Presidential Encounter for Sunbeam Place Residents

September 2019

It was a magical day with Singapore President Halimah Yacob for 20 beneficiaries from Sunbeam Place @ Children’s Society during Picnic@Istana on 13 June.

Organised by Singapore Pools, the day out included a session during which the residents learnt magic tricks that they could then show off to Mdm President. 

For many, this was a first-time visit to the Istana, and some could not contain their excitement.

Said one 8-year-old Sunbeam Place resident: “The Istana is so nice and beautiful. I enjoyed the magic show prepared for us. I was nervous about speaking to Mdm President at first but she was friendly.”
Picnic@Istana is a series initiated by President Halimah Yacob to open up the Istana to more Singaporeans.
