This project is a virtual “service trip” where students formed small groups to plan and conduct hour-long lessons, teaching children living in small villages in Cambodia how to maintain proper hygiene and wash their hands properly. We hope that after the children learnt how to practice hygiene, they could go home and educate their family members as well.
All of the Year 5 groups worked hard during the September holidays, planning and creating lesson plans, visuals and resources to use in their lessons. Lessons were geared to be as engaging and enjoyable for the children as possible. Students had a chance to use their creativity to come up with new ideas on how to make lessons fun, with some groups coming up with songs and dances; while others used storytelling and raps to teach. The groups then conducted their lessons on different days over the first two weeks of Term 4 via Google Meet.
As a bonus, the project was featured on Channel News Asia and News 5 on Tuesday, 13 October. Check out the news: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Op45vxaZ9V4&feature=youtu.be
