Project Cheer 2017 and Closing Tea

28 Jul 2017

In the first two weeks of June, 12 student-led groups from Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) planned and executed activities for 440 children and elderly beneficiaries from 24 different charities. Project Cheer served as a platform for multi-generational bonding between the young and elderly while empowering ACJC students to hone their leadership and programme planning skills. Project Cheer culminated in an Appreciation Tea on 21 July where the top three performing groups were announced and congratulated for their outstanding Project Cheer sessions.

Project Cheer 2017 is the 5th run in 4 years of Project Cheer with ACJC. This year, MOE Character and Citizenship Education Advisor, Ms Helen Choo attended the Project Cheer Briefing to gain an understanding about our Project Cheer -VIA collaboration.
