Engagement with the community
West Springers’ artwork for Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub
On 30th August 2018, 40 West Spring Primary School students proudly launched the artwork created for Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub in collaboration with SMRT. The artwork featured on the video wall ranges from drawings, paintings and sand art videos with the theme, “Graciousness on Public Transport”. The artwork reflects acts of graciousness while commuting and reveals students’ view of the transport system through their unique perspectives.
Creating Opportunities for our West Springers
Our Heartland Ambassadors had the opportunity to engage residents in our community in a meaningful project entitled TIES (Time to Invigorate and Enhance Relationships) on 6 July and 14 September 2018.
TIES was initiated to benefit the community by bringing people of all ages together, through fostering better relations within the community through activating community spaces.
Residents were impressed with our Heartland Ambassadors, who had carried out their roles and responsibilities professionally and enthusiastically. Before taking on the tasks, they went through four hours of training sessions.
The Heartland Ambassadors are looking forward to contributing their time and services again. They are grateful for the opportunities given to them to broaden their horizons, develop their confidence and hone their social and communication skills.
