Nanyang Girls High School prepare for Hopea sangal education workshop

Category : toddycats

Students from Nanyang Girls High School (NYGH) have completed a series of Hopea sangal education workshops conducted by members of the Working Group that looked after the felled tree's logs - Wang RuoBing (Sculpture Society), Derek Yap (National Parks Board), Vilma D'Rozario (Nature Society (Singapore)) and N. Sivasothi (Raffles Museum). This programme has been coordinated initially by November Tan and now by Gywnne Lim (Raffles Museum Toddycats).

The (NYGH) students conducted a dry run of the stations and their techniques were evaluated, in preparation for the workshop they will be conducting for two primary schools next week. In the photo below, students depict the events of 20 November 2002 when Sivasothi first visited the rare Hopea sangal tree. He could not find it, and instead there were felled logs on the grass. Confused, he called Joseph Lai for the specific location of the tree and eventually had to tell him "A stump is all I see".
