It was an exciting day for us all at Blossom Aspiration Centre on 12 Mar 2012 as we went on our first excursion as a Blossom school! Although it was a short journey from Serangoon to Health Zone at Outram Park, the bus was filled with an air of excitement as we could hardly wait to set foot in HealthZone!
The first thing that greeted us when we entered the first area ‘Exciting Eatery’ was a giant healthy eating pyramid was displayed. The children were fascinated by the appealing life sized food models on each layer of the pyramid. Both the teachers and the children gathered some useful tips on reading food labels and make healthier choices with a virtual supermarket station!
A giant eye model displaying the structure of an eye such as the pupil, iris, retina etc captured our attention when we entered into the area ‘Vision Vista’. We could even search for an ideal spectacles frame to suit all our different face shapes just by taking digital shots of ourselves. Cool! At the ‘Tooth Terrain’, we were introduced to good dental health habits, as well as the functions and locations of various types of teeth. Going to the next theme area was the puberty passage where the children could learn about the various stages of growth in a human body.
Finally, the long awaited moment had arrived. The children were thrilled when they entered ‘Fitness Funhouse’ where they had so much fun climbing and sliding! The children also had a go playing tug-of-war with a stationary “sumo wrestler”. The excursion ended with each of us having a packet of chocolate milk courtesy of HealthZone to accompany our nutritious lunch. It was a tiring but fun and unforgettable experience for all the children and teachers as well!
