12 August 2017: Blood Donation Drive


On 12 August 2017, the student ambassadors organised a blood donation drive at Bloodbank@Westgate from 10 am to 5 pm. This event was supported by Singapore Red Cross Society. This year, the ambassadors were joined by some of their non-ambassador friends to recruit blood donors and it really provided a meaningful platform for students to learn more about advocating for a cause.

The event was carried out across two sessions in order for students to learn from the planning to execution phase. For the first session, Mr Terrance Tan from the Red Cross Society gave a comprehensive talk and provided more in-depth details about the blood donation process, which enabled students to have a greater understanding of the issue. The students then had to prepare their own publicity materials for outreach on the actual day.

The second session was the actual blood donation drive and our students had to reach out to the public to recruit blood donors. Our students were divided into three different shifts for the drive and some even had to put on the mascot during the event. Throughout the event, the students had to step up and be confident to engage the community. Despite the rain, there were a total of 108 registered donors on that day. It was definitely an enriching and eye-opening experience for our students.
