“It’s never too young to learn if we lead them”
The best way to teach your children is to be an exemplary role model yourself. Jolina went along with her mother April and other members at Yishun Pond last Sunday. Keeping our estates clean and litter-free is not just about one campaign. By creating small scale community clean-up activities, we can sustain the awareness and create a sense of ownership among residents. This is what Waterways Watch society is working at.
April joined WWS long ago and now as a mother, she has brought Jolina to join many of our activities. Well Done April! Wish we had more mothers like you.
We have come a long way and hope to continue to nurture responsible behaviour among the residents. One way is to get the community involved in litter pickings.
