One of our primary 4 classes and their teachers had the opportunity to attend the media preview event of the National Geographic Young Explorer Programme on 3 January 2014. They went on a rainforest walk at the Botanic Gardens, accompanied by Environment and Water Resources Minister Vivian Balakrishnan. At the walk, the students learnt about plants and animals suchs as creepers and Shorea trees.
“My Favourite part is seeing the spider webs!” Alex Cheah of Eucalyptus Class recounted.
It was a refreshing and enriching experience for our staff and students. They especially enjoyed being able to appreciate the beauty of nature and to have the knowledge which they learnt in school come alive in a natural setting.
