Evan's 2nd In-House Concert at Anne Perreau's

Evan participated in his 2nd concert for the year on 13th October 2012 - playing a melody he composed himself entitled "Captain John Hopping up the Hill". FYI, Captain John is a rabbit! His teacher: Ms. Phylicia accompanied him on the other piano.
He played very well and confidently without any mistakes and without the music score..... as he is in the habit of doing. Am happy that he loves his music and piano classes the most (out of all the various classes he attends) and he practices his piano everyday - more often than not without me reminding him.

Trip to the National Blood Bank

We visited the National Blood Bank together with kids from the homeschooling network. One of the mummies did the paperwork and organizing. There are special parking bays within the building compound for blood donors.

All of us attended a mini lecture on blood donation and then we were brought on a tour of the facilities. We saw the equipments and machinery used to process the blood.

If you are between 18-60yrs old, in good health and weigh at least 45kg, then you are eligible to donate blood. Younger children can also donate blood but parental consent is necessary.

The National Blood Bank is opened everyday except on Sundays.
Mon-Wed: 7:30am-5:30pm
Thurs-Fri: 7:30am- 8pm
Sat: 7:30am-4pm
