      • On the day itself, our friends from various classes came to help us wash the cars.
      • We split them up into wet and dry teams for more efficiency.
      • Then, we briefed our friends about how to wash the cars correctly.
    Charity Car Wash!

      • We received a considerable amount of positive feedback from parents and teachers about the carwash service we provided:
      • “ My car is sparkly now”
      • “ You clean better than the petrol stations!”
      • “ Will you be here next week, as I would like to come again to have my car washed”
    • All of our friends enjoyed washing the cars too!
  • 9. How we were ‘Changed’
      • Throughout this whole project, we have got to know more about ourselves; our strengths and our weaknesses . In addition to that we became closer as a team and as friends .
      • This project gave us a golden opportunity to understand the needs of our community and to promote volunteerism to the youths in this world , including us!
      • We have benefitted much from this project. For example, we learnt about the importance of teamwork , and how to improve on our plans and ideas to get the most out of it.
      • We also felt that this whole project has been challenging, yet fulfilling . It has given us plenty of real-world experience we would otherwise not have obtained.
