GAMUDA Land is spreading holiday cheer and community spirit through its Jolly Christmas events taking place in its developments this month.
To bring the community together, activities from educational workshops for children to festive celebrations were organised.
Gamuda Land chief executive officer Chu Wai Lune said, “Gamuda Land’s Jolly Christmas is more than just a series of events, it’s a heartfelt endeavour to bring people together to share moments of joy and camaraderie.
“The essence of good placemaking lies in vibrancy, community engagement and the ability to facilitate connections among people with nature – aligning with our belief that a town is a community.”
Gamuda Land partnered with CoComelon to bring fun and educational activities to participants, including hot air balloon felt workshops, wheel on the bus coin box workshops, CoComelon colouring sessions, along with photo opportunities with beloved characters and games.
CoComelon is a children’s entertainment programme.
Gamuda Land hosted Christmas bazaars and “snowfall” experiences across its townships and developments, attracting 130,000 visitors and creating an ambiance that embodies the holiday spirit.
Understanding the importance of a sustainable future and to cultivate the environmental stewards of the future, Jolly Christmas also presented the Heroes of Tomorrow edutainment workshops, in collaboration with Kiddypedia – a children’s workshop provider.
The workshops have been held since Nov 25 to coincide with the year-end school holidays, and over 2,200 children have participated.
The workshops consisted of sessions tailored for young learners to understand the ways of sustainable living through a series of activities, including simulating the assembly of homes using block-building exercises that mimic the Industrialised Building System (IBS) construction method employed in Gamuda Land’s developments.
IBS construction is recognised for its environmental efficiency – enabling better design flexibility and near zero material wastage which contributes to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
Participants learnt the significance of clean and renewable energy, explored the world of waste management and recycling and learnt how to nurture seedlings while immersing themselves in the wonders of nature.“Our goal isn’t just about building homes but cultivating thriving communities.
“Through these events, we hope to bring joy, knowledge, and foster a sense of togetherness during this festive season,” said Chu.
