Lantern Making, 27th January 2018

Written by: Cheong Yew Chung, Asst Sixer & Scribe

It all started when I came to school, I knew this week it was my Six’s turn to set up the flag pole but surprisingly me and my sisters were the first to come.

So after a while we got the flag pole set up and did our colour party and got our meeting started. And just by seeing what we brought it was obvious what we were doing. So six by six and recruits we all went up to the pal room. As guessed we were making Chinese New Year lanterns. All of us were so excited, especially the recruits.                                                                                                                  
It took us a lot of time just to complete a lantern and some could not finish in time. After that, we sang some Chinese New Year songs. Then “Baloo”, one of our many adult leaders, told us that the week after the next, we would teach the elderly how to make lanterns and sing for them.          

After everything, we went down and did sunset party and went home. The Sixers, Assistant Sixers and Senior Sixers had to stay as there still was Sixers' council.                                                                                                                                              
I felt the fun of making beautiful Chinese New Year lanterns and singing Chinese New Year songs was just too much to explain. Hope the elderly like what we are doing for them the week after the next.
