Led by Community Services, the Jubilee Children Carnival was a joint effort between the Buona Visa Commonwealth Crescent RC and COOS.

The Carnival also served as a great outreach platform for Community Services to team up with other ministries for the event. We had a fantastic time working alongside with Urbankidz, the English Youth, Soaring Eagles Club, Tuition for Heartlanders, Arrows and the English Cell group. There were 180 volunteers in all!

For all 238 children from the surrounding neighborhood, it was a time of play. With the exams out of the way, there was a definitive festive feel in the air. The children were issued with Carnival tickets that they could use to receive a goodie bag each. They could also collect stamps in their Carnival passports to redeem more gifts.

There were bouncy dinosaur inflatables, different game stalls made from recyclable materials, and an arts & craft section where children of all ages could choose between making a badge, a bookmark, folding an origami or colouring.

Apart from play options, there was food ranging from ice cream to candy floss and kacang puteh to popcorn. We also had interactive booths represented by the Singapore Police Force and the National Environment Agency to educate the children and spark their interest in important topics.

Celebrating the present (SG50) while looking into the future gave the children the opportunity to make their marks with handprints as well as offer well-wishes to Singapore on a board at the SG100 station. The board will be given to the RC as a keepsake as we look forward to Singapore’s next 50 years.

No carnival will be complete without colorfully painted children. There were stalls offering face painting services, glitter tattoos, balloon sculpting and portrait sketching. All this added to the excitement of the event.

A Kendama competition was held with 35 participants competing for prized branded Kendamas to be won. This trending recreational sport was a hit with children of all ages. The children from the community were especially excited for the opportunity to showcase their skills in one of the first of such competitions initiated in the neighborhood.

The Carnival ended on a high with every child taking home a bag of goodies filled to the brim with gifts and a satisfied smile on their faces.

“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17 (NKJV)

To God be the glory!
