BTSS x Solaris Games Day 7 Sep 2020

A group of student volunteers from Hwa Chong Institution turned an otherwise quiet September school holiday fun for our young BTSS members.  On 7 September 2020, 9 of our children participated in a virtual games event specially designed by the volunteers.  Through the games, they went around the world, challenged one another in a “Where’s Wally?” type of hunt and mused over the varied riddles thrown at them.  As an observer of the event, I found myself having fun and felt like a kid all over again.  Big THANK YOU to Ian, Bingyan, Dylan, Wen Yao and Yi Zhong!

BTSS Celebrates National Day 2020

Not wanting their National Day to quietly slipped away, a group of our young beneficiaries jumped onto the Zoom platform to partake in virtual games organized by our amazing volunteers.  The volunteers brought them through landmarks of Singapore with a guessing game and guided them through a digital drawing session to see who could draw the Merlion best.  More fun ensued when they tried to outwit each other in digital Pictionary.  Though most of the kids were camera and microphone shy, their inhibitions were loosened up through the constant virtual chats, and 2.5 hours went by too quickly.

BIG thank you to our volunteers for making this National Day special for us!

Fun Zoom activities for kids

Held over 3 days (26, 27 and 29 May 2020), a group of enthusiastic volunteers led our kids through a series of activities on the Zoom platform.  Through games like Drawasaurus, Pictionary and Hangman, these sessions were a much-needed break from the doldrums of the stay-home season that everyone is in.  Though initially reserved, the kids managed to break out of their shells and became at ease with one another through the 3 sessions.  Thank you so much Ira, Aakriti, Ayush, Tanisha, Sumithra and Ms Padma!

Be a Mathemagician!

BTSS was privileged to have coach Priya spend a morning with 10 of our kids on 21 May 2020 over ZOOM video conferencing.  It was a break from this unique lull school holiday season.  In over an hour, coach Priya showed and taught the kids the mathematics behind a trick.  Even though this was the first time that a BTSS kids event has been held virtually, there was little hiccups and everyone participated actively.  It was a productive morning and the kids can’t wait for their second session with coach Priya next week!  Thank you coach Priya for sharing your love for BTSS!
