Water Watch Penang (WWP) successfully hosted the ‘Negalitres for Schools’ River and Water Education Programme for students from SJKC Kong Min Cawangan Satu, Penang, on October 9, 2023. A total of 135 students and 15 teachers participated in this program from 8:15 am to 10:00 am.
WWP’s Senior Facilitator, Ms. Ong Ke Shin, an alumna of the school, conducted the entire educational session in Mandarin. Ms. Ong began with a brief introduction to WWP, followed by an awareness session covering global, national, and local water issues. She emphasized the students’ involvement in the Negalitres for Schools program and discussed various water-saving technologies and how to use them correctly. Ms. Ong also educated the students on water-saving practices, both at school and at home. To assess the students’ understanding, she conducted a quiz, and winners received coloring books from WWP.
Towards the end of the session, students were provided with water-saving guides from PBAPP and shown short water-saving videos.
