Last Saturday, Zhenghua RC organized a Children’s Day carnival for the kids living in Bukit Panjang. There were bouncy castle, trackless train, pirate ships and many more and the kids had a blast!

The organizing committee also transformed the entire RC centre into a haunted house and got scare actors to bring a good scare to the residents.

On the performing stage, Emcee Jim Koh also played Halloween themed games with the children and their parents on stage and the residents had a great family bonding time.
