Care Packs for Needy Students.

With the global COVID19 pandemic, LCS Galaxy made 150 Care packs with an aim to help the following needy students:

1. Under the Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS).
This scheme by MOE is to help needy Singaporean families reduce their burden in meeting essential school expenses ad to ensure that no child will be denied an education due to financial reasons.

2. Whose Parents could have lost their job owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A visit was made to the few schools to establish the need and to determine the numbers of Care Packs needed. The distribution to the students was left to the school.

Each Care Pack comprised the following:

– Hand Sanitisers
– Wet tissues (2 packets)  
– Disposable Face Masks (25 pcs per pack) 
– A goody pack – Panda Biscuits, Hershey’s Kisses and Chuppa Chups 
– NTUC Vouchers ($10.00)

Recipients and delivery dates to the schools
