  1. Is there any programmes for primary school kids in Singapore with regards to the above? In what way can young children contribute? What is the suitable age to participate in such activities? Who do I approach for such activities? Pls advise. Thanks

  2. Hi,

    I brought my students for the Dr. Jane Goodall Talk at Hwa Chong. The students thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining talk. However, as a teacher, I need more guidance as to how to enrol my students in this programme and what activities they can be engaged in. Is there a possibility of a sharing session being arranged?
