WeSkate Family Day - Skate tour at MBS
Report by Jon Wong
WeSkate recently concluded our first ever Family Day event with a skate tour around Marina Bay Sands. Students from our regular group classes and skate camps graced the event with their family, with some of the fathers skating with their children too. Weather was splendid and the scenery around was picture perfect.
Lead by Coach Jon, together with skate volunteers Florence and Fang Fang, our entourage headed towards The Merlion, passing by The Promontory @ Marina Bay Sands and One Fullerton.

Children were hyped up to see the Merlion and for their very first time, to skate on this scenic location and parents grabbed the chance to capture the moments on their camera phones.

Next we backtracked to Marina Bay Sands and headed in the opposite direction towards Gardens by the Bay, passing by The ArtScience Museum. Our destination was The Flower Dome and Cloud Forest and we were greeted by the refreshing cool air from the air conditioning of the complex which was ideal with the scorching hot weather.

It was satisfying to witness our students putting the skills that they had learnt from their classes to good use and applying them well throughout the journey. And we are glad that this event will give the participants a wonderful memory.
