They were developed as part of an integrated programme in Geriatric Care, a multi-disciplinary curriculum in which students learn to develop practical solutions for the needs of the elderly based on lessons in Science, Design and Technology, Food and Nutrition, and Pastoral Care and Guidance.

Curious passers-by must have wondered if the Olympics had come early. On 9 April, students from Boon Lay Secondary School lit an actual torch and ran all the way from their school to Jurong West Sports Stadium.
It was, of course, not the actual Olympic torch relay. Instead, this was a teaser that gave the students a taste of what it'd be like to be involved in the Olympics and a glimpse into the spirit of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games (YOG) that will take place in Singapore in 2010.
But what made it extra special was that the torch was designed and created by none other than the students themselves!
