SUN Club Activities for 2009 - 2009

Sponsored by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) Foundation and initiated by National Parks Board (NParks) in 2006, the Special Projects to Understand Nature’ (SUN) Club programme is founded on the idea of ‘nature for everyone’. It is the first nature outreach programme for students with special needs.

SUN Club offers nature appreciation projects that these special needs children can enjoy and participate fully in.

Under the programme, field trips are organised to parks and nature reserves to allow these students from special schools to have more opportunities to understand and appreciate nature. They are also involved in interactive activities during the trips.

The programme started off in 2006 with nature trails to Pulau Ubin, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, benefiting some 500 students.

Due to overwhelming response, the following years saw the programme expanded with 50% more field trips. More locations were also added, including Pasir Ris, East Coast Park and Fort Canning Park.

Currently, an average of 60 trips per year are organised to the six parks, benefiting about 1,200 children.
