Guests who were invited to preview the Gallery were impressed by the exhibition.

“It’s simply beautiful,” said Mdm Noelene De Foe, BBM, Chairman of Teck Ghee Community Club Management Committee and Vice-Chairman of Teck Ghee Citizens’ Consultative Committee.

“Many of the younger people may not have seen the older CCs (community centres), what they were like and how far PA has come over these 50 years.”

Agreeing, Mr Muhammad Nabil, member of Fengshan Youth Executive Committee and Kaki Bukit Malay Activity Executive Committee, said, “As a young person, I feel that there’s much to be learnt.”

A visit to the Heritage Gallery is part of the induction programme for PA staff and grassroots leaders, to remind them of how their work supports PA’s mission of building and bridging communities in achieving one people and one Singapore.

Visitors to PA HQ are also welcome to tour the Gallery, which will be a permanent fixture at the building’s atrium.
