S5 HIW Coastal Walk

S5 HIW Activity – Changi Coastal Walk

For S5 cluster, 25th November 2011 was a splendid day spent at Changi Point Coastal Walk.
Despite the crazy weather these days, the day started off favourably with a bright, clear sky and refreshing atmosphere.
We started our HIW activity at Changi Village; we walked the park connector along
Netheravon Road
, to rediscover the rich history of Changi Point. Just to add a little zest to the learning of the heritage, we were each given a quiz sheet whereby we had to name the building or location that related to the pictures in the quiz.
Armed with cameras and the quiz sheet, we walked the trail while enjoying the landscape and discussing the story behind the heritage buildings; eg Civil Service Club, Old Changi Hospital and the Turnhouse.

At the end of the 1.5km park connector, we loop back to Changi Village via the scenic 2.6km broadwalk which offers beautiful views of the Changi Point Coastline as well as the terrain, flora and fauna that have been well-integrated in the nature of the walk.

The Broadwalk is divided into six segments.
Watch the magnificent sunset @Sunset Walk - Not to be missed in the Evening!

Kelong Walk extends into the sea and reminds us of the good old kelong days, as its set on stilts over the water. Walk amongst lush greenery @ the Cliff Walk

Enjoy views of sailboats & the expanse of the sea @ the Sailing Point Walk.
Feel the sea breeze and enjoy views of the clean beach @ the Beach Walk

Feel the life and buzz of bumboats ferrying passengers @ the Creek Walk

The nature walk was fun-filled with joyful moments, breezy ambience, cool-fresh air, fascinating coastal views, learning experiences and most importantly great team bonding.
After the nature walk, we headed off for our lunch and cluster meeting. Compliments of Rockey, we had a 3-course meal at Kampong Group @ Joo Chiat Road, thereafter we continued with our “Kopi Tiam” styled cluster meeting which was unusual and was entirely a new experience.
We ended our cluster meeting on a happy note with Boon Chuan our ZM treating us to mouth-watering Mango Prata and “Bru” Coffee. J
