Singapore World Water Day is celebrated throughout the month of March. This March, Little Footprints Preschool collaborated with PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency to celebrate the importance of water.
Here’s a recap!
Little Footprints @ Woodlands 551 and Yishun 366 were invited to display their projects at the Marina Barrage.
Little Footprints @ Yishun 366’s Teaching Garden and Rainwater Recovery System model.
They designed a Rainwater Recovery System to water the plants in their backyard garden!
Children learned to appreciate water from the tap by understanding how water used to be collected in the olden days.
Above all, they had the opportunity to present their projects to Guest-of-Honour President Halimah Yacob, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli and Senior Minister of State for the Environment and Water Resources Dr Amy Khor. It was an incredible experience and exposure for our young children to hone their public speaking skills.
Watch their presentations!
