It was a warm and lovely day at Jelapang Old Folks Home on July 23 when 27 students from SMK Seri Keledang, Mengelembu paid a visit and helped to clean the place.
The Form 1 and Form 2 students who are members of the school Counselling and Career Club, spruced up the home by cleaning the windows and bathrooms, sweeping, mopping and performing other tasks.
“The idea is to teach students to give back and help those who are in need. We chose Jelapang Old Folks Home because they rely fully on the help and donation of the public,” said Mrs Yong Oi Chin, one of the teachers who assisted the programme.
Soon after the cleaning finished, the students entertained the residents by singing a few songs including Mandarin and English songs. The school also donated goodie bags to the old folks as part of their visit.
