Do All The Good You Can ... As Long As You Ever Can

Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
as long as ever you can

Bishop Oldham’s ethos of mentorship and servitude still burns bright with Oldham Club continuing to bear the torch.

On an overcast Saturday, 9 September 2017, Oldham Club played host to about 60 children from Hougang, Jurong, Tanjong Pagar and Monfort Family Service Centres for a half day of socialising and games at the Anglo-Chinese Junior College Sports Complex.

The intent was to expose the children to the various sports and more importantly, for them to have a really good time.

It was wonderful to see the children having fun and enjoying themselves as they were introduced and actually got to play rugby, water polo, badminton and tennis. What was heartwarming was that we had almost 60 volunteers from Oldham, many of whom are representing or have represented Singapore in one sport or other. Even more heartwarming is the interaction between the volunteers and the children. It left no doubt as to who had the better opportunity to learn and to benefit more. It was certainly the Oldham volunteers!

According to Mr Low Yang Tong, Head of Oldham Club:

Besides a day of activities and fun, we had hoped to share with these wonderful children that in sports (and in many other activities as well), once you are on the field, in the pool or on the track, sports become the best leveler in life. All it takes is a stout heart, courage, perseverance, hard work and hope. We would like to think that this message went across well.”

It is hoped that this event will be the first of many other partnerships with the National Council of Social Services. We would like to think that everyone on that Saturday benefitted from the humble privilege of being able to host, to impart some values and for these wonderful kids, perhaps a small insight and some inspiration that many things are indeed possible with the right beliefs and the right values”.
