Station 3

At this station, we went to the Slide at T3 and learnt about the rules and regulations. It says that you need to be at least 130cm tall to ride the 12 meter long slide. We were all excited to ride the slide but when we went there, it was closed as it says that the slide is open from 12pm to 10.30pm daily.

After learning about the T3 Slide, we went to look for a very unique and special Recycling Bins. ( shown on the right ) We also took a group photo with the Recycling Bins! Did you know that there are amazing facts about recycling on the bins. It says that every ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees! There are also more facts on the bins if you have a chance to go to Changi Airport, I recommend you to go check out the unique Recycling Bins at Changi Airport.

Station 4

This was the best station of all. We did our own masterpieces at the Woodblock print station. It turned out awesome after printing. The black art piece was done by Rachelle and the colourful one was done by Amirah, hope you like it.
