  • Class Committee and Siglap Secondary School to Indonesia, Surabaya
    The foreign setting taught us how to show understanding and empathy towards others and how to be contented with the present In the busy streets of the country you could witness heart wrenching scenes of poverty right before your eyes Community work wall painting at Sdn Wonokerto 1 Primary School was equally significant and definitely memorable Despite our superior learning environment and conditions here in Singapore something vastly different was the mindsets and attitudes of the Indonesian children towards learning They were enthusiastic students bursting with positive energy and glee and their wide smiles of appreciation are unforgettable Despite communication and age barriers they were warm hearted kids who welcomed us with big hearts We played volleyball together and gradually build friendship bonds with the students Departure from Sdn Wonokerto 1 was a scene which tugged many heartstrings but we were glad to brighten the spirits and morale of the children and make a little difference to their lives The day started off with an excellent beginning on 4 th June The early sunrise at Mount Penanjakan was simply a beauty Everything was amazingly breathtaking from the clouds to the skyline to the colours of the landscape Following this our team proceeded on to trek a simple path up Mount Bromo soon after accompanied by beautiful natural sceneries along the way It was our first time experience ascending a mountain thus we were burning with curiosity and taken aback by the beauty of its setting Some of our trekkers even tried out horse riding while descending the mountain After breakfast at Surya Indah Hotel on the 5 th Dunmanians and Siglapians departed for Sumberbrantas village where the local jeep took us to the starting point through a rocky journey where we witnessed large vibrant plantations and fields which amazed all This was our starting point of the 2 days trek to the summit of Mount Welirang Being first timers there were feelings of excitement anticipation fear hopes all mixed up together We began our jungle trek with a positive enthusiastic energy and went through obstacles and obstructions along the way with the help of strong teamwork and encouragement between the 23 of us It was a tough and tedious journey ascending the mountain but nonetheless we made it to the base camp safely The sight of colourful pitched tents and camp fires lit up before our eyes and in an instant all the weariness and fatigue was worth it Soon night came and darkness set in together with a gradually decreasing temperature For the first time in our lives we slept in a tent on a freezing cold 5 degrees mountain we heard the wild wolves cry in the middle of the night we witnessed beautiful star constellations hanging in the clear endless sky It was a night to remember On last day of our adventure the unbelievable and unexpected happened We made it Dunman High School and Siglap Secondary School left behind a legacy We conquered Mount Welirang together
