FLAG

8 August

An integral part of NUSSU RAG & FLAG event, FLAG is your opportunity to give back to society! Join us in raising funds on FLAG day which will happen on the 8th of August. Funds raised will go to our beneficiary - Fernvale Gardens School - to support their operations and improve students welfare. You can also sign up as a volunteer to interact with our beneficiary, brighten up the lives of the students, and know who you're really flagging for on FLAG day!

I interacted with students who were intellectually challenged and found it to be a very meaningful experience. FLAG gave me the opportunity to better understand and really see who we are flagging for and this further strengthens the true meaning and purpose of FLAG.

What your seniors have to say about FLAG!

FLAG gave me the valuable opportunity to give back to society, completing the orientation package. It enabled me to further understand what it meant to touch the lives of others. Though it wasn’t easy communicating with the students, we managed to teach them a variety of things such as purchasing and colouring. All you need is 2Ps - patience & perseverance - to put a smile on their faces, plant the seed of hope in them, and brighten up their lives that little bit more.

It was a meaningful experience raising funds for our beneficiary Fernvale Garden School through FLAG day and going down to the school for engagement sessions with the students. It was definitely a great experience as we could bond with the students whom we are raising funds for even though it was difficult to get close to them initially. Nevertheless, I had an amazing time with my newly-found friends from FSC and the students from the school!

FLAG was an enriching experience for me. Interacting with the kids at our beneficiary made me realise just how small and feeble an individual’s effort make on the lives of these kids. We need more awareness and help for them. All I can do is make them smile for a day but with the help of the general public’s generous donations, the beneficiaries will have more funds to truly help them assimilate back into society.

Zachary Lim, Year 2 Computer Science Student

It was one of the most meaningful experiences I have ever had. I've never been a huge "kids person", but I felt so welcomed by the children there. Even though the activities that we planned for them were fairly simple, I could see that they really enjoyed themselves. You could see how much the children appreciated our effort, just by the look of joy in their eyes. By the end of the day, many of us had forged such strong bonds with them that it was really hard to say goodbye. It felt like they were contented just spending time with us. It left me wanting to do so much more for them.
