(Dec 98-Jan 99)
The end of the year vacation workshop for kids was held in December 1997. Participants from Pei Hwa Presbyterian School took part in this day-long workshop based on the theme 'Birds of Buloh'.
The primary aim of this workshop is to introduce children to the strange and wonderful flora and fauna of Sungei Buloh Nature Park and how they have adapted themselves to the different conditions found in the various habitats of the Park.
Class size is limited to a maximum of 20 and participants have a choice of two days: 2 June or 5 June. The fee of $40 includes meals and workshop materials.
This workshop is held once a month on a Saturday morning. It aims to familiarise teachers with the various programmes and materials available at the Park and more importantly, to equip teachers with the necessary krwwledge and skills to conduct field trips to the Park.
A new segment that has been included in this year's workshop programme is the introduction of fun and environmentally-friendly activities that teachers can conduct with their pupils while at the Park.
The participants are appreciative of the efforts taken to introduce the Park to them and leave with a better understanding and appreciation of Singapore's wetland paradise.
Response from workshop participants has been encouraging and vacancies for this year's workshops are filling up quickly.
