EMBRACING ACTIVE AGEING AT YISHUN RIVERWALK
Last Sunday (4 Mar) Pacific Activity Centre @Yishun Riverwalk members celebrated ‘Embracing Active Ageing’ with Minister Ong Ye Kung (Minister for Education and Second Minister for Defence).
Minister Ong was presented a memento made by the seniors. The memento symbolizes togetherness of the seniors in embracing active ageing and kampong spirit. The multi-coloured fabric represents the seniors of different background and races. And the centre button represents Pacific Activity Centre as an instrument to bind the community to age-in-place and age gracefully.
Director and Founder of PAC, Dr William Chong signed a MOU with Republic Polytechnic (RP) during the event. PAC will be funding a research programme and two scholarships for the RP students.
The event also showcases watercolour paintings and Smartphone Photography done by our senior participants. The seniors also try out balloon sculpting with volunteers and bracelet making with ITE College East.
