We are back into full-swing this week. We had four continuous days of River Monster with Nan Hua Primary School (293 students in total, 52.2kg litter collected), two school talks sponsored by Pratt and Whitney with North View Primary School (1000 students) and Woodlands Primary School (700 students), one kayak programme for MOE OALC (17 pax) and one Bike patrol with PUB Foundation (35 pax). We ended the week on Sunday with our annual Thai joint operation at Kallang Riverside Park (45 pax) with 15 WWS members. In this annual Thai joint operation, many participants were repeat including their youngest 11-year-old. Chairman Eugene also participated in a TEENS Conference at Holy Innocents High School (150 students from 20 schools). Weekend patrols had 35 members involved for Marina however Punggol patrol was cancelled as we had no available leaders.
On Wednesday, we did the second part of our Channel 8 video at Kallang Basin. The program will be aired soon on a Tuesday morning.
We had one Corporate Programme organised via Empact postponed and another CSR with Buckman postponed at the last-minute due to half of their participants being on medical leave. The weekend had a lot of housekeeping done with both pantries. We had a problem with rats in one of our pantry and have cleared the whole pantry and reported to NEA and Gardens by the Bay (GBB).
PMDs and PABs are still being sighted in Kallang Riverside Park while we were on patrol. Fishing continues to be the problem with many still fishing outside the approved zones and with live bait.
