The ‘Largest Singapore Map made from Canned Food’ Record
During the 2014 Chinese New Year celebrations, East View Secondary School students played a part in making a difference to the elderly residing in one-room rental flats in Chai Chee as well as needy families for the Food From The Heart organisation. Staff and students donated food items including Chinese New Year goodies and Mandarin oranges to be donated to these elderly folks. On the day of the celebrations, students packed food hampers, designed cards and made lanterns. Students then personally distributed these food hampers to the homes of the elderly at Chai Chee Road.
The rest of the food raised was packed into goodie bags and donated to Food From The Heart which channelled these food items to needy families. Since 2013, the school has successfully collaborated with both parties through various meaningful endeavours. This act of compassion is part of the school’s CNY celebrations as we consciously strive to remember the needy in our celebrations. Such a project brings forth the true meaning of CNY for both our students and staff and brings joy to the less fortunate. East View Secondary School has been a partner of Food From The Heart for four years. In 2013, the school managed to set the record of the “Largest Map Formation Made form Canned Food’.
