Camp WIN - Christmas Party 2014

Tan Chor Hoon

A 1-day Christmas Party, organized by Project WIN, was held on 22nd December 2014 at Rainbow Centre Margaret Drive School. With the help of our volunteers, 25 of our athletes showed interests and participated in the party. This event serves as a platform of interaction between the mainstream and the athletes with intellectual disabilities, enabling them to understand each other better.


The athletes were randomly divided into groups. Each group consist of 6 athletes and every athlete present were paired up with a volunteer. The party started off the morning with Introduction, Name tag Designing, the Amazing Race followed by Christmas Card Writing. During the party, the participants also celebrated the birthday of one athlete. The highlight was the Prize Presentation, where each pair (Athletes and Volunteer) will go up to the stage and the volunteer will present the stocking that the athlete designed, filled with sweets, to the athlete.


We sincerely thank Rainbow Centre Margaret Drive School for opening up their facilities, Project WeINspire for organizing the party and the athletes.
