Father-Child Annual School Camp on 7-8 June

The theme of the Camp was “R3ACT”, which focused on the 3 ‘R’s of RESPECT, RESPONSIBIILTY AND RAPPORT.  Which father does not want his children to look up to him with respect?  How do we nurture them to be responsible children as we model it by being responsible fathers?  How can we build rapport with them as we journey through life with them, trying to build a relationship that will withstand the test of time?  These qualities were highlighted through the various structured experiences planned for the father and child.
