25 May. 41 students and their teachers from Wisdom Spring Academy, Kajang, had a great camp at MBS Recreation & training Centre. The day was filled with fun and activities as the children discover what hazards and disasters are and get started on how to equip themselves on what to do before, during and after a natural disaster.
“Every dollar invested into disaster preparedness saves seven dollars in disaster aftermath. Get involved and help us spread the word! – United Nations Development Programme”
CREST is committed to include DRR as an integral part of the whole cycle of disaster response because preparedness not only saves dollars but saves lives too. Children need to be prepared too!
Juniors learn and retain with an action song, by getting their hands “dirty”, by exploration and discovery.
Seniors fascinated by what they can stuff into a 20L Go Bag for survival; have a feel of the fire extinguisher; discuss and share on what to do in different kinds of natural disasters.
Seniors studied floor plans and pictures of their school and share on what safety features are already in place and how they can make their school safer and better for all.
