We all learn that we should be grateful to what we have in our life and not taking granted of the fact we are able to do simple things like walking. Hope there will be more opportunities to collaborate with NKF. J

S5 HIW Activity – Changi Coastal Walk
For S5 cluster,
25th November 2011 was a splendid day spent at Changi Point Coastal Walk.
Despite the crazy weather these days, the day started off favourably with a bright, clear sky and refreshing atmosphere.
We started our HIW activity at
; we walked the park connector along Changi Village , to rediscover the rich history of Changi Point. Just to add a little zest to the learning of the heritage, we were each given a quiz sheet whereby we had to name the building or location that related to the pictures in the quiz.
Armed with cameras and the quiz sheet, we walked the trail while enjoying the landscape and discussing the story behind the heritage buildings; eg Civil Service Club,
and the Turnhouse. Old Changi Hospital
At the end of the 1.5km park connector, we loop back to
via the scenic 2.6km broadwalk which offers beautiful views of the Changi Point Coastline as well as the terrain, flora and fauna that have been well-integrated in the nature of the walk. Changi Village
The Broadwalk is divided into six segments.
Watch the magnificent sunset @Sunset Walk - Not to be missed in the Evening!
Kelong Walk extends into the sea and reminds us of the good old kelong days, as its set on stilts over the water. Walk amongst lush greenery @ the Cliff Walk
Enjoy views of sailboats & the expanse of the sea @ the Sailing Point Walk.
Feel the sea breeze and enjoy views of the clean beach @ the Beach Walk
Feel the life and buzz of bumboats ferrying passengers @ the Creek Walk
The nature walk was fun-filled with joyful moments, breezy ambience, cool-fresh air, fascinating coastal views, learning experiences and most importantly great team bonding.
We ended our cluster meeting on a happy note with Boon Chuan our ZM treating us to mouth-watering Mango Prata and “Bru” Coffee. J
