CHILDREN of Taska Seri Growell in Bandar Baru Selayang, Selangor, were taken to the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (Frim) recently for a romp with Mother Nature.  

The trip was part of the kindergarten’s year-end school holiday programme, aimed at improving schoolchildren’s proficiency in English through projects and fun activities.  

While the older children attempted the challenging Canopy Walk, the younger ones were taken for a nature walk. A tour guide and two teachers accompanied each group, which learnt about the different types of trees and vegetation. 

The children were particularly fascinated with a type of vine that Tarzan and animals use to swing from one tree to another. 

After a two-hour trek, the children were taken to the Frim museum, and then for then for a slide show presentation on the importance of the forest.
