Location: Taman Tugu Nursery
Children and their parents from the Home School Tribe contributed towards creating a rainforest here at Taman Tugu.
The children, with the help of their parents, planted forest cover to further balance the ecosystem and to help stabilise the ground by holding the soil, which prevents erosion. The group then went on a guided forest trail walk where the children insisted on exploring the secondary trails at Taman Tugu which are said to be more adventurous.
The children enjoyed this outdoor classroom session which puts nature at the heart of the lesson. Spending time with nature and learning about our flora and fauna help children with their attention span, creative thinking skills, and emotional intelligence – that makes one more compassionate. The children also learnt the value of our natural heritage and to care for it.
The session ended with a picnic at the Forest House where the group did not use any plastic items and brought their waste home.
It was our great pleasure to be part of an outdoor classroom experience for the children. We look forward to being a classroom for more children.
