Singapore Red Cross Flag Day 2012
The objective of the Singapore Red Cross Flag Day is to raise funds for local humanitarian work services such as the Red Cross Home for the Disabled and the Red Cross Non-Ambulance Service. It also aims to fund prescribed programmes to prepare volunteers who will render timely assistance to victims of disasters, both locally and overseas as and when the need arises. Participation in the Red Cross Flag Day provides an opportunity for students to learn self-motivation, compassion and humility.

Woodgrove’s Red Cross Youth (RCY) has done three phases of donation for the Singapore Red Cross Society and they are:
1) a tin can donation from 11th Jan to 20th Jan 2012 within the school
2) a donation card collection from 11th Jan to 2nd Feb 2012
3) a Flag Day on 11th Feb 2012 where funds were solicited from members
of the public
On the morning of 11th Feb 2012, 23 Red Cross Cadets gathered at Admiralty Secondary School to collect the donation tins cans, stickers and the certificate necessary to solicit funds in public places. A briefing was held to educate students on the basic etiquette when approaching members of the public.
