Close to 1000 students from St. Andrew’s Junior College (SAJC) came together in January 2007, to put their hands together to design and paint glassware, all for a good cause. Over a period of three days, SAJC mobilised all their year one students to do their bit for the community. This saw the students working in pairs to work on their masterpieces using simple plain glasses. By the end of the whole project, close to 450 tealight and pencil holders of varying designs were completed.
The completed masterpieces were then to be sold at the Rotary Carnival on 27 January 2007. Working hand-in-hand, year two students from the Students’ Council also came together to work on their marketing strategy and sold the glassware at the carnival. All in all, this meaningful project contributed to funds being raised for The Salvation Army, Rotary Family Service Centre and the Rotary Ayer Rajah Students’ Care Centre.
