Reading Station children were invited to a birthday celebration in Kids E World, Da’Men Mall.

Parents to a 4 year old girl wished to bless the children of Reading Station (RS) with fun activities, delicious food and special gifts donated by parents of Rainbow Montessori. Children from RS were excited as they were waiting for their transportation to the location.

Upon arrival everyone gathered to the venue for registration. After which they joined the fun activities at E Kids World, a mini indoor playground with slides, bridge tunnels and pool of coloured plastic balls. To enter the playground children or adults are required to wear socks. Some of them had them on, but some none, in order not to disappoint anyone; the couple host took the effort and trouble to buy the socks for the children who were not wearing them. The expression of thankful and happiness after receiving, were so evident in their eyes and smiles of these children.

After the play time, everyone gathered to re-energies, with scrumptious food such as spaghetti, sausages, potato wedges, fried bee hoon, fried chicken, nuggets, ribena drinks and others. Some children even had 3 servings of the variety of food because they were hungry and it was delicious. Yum...

Next agenda was, the cake cutting session and receiving gifts.
All the children, including the birthday girl’s friends, joined to sing birthday song and cutting the cake. Soon after, children from RS gave a big shout of thank you to everyone who donated the special gifts, on stage. Each child was given a bag of stationery including; colour pencils, crayons, paint, brushes, sticker and many more.

Time flew so fast, that the children from Reading Station didn’t want to leave the venue. But with thankful hearts and hands filled with bags of goodies and food, they were very happy and blessed. They just can’t wait to get back home to share the joy of receiving, with their family.

Volcano Experiment, VR and a Show in Reading Station.
Our volunteer Angeline, together with her son Dillon, prepared a volcano model from home and brought it to RS, to share with the children, on how to make lava. Our volunteer, Angeline used very simple and safe items such as, dish washing liquid, food coloring, vinegar and baking soda to demonstrate further. Children were excited to try this experiment and were eager to learn too. Each child were given opportunity to try pouring the ingredient carefully into the volcano's crater with supervision.

Next, all 10 children, tried on the Virtual Reality (VR). VR is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Some experienced it for the first time! Visuals they saw were dinosaurs and active volcano! They were thrilled and waited patiently for their turn to try on.

After which, Angeline using her laptop and projector, to share the definition and some facts about volcano. Soon after she introduced an interactive animated television series show called, Wallykazam. The series takes place in a colorful world resembling that of inside a fairy tale, in which the central characters reside. The show revolves around young troll Wally Trollman, who uses his magic stick to turn words into physical objects or occurrences, along with his pet dragon Norville and other friends. The duo occasionally runs into trouble, mostly caused by Bobgoblin. Children were amused with the funny characters and had so much fun listening and learning!

Segi University students shares their Reading Station experience.

From the moment we entered, we could tell that this organisation approach was very different. We went through Angsana
Flat’s long, dark, echoing corridors that gave us an idea of the environment, before we found PWP’s Jumble Station situated at the ground floor. The children and PWP’s facilitator, Jayapratha Batumalai were already waiting for us.
The facilitator greeted us with a warm welcome and we entered into a brightly lit room with walls freshly painted up with a theme to promote reading habit among the children. The children looked agitated and afraid; they continue to provoke each other even when they saw us enter. No signs of smiles and affection initially. We gave a brief introduction about ourselves and our aim for the activity we organized for them.
We began with an ice breaking session by asking them to sit around in a large circle, while we engaged ourselves with them by asking for their names and ages. We provided a piece of paper mask to each of them as our activity for the day was based on masquerade theme. The children still looked puzzled and they were shy to put on the mask prepared for them. Slowly, the atmosphere began to change, as we initiated them to play our first game called Charades.
Briefly, we explained to them on how we were going to play the game. We divided the children into two large groups and elected a representative from each group to stand facing them. They were getting a little more comfortable now, as they were excited to play. We showed a set of 1-word flash cards to the representatives, where they have to use their creativity to act out to their friends based on the word they saw in the card. The children excitedly shouted out their guesses and the group that shouted out the answers first won the session.
Next, the children are requested to write down their ambitions and what they want to be in the future. The ambition writing session is to inspire and motivate the children in their way on pursuing what they dream of. We have prepared a card board for the children to stick their sticky notes on it. From what they have written, most of the children want to be a teacher since they feel that being a teacher is a role model and a respectable profession. Moreover, some children wish to become a policeman in the future, seems that they aspire to help the people who are in need. In addition, some children want to become a nurse, fireman, pilot and officer. There is also one child who wants to be an astronaut, which is remarkable!.
Simple origami activity had been taught: Pikachu and Heart. The children show great interest in the Pikachu folded. The teaching section is led by Tina and others are assisting. When Pikachu had been folded, children were asking for markers pen, to draw the Pikachu’s face on the paper. Next, the heart was taught and all children had done a great job. Their initiative and attentiveness are appreciated.
For the singing session, we have performed 2 songs which are called Hero by Mariah Carey and Seasons in the Sun by Westlife.
Before starting, we have distributed the lyrics to the children. Then, we explained the meaning of the songs to the children. “Hero” is an inspiration song to encourage people to believe in themselves and not to give up on their dream easily. “Seasons In The Sun” is a farewell song as the sign of appreciation for the kids.
Ren Jiet and Shah lead the singing session by singing “Hero” followed by “Seasons In The Sun”. The instrument used was a guitar which was played by Shah. Initially the children seemed to be very shy to sing together but they started to sing together with us after awhile. All the members and children sang happily together during the encore. The singing session ended with applause.
A lively chicken dance was led by our group members. We had danced two times on that day. The children stand in a circle together with us and did the chicken dance with the music. During this session, we can see a big smile on each of their faces. Hence, we felt very glad and satisfied that the children were actually enjoying themselves. Nothing can satisfy a person more than bringing a smile on the face of the innocent children. Before ending our activities, the children are given coloured papers to write down their feedback on our activities. We are happy and feel satisfied that all of the children have positive feedback to us and have their fun and enjoyed it. They love singing and dancing. Also, they enjoyed Origami making session. We can see their smiles on every faces. We are glad and encouraged, that our little effort could mean the world to someone.
That was an unforgettable trip. The feelings and the emotions have still stayed the same in us, after this journey.
