Blossom Discovery Centre was given the privilege and opportunity to participate in the Kids Sports Challenge (KSC) event sponsored and hosted by the Singapore Youth Olympic Games at Marina Bay on 18 August 2010. In line with our September holiday excursion, this event helped to promote fun-filled sporty experiences, greater understanding of such competitive sports game and camaraderie with one and another.
The event started with a warm-up exercise accompanied by a very dynamic and motivating up beat music instructed by the host. After a vigorous warm-up activity, the children proceeded to the various sports booths to witness and experience having a go at the different types of sports (eg: basketball, badminton, soccer, football, taekwondo etc) under the Youth Olympic Games.
The children enthusiastically accepted the challenges of each sport and received star stamps recorded in their own sports card which were given after they had accomplished each activity. It was very encouraging to observe our children displaying a sporting spirit while fulfilling the challenges!
Blossom Discovery also had the priviledge to meet few role model athletes for a photo shoot. It was also a chance for the children to get to know the invited athletes as the athletes shared their secrets to a healthy sporting life.
Apart from participating in the various games, several of our Kindergarten children participated in a ‘Question and Answer’ game and won for themselves SYOG souvenirs and memorabilia. Next came the much awaited part of the event as the SYOG mascots ‘Lyo and Merly’ appeared on stage for a photo session! It was indeed an exciting and enjoyable experience for the children as they walked away with a certificate of attendance and a SYOG commemorative item. It was also a great honour for Blossom Discovery to be invited to this one of a kind prestigious sporting event.
