to support our spontaneous children and their families.
The immersive and interactive heritage trail brought our children and their parents back in time to learn about the key moments in Singapore’s transformation. Our N1 to K2 sparkletots had a ball of time exploring Singapore’s rich history through fun station games that took them to various momentous spots such as the Raffles’ Landing Site, The Cenotaph, Civilian War Memorial, Anderson Bridge, Cavenagh Bridge and Lim Bo Seng Memorial.

Children were tasked to complete simple quests such as spotting the difference, doing the Singapore workout, completing a word search and answering questions relating to Singapore’s history, together as a family. Once completed, they were given a clue to travel to the next station. During their quest, each child was given an ice-cream and Vitagen to reward them for completing the station activities.
Learning together is one of the best ways connect and bond with each other. Children also learn best when parents, teachers and other family members are involved in their education journey. Parents shared that they had a fulfilling day learning and bonding with their children. Both children and parents gained a better understanding of the hard work that went into shaping the Singapore that it is today.

This fun day-out also taught our future generation to take pride in our heritage and grow up understanding that they too, have to play a part in building the nation. The families were also given a mega D.I.Y car and airplane sponsored by Family Life Champion (FLC), as a gift of appreciation for their participation.
This meaningful parent-child event will not be possible without the support from our co-organiser, Character and Leadership Academy and FutuReady Asia (Singapore).
