Below are the images and reflection done by Stingray patrol on their Project Scubilion 2019:
“We found this year’s Project Scubilion to be a very meaningful and enjoyable activity. For our Project Scubilion, we went to the Society for the Aged Sick and hosted our own games and activities to entertain the elderly. We carried out many activities such as teaching them basic english vowels and words, puzzles and even singing. We managed to learn a lot from our interactions with the elderly. We found the elderly there to be very inspiring as even though they were all old and some of them were disabled and not in the best of health, they still made the effort to participate in the activities we planned and had a positive attitude towards the activities. We were very satisfied and happy when we saw that we could put a smile on the elderly’s faces, or when we could tell that they were enjoying themselves.
Even though we had to improvise a few times to make the activities more fun for the elderly, it all worked out well in the end and the elderly enjoyed it. We learnt more about the lives of the elderly and how they went about with their lives everyday in the old folk’s home. In addition,we were asked to come back again to help with other activities such as grocery shopping with the elderly. Seeing the happy smiles on the elderly’s faces, we hope to come back again next year to entertain the elderly again.”
