Performing For The Elderly - L


Past 2 Saturdays, L has been back in her kindergarten to rehearse for the performance. Children from the Principal's class were asked if they would like to perform for the elderly around the neighbourhood, organised by the School Church Community Services. Of coz L was most willing too. She remembered she did that last year when she was in the other school. The other time, they got a chance to interact with the elderly too..

I always like the idea of her (& Z) helping out, be it volunteering for the elderly or young ones. It gives them the opportunity to know that there are people around us that needs help and they should help whenever they can. When they are older, I wish we can volunteer together and we can do other things besides performing. It is good way to bond as a family too.

We were at school by 1.15pm and the aunties in the school dressed them up. Then the principal did a final round rehearsal before the bus picked us up to Meritus Mandarin. The dance is almost the same as what they did for their annual concert.

It was thoughtful of the church members and the principal to arrange the kids to be there 15mins before the performance. The kids didn't have to wait long for their turn :) While waiting, L saw those Uncles that was from VK. She greeted almost everyone of them :) They were happy to see her too and took pics of her and the rest of the kids.


The video consists of pics and videos.

While I was filming their performance, I overheard the elderly commenting that they were happy to see the little ones performing for them and was wondering how old was the kids. Being a kapoh, I told them they were all 6 yrs old. They were impressed with their performance and I was glad that the elderly enjoyed their performance and brought smiles to their face :)

Sweetie, you did a very good job! :) Mommy is proud of you! She told me that they will have a present after the performance and I explained to her she is doing this not for the present but to cheer the elderly up. When it was over, we went over to Ngee Ann City to meet up with LZdaddy and Z. They have been shopping while waiting for us. Yes :) Both my men love shopping!
