Here at Ryde, we are always on the lookout for ways to uplift our community; in an effort to support those who are doing better for our communities and our environment, we would like to highlight My First Skool’s participation in Start Small Dream Big (SSDB) project that was initiated by Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA). The aim of this initiative is for preschools to create authentic platforms for children to innovate, problem-solve and tap on their unique strengths to help others.
Can you imagine a world without Orangutans? The tragic truth is that this can soon become a reality. What about doing your part to protect them? My First Skool Parkway Parade class of 2021 K1 children are calling upon all Singaporeans to help protect the Orangutans by going green! Yes, by salvaging used packaging, plastic bottles, papers used at work or school as well as purchasing recycled products where possible, you will be doing your bit to save the homes of the Orangutans as well as our earth! In My First Skool Parkway Parade, our K1 children had experienced first hand on making papers from scratch out of unwanted papers such as newspaper, magazines, packaging paper, etc. From that experience, they understood the fact that many trees have to be cut down just to make one ton of paper, and the more papers they use, the more trees have to be cut down. Children also explored many different ways to reuse our everyday plastic bottles from creating a bird feeder to recycled bags. However, we can only do this much in school. What about our families, friends and everyone in Singapore? Ultimately, we hope that through the advocacy, many more people will understand how our actions daily could impact the well-being of the wildlife because…
“No one can do everything but everyone can do something”.
Let’s GO GREEN, MAKE A DIFFERENCE, SAVE THE EARTH!
