Our Secondary 1 students embarked on a Geographical Investigation Field Trip to MacRitchie Treetop Walk in March and April, where they explored one of Singapore’s remaining native primary and secondary rainforests.
With an aerial view of the rainforest, Pathlighters enthusiastically put into practice the geographical data gathering methods that they learnt in class. This included sketching the main features of the lush rainforest, taking photographs of the biodiversity as well as signages and the impact of pollution, and completing an environmental perception survey. Equipped with the rich data they gathered, students headed back to class to reflect and discuss what more can be done to save our tropical rainforests.
It was indeed an eye-opening trip which motivated our budding environmentalists to play their part in conserving our environment!
