The children were all ears and listened attentively to Ian, our invited artistic director for the day.

Cohesive and hardworking, the children attempted to recreate a stamp as one of the activity of the day.

A Journey to the World of Stamps!

10 Sep 2013

During the September school holidays, on 10 and 12 September 2013, some 26 children from Thye Hua Kwan FSC @ Tanjong Pagar (THK FSC), ISCOS and Casa Raudha Women Home joined us in two days of exploration and learning about communication.

Day one of the two-part series brought the children together at THK FSC. Facilitated by our interns, volunteers and an invited artistic director, the children were introduced to the intriguing world of stamps through a series of exciting activities and challenging games. Fascinated with the compelling nature of stamps at the end of the day, the children fostered better communication and learnt a great deal about the importance of stamps.

Building from the buzz generated on day one, day two brought the children to the Singapore Philatelic Museum where they embarked on an engaging tour. After learning about the origins as well as the importance of stamps, the children had the opportunity to tap into their creativity to create a postcard and post it back home. At the end of the day, the children left with wide smiles and a passionate interest for the art of philately.
