Learning Journeys


P6 Science Learning Journey to River Safari 
The learning journey aimed to raise an awareness on the need for the conservation of wildlife among our students. The learning journey further helped to enrich students’ knowledge on the different types of adaptations of animals. During the journey, Science teachers walked the students through the five exhibits of the different major rivers that can be found in the world and they explored the different species of aquatic animals and plants found in each river.

World Water Day
Internationally, World Water Day is held annually on 22 March, a day designated by the United Nations to celebrate the importance of water and the need for conservation. This year, Damai Primary School partnered with PUB on the Singapore World Water Day (SWWD) to spread water conservation messages to our students. 

Over a period of three days, from 9 to 11 April, water conservation exhibition panels and a game booth were set up during recess. Trained Green Ambassadors from the Environmental Club were stationed at the booth and they played their part in explaining to their peers, good water saving habits. They guided the students in playing the water efficient game too! In addition, students also participated in quizzes at the booth which helped to reinforce their learning and they won for themselves attractive prizes.
