It’s all ohhhs and ahhhs last Tuesday, when more than 110 pre-schoolers from NurtureStars participated in a mini-excursion to Singapore Discovery Centre. Donning their Smart No.4 and military cap, they discovered the importance of National Service (NS), at the same time, had a jolly good time participating in the activities lined-up for them.

Organised by NurtureStars, the visit was aimed at providing NSmen an opportunity to share a part of their NS experience with their children.
Time to fall in!
Their journey began with a bus tour of SAFTI Military Institute, followed by a trial of the SAF's Standard Obstacle Course (miniature version), simple military drills such as falling in as a platoon, throwing dummy grenade and putting on camou-cream. The kids also got to get up close with military vehicles!
