Rotary FSC celebrated its 20th Anniversary and Family Day 2017 on 6 May with funfilled activities for the whole family at West Coast Park. Ms Low Yen Ling, Mayor of South West District and Senior Parliamentary Secretary for MOE and the Ministry of Trade and Industry, was the Guest-of-Honour for the event. As part of the celebrations, Ms Low launched Rotary FSC’s latest initiative – SuperSTUDENTS!
The initiative provides financial support to primary and secondary school children from low-income families and comprises bursaries for resilient children who perform well in their studies whilst coping with difficult circumstances at home. Presenting bursaries to 28 deserving students, Ms Low said that such efforts can only take place with support from sponsors, volunteers, and community partners. “We need the community to collaborate resources and capabilities to empower and build resilience in underprivileged children and families. The efforts of Rotary FSC alone is not enough. Just as ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, we need everyone to play a role in weaving a strong net of support for those at risk.”
At the event, Ms Low also presented tokens of appreciation to Rotary FSC’s donors, event sponsors, community partners, and volunteers
