A group of us from the Exco 2011/12 went down to the Pines on the afternoon of 9 July (Saturday) to put up a skit for the Secondary school girls attending the Lifeskills Workshop organised under Zonta Club’s Project Pari. Our skit tied in with the Teens and the Law presentation by Ms Lim Hui Min for this workshop. Adapted from a RELAC script, our skit shows how shoptheft and vandalism does not pay for the perpetrator and his or her accomplices, and the negative aspects of peer pressure .
The Zonta Club is formed by professional women for the advancement of the status of women worldwide by improving their legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional status. It has a worldwide presence and seeks to at the global and local levels through service and advocacy. The Singapore limb of the Zonta Club was established in 1971. Through its Project Pari, promising Secondary school girls from disadvantaged financial backgrounds benefit both from special programmes and monthly pocket money allowances.
After rehearsals at NUS, we set off for the Pines with our props and presentation slides. The sunny afternoon was well spent bringing laughter and an important legal message to the girls. We had fun ourselves in preparing this performance, and we even enjoyed a buffet lunch courtesy of our hosts ;)
