ONE thousand three hundred and twenty-four.

That's the magic number that helped Yu Neng Primary School in Bedok North bag a new Singapore record for the "Most Number of People Decorating Tote Bags Together".

As part of the Pay-it-Forward project, Yu Neng's entire school community of pupils, parents and volunteers - making up a total of 1,324 - got together on Friday to sew owl motifs on eco-friendly tote bags.
