    Kids' day out at parents' OCBC offices

    WHO says kids are not allowed at the office?

    Some 65 children dropped in on Friday at the offices of their parents at local bank OCBC, as part of its OCBC Kids@Work pro-family initiative.

    The move, in its second year, aims to encourage family bonding and allows OCBC employees' children to develop an appreciation of their parents' work and motivation.

    Last year's event involved 50 kids but response had been so good that it was expanded this year.

    On Friday, the kids visited the OCBC branch in Ang Mo Kio before it opened to the public.

    They were broken up into groups and taken to different parts of the branch, such as Premier Banking, teller counters and business banking desks.

    They also took on the role of bank tellers and learnt how to perform simple transactions such as depositing and withdrawing money.

    Later the kids visited their parents at OCBC's Raffles Place and Tampines offices.
