Children's Day Celebration with Melrose Home


Singapore Turf Club (STC) celebrated Children’s Day on 7 Oct 2016 with a group of beneficiaries from Melrose Home, by embarking on an excursion to the Civil Defence Heritage Gallery and the Emergency Preparedness Centre, operated by the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). Fourteen children spent a fruitful afternoon learning the latest fire-fighting techniques and rescue technology developed and used by SCDF to handle a range of emergencies from fires to medical exigencies, war and terrorist-related incidents as well as anticipating natural disasters. SCDF’s Emergency Preparedness facilities also featured four cutting-edge interactive galleries such as the Fire and Evacuation Gallery, War and Terrorism Gallery, Ice-Cube Virtual Reality Simulator as well as the Natural Disasters Gallery where participants get to learn fire safety tips, emergency preparedness knowledge and life-saving skills through fun-filled and state-of-the-art interactive exhibits. The outing was a rewarding and fulfilling one, which allowed the children to learn outside the confines of a classroom.

Melrose Home Staff & Residents Bonding Day at STCRC


On Thursday, 8 September 2016, STC brought children and staff from our adopted charity, Melrose Home, to the Club’s proprietary horse riding school, the Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre (STCRC), for a morning of fun in celebration of the Home’s Staff & Residents Bonding Day. To many of our beneficiaries and their staff, this was the first time they had a first-hand experiential experience up-close and personal with horses and ponies. A myriad of activities were planned for this encounter, which included Pony rides, Stables Tour, Pony Feeding & Patting. Each child and staff also had the opportunity to pose for pictures with ponies which sealed the day as a memorable one.
