World Environment Day Celebration at SJK (C) Lee Min

15 June 2015

In conjunction with World Environment Day, Datin Rossiti Aishah Rashidi, a local book writer and advocate for wildlife conservation delivered an educational talk on nature and environment to the pupils from one of the adopted schools under Setia Caring School Programme, SJK (C) Lee Min. This environmental initiative was organised to educate children on the importance of protecting the nature and environment as well as to inculcate the idea of caring towards the environment and nature.
Her session with the children also saw her reading excerpts from her books – Manja The Orangutan and Siti The Elephant, while children enthusiastically asked questions related to nature. The children were also educated on importance of conservation particularly the local wildlife through pictures of orangutans, turtles and elephants.
After the storytelling session and nature talk, the children were also given plastic bottles, coloured popsicle sticks, colour pens and stickers to produce and design their own plant pots. These pots were then filled with soil with tomato seeds planted by the children.
