Young un's teaching the even younger!

Category : education

18 Apr 2007 - Raffles Museum's first batch of Junior Gallery Guides began conducting guided tours at the Public Gallery this afternoon. These P4 and P5 student volunteers from Qifa Primary School were given four hours of training during the March holidays. Twenty guides were paired up and assigned a station each. Each pair had to work on a guiding script for their station and were given tips on crowd management, conduct in the gallery and guiding.

This afternoon, they put their preparations to the test by guiding a class of P3 students from their own school. Participants were divided into small groups of 5 and roved from station to station, listening to the stories that the guides were relating.

The guides were enthusiastic and had even prepared small tokens to be given away during the quiz time! As the enthusiastic voices of the guides filled the air, museum staff who passed kept telling others, "you gotta see this!" Indeed they are speaking like pros.

Each pair of guides told their story six to eight times on 18th April, and will look forward to sharing their stories even more when four more classes of P3s visit the museum over the next few weeks!
