Dr Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State for Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (SMS) & Ministry of Health, visited NurtureStars Pre-school at SAFRA Toa Payoh
In conjunction with Singapore World Water Day (SWWD), Dr Amy Khor visited NurtureStars Pre-school, which is one of the edu-services under the Crestar Education Group, during their water rationing exercise.
In March 2017, 3,000 students from all of Crestar's 31 centres joined this exercise, where they were taught the importance of water as well as how to value and conserve water. Children were encouraged to bring 2 empty bottles (1.5 litres each) to school. Their teachers then filled up these bottles with water for their day’s needs as the centres turned off water supply for 4 hours to simulate a “no water” scenario. Parents were also encouraged to participate in a follow-up activity by monitoring their water usage/bills at home in the following two months.
Other Crestar brands include Kinderland, ELFA, and Skool4kidz.
