It was 10 July 2021, Saturday, 8am, drizzling. 

In conjunction with the planting “One Million trees” movement, we were honoured to be invited to a tree-planting session with DPM Heng Swee Kiat. Wu laoshi, Mrs Yong, Mrs Sive and I were grateful that we would be planting trees in our own ‘backyard’ – a block away from YWCA Preschool @ Bedok, doing a part in greening our community. 

Though it was a gloomy morning, we were even more grateful to be able to spend some precious moments with DPM Heng, who was very appreciative of the work and effort that we have put in. We shared about the extra safety measures we have put in place as well as educating our students on the habits of washing hands and putting on masks. We also shared that parents were understanding in keeping their children at home if they have a cough or runny nose.

As a team, we finally planted two trees in front of Blk 27 New Upper Changi Road. We whistled a silent prayer that our students would grow up strong like the trees!
