On 22 March 2019, the class took a day-trip out to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. It was a day filled with excitement, learning, and humble reflection. To some, it was a pleasant surprise to find themselves amidst so much nature on this small hypermodern island. To others, it was a gentle reminder to put time aside to maintain and strengthen the connection one has with the natural world.
Excitement filled the air as the class spotted their first crocodile!
The class showed Rachel Carson’s sense of wonder just like a child would
We were treated to great weather and luck on our day out, and were able to spot various inhabitants of the reserve including three crocodiles!

The serenity made an ideal space for peaceful reflection
On 28 February 2019, the class took an educational field trip to the Singapore Zoo. Each student took on the persona of a Zoo Psychologist as they visited the different exhibits and watched the various shows throughout the day. The class reflected upon the role that the Zoo plays in wildlife conservation, and also suggested even better ways to communicate conservation ideals.

We were invited to a special guest lecture at the Zoo’s Auditorium @ Wildlife Learning Centre.

During the lecture we learnt about the brief history of Singapore Zoo and the steps that have been taken towards wildlife conservation and education, both within Singapore and internationally.
Many of us left inspired and empowered to make a difference as individuals
