Hari Raya Celebration with Rumah Kebajikan Baitul Hidayah
On 15 September 2012, PPB brought 41 well-behaved children from Rumah Kebajikan Baitul Hidayah (RKBH), Puchong to Aquaria KLCC. Punctually, the children and their guardians arrived at 9.30 am all dressed to their best, feeling so excited as this was their first visit to Aquaria.
Whilst waiting for Aquaria to open at 10.30 am, the children entertained PPB staff with two English Nasyid rendition followed by a short speech by Ms Koh Mei Lee, Senior Manager (Corporate Affairs) of PPB. Together with Aquaria's mascot, the children and PPB staff took several group shots.
The children were taken for an hour and half guided tour and whilst touring around Aquaria, the children were given a list of questions to complete. They enjoyed themselves immensely as they discover the different types of fish and other ocean species and even had the experience to touch those which were permitted. After the tour, the children sat down to watch a 15-minute "Feeding Show" before they actively participated in a quiz session.
PPB gave away electrical items to the Home and goodie bags to every child. PPB staff and children had McDonald's lunch together before departing at 2.00 pm.
