ACS students learn more about tsunami
From CNA (Feb 11):
It has been over a month since the tsunami ravaged Asia, leaving a trail of death and destruction. But schools in Singapore are still lining up programmes to help students understand the disaster.
One of them is the Anglo-Chinese School. It is working with partners to screen videos and provide educational materials for its geography students in class. These will cover the science relating to natural disasters and raise public awareness in these topics.
But it is not all cold, hard facts. John Chao, Head of Humanities Department at ACS, said: "We also want them to look at the humanistic aspect of the tsunami. How we can help the countries affected by the tsunami?
"In fact, on 12th March, the school will be having a funfair and out of the total amount we raise, $100,000 will be given to the rebuilding programme in areas affected by the tsunami."
