Republic of Singapore Navy 50th Anniversary
As part of the Republic of Singapore Navy’s (RSN) 50th Anniversary celebration, a four-book compendium collectively titled “Ahoy, Navy!” was published to give children aged four to eight years old an insight to life in the RSN and the Navy’s role in keeping Singapore’s waters safe. Ezanne and Evan attended a story telling session by a Navy officer on 17 June at SAFRA Toa Payoh. It was an engaging session as the navy officer was able to share his personal experience as he tells the story of young Emily and her father who goes out to sea on board a Navy frigate.
After the story telling session, Ezanne also participated in the rope-tying workshop. It takes quite a bit of patience to complete the project and Evan wasn’t too interested in this. Ezanne, under the guidance of a navy officer, managed to complete tying one and kept it as a souvenir for herself.
One of the highlight of the event was the ‘Draw Your Dream Navy Ship’ competition that encourages the public to imagine the Navy of the future.
Both Ezanne and Evan drew their dream navy ship and also took some time to colour the RSN50 Doodle Wall. The doodle wall will be on display at Vivo City in November 2017 from 9 to 12 November 2017. In addition to the doodle wall, you will also have the opportunity to get up close and personal with RSN shops, weapons and equipments.
