Many enthusiastic Deutsche volunteers gave their time to the camp to coach students in English, music, dance, and craft. These classes were conducted daily by the volunteers in the early morning before office hours – a strong testimony of their commitment.
Given the strong level of engagement by the Bank’s volunteers in ensuring that classes remained interesting, it was not surprising that the summer camp’s popularity grew on a daily basis. By the time the camp concluded, a total of 100 students had been registered – twice the number compared to that at the camp’s inception. The students learnt new things every day and their parents were very happy with how fruitfully their children were spending their summer vacation.
During the camp’s closing ceremony, attended by members of Deutsche’s senior management, the children showcased their talent in dance, music, art and craft work. As part of a mini art competition, Deutsche Bank’s representatives were also tasked with selecting the best painting and best craft work, which was no easy feat considering that all the children’s’ works were of very high quality. The ceremony concluded with a prize presentation and lunch organised by Deutsche volunteers for the children and parents.
