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!
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
