Tree Planting Day (SSDB 2019) with Guest-of-Honour Mr Liang Eng Hwa (MP, Holland-Bukit Timah GRC)
As part of Ichiban Montessori’s Start Small Dream Big (SSDB) 2019 initiative, we organised a Tree Planting Day on the 18th of May.
Our Tree Planting Day was packed with meaningful activities, which were thoughtfully planned by our team in order to enhance children’s learning and of environmental issues, as well as to create opportunities for parent-child bonding.
Parents and children were thoroughly engaged in our art activity. Their creative juices were put to work as they used recycled materials to create beautiful and unique art pieces! We were really amazed at their talent and creativity. This was also a great opportunity for parents and teachers to use teachable moments to educate children about the importance of recycling.
Our parents and children also enjoyed engaging with Mr Liang during our activities.
Our parents and children were really excited to have the opportunity to plant a tree in our neighbourhood. Children learnt first-hand how they can contribute to the environment. They also learnt about the importance of trees and how they help our environment. Having our parents around to witness and support the event was such a privilege for us. With our parents reinforcing the lessons learnt at the event, we can be sure that our children will grow up to be responsible protectors of our environment.
Finally, we presented Mr Liang with a terrarium that was handmade by us, as our small token of appreciation for gracing the event.
We would like to thank all the volunteers from Zheng Hua RC and Town Council who rendered their help to us on this special day. We would also like to appreciate all our parents and children for coming down to support our project, “Towards Zero Waste”. It would not have been the same without you!
