Environmental Education Programme in SMK Kg Raja 17th July 2018

by Cheam May Choo

On the 17th of July 2018, REACH conducted an environmental education programme EEP in SMK Kg Raja ( Kg Raja secondary school). As with our other EEProgramme English is used as a medium of instruction. 230 students from Form 1, 2 and 4 attended. Kavvin A/L Sehgar , our regular volunteer gave a talk on recycling and going ‘green’ (After years of conservation and environmental work with young people, it is interesting to note that our regular volunteers share many things in common. They tend to be very motivated, speak well in public, show leadership qualities,have good family values and normally excel in studies, sports or music. They are very focussed on what they do and usually they will be successful in embarking on a career of their choice. And Kavvin exemplifies this. Congrats, Kavvin, our future vet!)

Our other volunteers for the day include Kee Yan Jie, Thibault, Quentin ,Phillipe and Anushka. Also present were Datin Aseema, Mas, Saras.
