An experiential field trip to explore the flora and fauna at HortPark.

Re-enacting a scene from “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”: Peter Rabbit wriggling away from Mr McGregor!

The children explored HortPark through their senses of sight, sound, smell, touch and even by tasting a red radish!

Children lovingly watered seeds in a cup and imagined how their plant would look like.

30 beneficiaries from PPIS (Bedok) had fun at HortPark!

Field Trip to HortPark (In Partnership with ACTs of life)

23 Mar 2018

In line with our More Than Words theme this year, “WE CAN – Create, Contribute, Care, Connect, Cherish” 30 lower primary children from PPIS Student Care Centre (Bedok) explored the herbs, flora and fauna at HortPark on 23 March 2018 to learn how they can contribute to the environment.

This excursion was organised in partnership with our long-time partner, ACTs of life, who re-enacted “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” through different activity stations along their walk in the gardening park. “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” created an immersive experience for the children as they visualised Peter Rabbit running in the garden.

In the second segment, the children imagined they were botanists and learnt about the important role of plants in the environment. Then, they planted seeds in a little cup and illustrated what their plants would look like if it were the last of its kind in the world. They even wrote about their imagined plants and how it would help the world’s environment.

Thank you ACTs of life for partnering with us to bring this field trip to life!
