An Enriching Sensorial Gardening Experience

Friday, February 16, 2018

People of all ages can enjoy gardening, but children in particular will have lots of fun in the garden, in addition to reaping educational benefits and enrichment from the sensorial experience. On 11 January 2018, we had the opportunity to share our knowledge and resources with the rest of the community as we welcomed Mediacorp into our premises.

Our gardening expert, Ms Cynthea from SuperFarmers and some of our preschoolers from the K1 and K2 levels shared about the process of extracting dye naturally from a plant, the Blue Pea Flower. This natural dye was then used by a chef to create a Peranakan delicacy, Kueh Bong Kong. In this episode featured in The Red Dot, telecast on MediaCorp 5 on 16th February 2018, Ms Cynthea also described about the experiences provided to our children in Chatsworth as they engage in gardening sessions with her and the representative of SuperFarmers.
