We received a request from a
primary school in Langkawi for a study tour of our grounds. They
planned to bring 80 students for 2 hours. We were spellbounded for a
while. Then we decided to draw out a special programme to make this
session with us a memorable one for the children.
Starts at 8:30 am and ends at 10:30 am
The children were pre-divided into four groups to make the size more
manageable. We created four special corners in the grounds to keep the
children occupied the whole two hours.
A - Herbwalk with
Dr. Ghani - 30 minutes
Dr. Ghani will introduce the children to the world of Plants and the
wonders that lies within. Children will be shown plants with fragrant
flowers, leaves and will be taken into the mangrove backyard of
Herbwalk to see some mangrove trees.
B - Story time
with Pak Long Bashah - 30 minutes
Pak Long is a very interesting person to listen to. The children love
him and his stories. He normally allows them to choose one of three
themes to talk on:
C - Hands on Clay with Abang Adil -
The Legend of Mahsuri
The History of Langkawi
World War II in Langkawi
Abang Adil has a
small pottery work where he creates souveniers for visitors to Herbwalk
and Langkawi. He will take the children into the world of pottery and
allow them to dirty their little hands playing with his lump of clay.
D - Make
your own bookmark with Auntie Nona - 30
Auntie Nona and
Auntie Roshadah are two child experts who will show the children how to
make bookmarks. Children will be given little cards and are asked to
match the plant name on their card with labelled dried plant leaves.
They are then asked to used their own creativity to make a bookmark
which will be laminated for them.
