SINGAPORE: Ten young beneficiaries from the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD) embarked on their very own Outward Bound adventure on Saturday.

The half—day event had them hunting in the rustic environment of Pulau Ubin.

The adventurous day—out was organised by 16 Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) youth participants, as part of their seven—day programme to touch the lives of others in the community.

A 13—year—old participant, Low Wee Chong, who is physically handicapped, said the OBS friends made him feel "just normal like them".

The student organisers were nominated from different secondary schools for this OBS leadership programme based on legendary explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Trans—Antarctic Expedition in the year 1914.

The past five days have seen these students on various sailing and trekking expeditions before taking ownership of planning this event.
