English based Environmental Awareness Programme Commences

28th July 2015-Our first programme to raise environmental awareness in schools in Cameron Highlands started in SJK Tamil,Ringlet The  program was conducted in English and around 25 students participated.
We started with showing a video on environmental degradation in Cameron Highlands. After reflecting on what they saw and a short discussion…we did a show and tell on transport toys which we had taken from the  kids .. This was followed by a lively group discussion .. After this they did a work sheet based on what they had learnt .. Finally they made a collage based on nature .. On another Manila card they wrote out all the new environment related words they had learnt .. It was a great learning experience from the kids both from the point of improving  their language proficiency and expressing their concerns about what is happening in Cameron highlands .
