PCF Sparkletots Preschool @ MacPherson Blk 108 continues its collaboration with National Library Board (NLB) for SSDB 2023, focusing on the theme “Caring for Our Environment, Caring for our Public Libraries” where children are introduced to concepts related to sustainability such as the 3Rs through stories.
Children had a pre-visit to Sengkang Public Library where they had an opportunity to interact with the librarian. Children were intrigued as they observed how books were sorted on the auto-sorter machine.
In class, children engaged in discussions with teachers on ways to encourage sustainability in libraries. Children shared ideas such as creating reusable bags using used T-shirts, making card holders using drink cartons and also tote bags out of plastic bags. With the support of parents in donating recycled materials such as used T-shirts and drink cartons, children completed their crafts in class with close facilitation by teachers.
Children’s completed crafts are then displayed at Geylang East Public Library. We hope that the public would be able to recreate the crafts too and join us in promoting sustainability.
