Year 5 had an incredible adventure at Kepong Botanical Garden and Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM). This was a great opportunity to support the learning they have done in International Primary Curriculum (IPC) this year about plants and the natural environment.
The highlight of the trip was undoubtedly the Forest Skywalk, where they walked along a suspended bridge 141 meters above the forest floor. Despite some initial fears, many of the students overcame their anxiety and felt proud of themselves for conquering their fear of heights. From the Skywalk, they were able to enjoy the magnificent views of the natural surroundings and appreciate the beauty of the forest from a whole new perspective.
After the exhilaration of the Skywalk, the students continued their adventure by exploring the wonders of the forest. They went on a nature trail and were amazed by the rich variety of flora and fauna that surrounded them. The forest was full of life, and the students learned about the different types of plants and animals that called it home. One of the most fascinating sights was the tall tree canopies that formed Crown Shyness. The gaps between the trees' canopies created a stunning pattern that was both beautiful and mysterious.
Overall, the Year 5 students had an unforgettable trip to Kepong Botanical Garden and Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM). They were able to face their fears, appreciate the beauty of nature, and learn about the importance of protecting our environment. This trip was a valuable experience that will stay with them for years to come.
