Due to the epidemic, the children in Agape Children's Home go out less. Due to the limited space available, teachers and students thought together to find out what kind of activities that everyone can participate in? This group of children decided to combine their interests with past activities; independently they organized competitions of singing, 3 on 3 basketball, snack making, and edited videos by themselves. From brainstorming the activities, setting procedures, preparing equipment, etc., the children went from clueless to orderly. They also anticipated emergencies and solutions in advance, and greatly improved their ability to respond and deal with sudden situations.
Dov, who loves singing, volunteered to host a singing competition even though he was only in the sixth grade of elementary school. The most memorable thing during the game was Wei, his good friend, nervously forgot the lyrics on stage! Wei, having stage fright already, was even more at a loss because of forgotten lyrics and wanted to keep up with the background music, however, there was no ridicule in the audience, instead, everyone cheered with "Come on Wei!", "Come on! You can do it!" and sang together, gradually alleviating Wei's nervousness. And then he remembered the lyrics smoothly, and continuing to complete the singing competition.

Jude, who likes to play basketball, is an enthusiastic 9th grader, so he organized a 3 on 3 basketball match, a 3-point shooting match, and added a playoff game of "Children vs. Teachers". The temperature on the day of the game was only 20 degrees Celsius, but due to the fierce competition on the field and the enthusiastic shouts of cheering on the side, the whole field felt a very high atmosphere!

Shaun, who is a 9th grader, loves making desserts by himself, so Shaun decided to hold a dessert contest with the theme of "Orange". The children put oranges into various desserts. In addition to orange cakes, there are panna cotta, jelly, etc. They also use novel ideas to combine oranges with taro puree. The unexpected sweet and sour taste was amazing! With orange fruit carving as decoration, it presents an eye-catching plate. In addition, the young Shaun also has an interest in film production. Last year, the opening video of the Christmas event in the children's home was organized by him.

Although it is impossible to participate in the rich outdoor activities this year as usual, but instead, they can personally complete the planning of activities from scratch in the children's home, as well as teamwork to help each other, bringing the children closer to each other, learning to grow and shaping a good and responsible personality is a process of full harvest.
After more than 60 years, Agape Children's Home has cultivated many small seeds along the way. It is hoped that every child will grow positively through diversified learning so that more small wings can fly smoothly in the sky in the future!
