We went to Pulau Ubin as a school! On the 3rd of June, cool and sunny morning, we journeyed to the north-eastern part of Singapore did some exploration around a part of Singapore that many have only heard about, but not yet been to. After a quick breakfast at Changi Village, we took a short boat ride in groups of 12, with staff, students and family members looking out for one another’s safety and well-being in unity.
Throughout our walk around the island, we saw macaque monkeys, wild boars, monitor lizard, various birds, flora and fauna. We had the privilege to practice some curiosity and observe all of this in their natural habitat. Everyone did their best to encourage one another in the midst of the light rain, muddy puddles, humidity and heat. There was great atmosphere during the walk and everyone was in excellent spirits and attitude.
There were quite a number of durian fruit all around – it was probably the harvesting season, so we had to take extra care not to step on them, or be ambushed by them falling on our heads from the trees. Despite the weather conditions, we managed to clock a total of 7km and reached our final location at the Chek Jawa Boardwalk!
All in all, it was a wonderful opportunity to get out and experience nature as a school. Being open to an outdoor trip, under the mercy of the weather certainly made the day enjoyable!
