Bully-Free Roadshow 2015
Children’s Society is hitting the road to power real action against bullying. As part of its Bully-Free Programme, it will hold its inaugural Bully-Free Roadshow at Jurong Point’s outdoor sheltered space on 21 and 22 August 2015, from noon until 9pm and from 10am to 9pm respectively.
Through the Roadshow, the Society hopes to increase public awareness on the importance of preventing bullying among children and youth, as well as about the Society’s Bully-Free Programme. It also hopes that pledge booths and social media platforms will help the anti-bullying message get further.
Join us in being an advocate for a bully-free environment and an agent for change.

Walk for Our Children 2015
This year's Walk for Our Children will be bigger, and have a twist. Themed ‘Celebrating Childhood! Our memories, Our aspirations’, the Walk will take participants on a stroll down memory lane as we commemorate Singapore’s 50th year of independence.
Held in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of Singapore's accession to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), this signature fund-raising event, which will be held at Palawan Beach, Sentosa, will include a 3 km walkathon followed by an exciting carnival and fringe activities, including soccer and nerf gun matches. It will be held on Sunday, 6 September 2015, from 8.30am to 2.30pm.
It is organised by Children’s Society in collaboration with children’s theme park KidZania Singapore and other partners.
Have a fun day bonding with your family and friends, while helping the beneficiaries under our care. You can show your support in various ways, including through outright donations, sponsorship, by purchasing carnival coupons, pledge cards and early bird happy packs, volunteering or just participating.
9th Singapore Children’s Society Lecture – Growing up in the Digital World
Mr Han Fook Kwang, Editor-at-Large of The Straits Times and Chairman of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, which provides financial assistance to needy students, will take the podium at the Singapore Children’s Society Lecture this year.
Widely recognised for the insightful articles on social issues that he writes for his column in the paper, Mr Han will be sharing his thoughts on growing up in the digital world. The lecture will be held on 12 September 2015, at 10am at the Lecture Theatre of the Lifelong Learning Institute.
Now in its 9th year, the annual lecture was launched in 2007 as part of the Society’s efforts to raise public awareness on issues pertinent to the welfare and well-being of children, youth and their families.
The good old pasar (market) days and the kampong spirit of caring and sharing will be the focus of this year’s Free Market, as Singapore celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Organised by Youth Service Centre (Toa Payoh), this annual event treats its beneficiaries to much needed daily items including clothes, household goods and stationery.
The Free Market will be held on 19 September from 10am to 5pm at OnePeople.sg, and will also feature fun activities like games, live acts, competitions and face-painting for children, youth and families.
To donate items for this event, please call us at 6253 1124.
