chamPIN Bowling – an activity involving a carpet lane, plastic weighted pins and a rubber ball – was the most popular activity at the U Care Back To School Fair 2014. From 12 to 14 December, about 50 Singapore Sports School Singapore Pools Sports Excellence Scholars organised games for children visiting the Fair.
The Back To School Fair is organised yearly by NTUC to help children from lower income families prepare for the start of a new school year. NTUC distributes vouchers worth $125 to each child from lower income families which can be used to purchase items such as school textbooks and assessment books, stationary, school uniform, shoes.
chamPIN Bowling was showcased as special stage segment which allowed children to participate and win prizes. For two 30-minute slots a day, the scholars had the opportunity to teach young children how to hold and roll a bowling ball. From stage to booth, young children queued to realise their dream of becoming a chamPIN Bowling Champion. Other games like Tic-Tac-Toss were organised for children play and win prizes, kicking start the festive season of gift-giving.
An endless flow of children came to the booth managed by the student-athletes. Some children came once, others kept returning. As each child left happily with prizes in their hands, the scholars too wore smiles on their faces knowing they have brought joy to children at the Fair.
