Making A Sweet Contribution
The Primus Schoolhouse community recently ran a fundraising campaign to build a library corner for the Lumnamwittaya School in the Thai village of Mae La Noi, close to the Burmese border. Teachers and staff made 4,700 Honey Joys (a popular children’s snack in Australia made from cornflakes and honey) and students created art pieces to decorate each jar. Needless to say, all the jars sold out! Through this effort, the school’s community realised they can make a difference in the lives of others. The initiative is in line with the school’s Virtues Project, and its vision to nurture character and inspire the minds of students.

DIY How-To Videos
Here’s a great way to keep kids occupied at home: choose a how-to video on DIY.org. Besides more common activities such as painting, drawing, singing and baking, there are less common things to do such as beat making, cartography, criminology, game design, printmaking and more. Whenever an activity is completed and uploaded, experience points (known as XP) are earnt. Kids can post completed work online for others to see and make new friends as they motivate each other to continue doing activities. They can also attend live workshops, take part in daily challenges, and create fun moments together. To encourage more kids to participate, DIY is free all summer this year, starting from 1 June!
75 Years of Bentley
Last month, the team at Bentley Singapore helped to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the opening of the iconic Bentley Motors factory in Crewe, England. Since the opening, close to 200,000 handcrafted, luxury cars have been produced there, across four model lines: Continental, Flying Spur, Bentayga and Mulsanne. Incredibly, some 84 per cent of all cars built at the Crewe factory for the UK market are still on the road today! In other news, the company aims to be end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030 by switching to battery electric vehicles.
