November/December 2018 Updates! (Wizard of Oz play, museum tour and more!)

Hi all!

November was filled with awesome activities, such as an outing to Esplanade—Theatres on the Bay where we enjoyed a fantastic musical/play of The Wizard of Oz, and visiting the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum to learn more about biodiversity and view various specimens of interesting animals!

The Wizard of Oz Musical

Members headed over the the iconic Esplanade Theatres (yep, it's the one shaped like a durian) to enjoy a play put on by students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Some of you may be familiar with this childhood classic, The Wizard of Oz. Members were entranced by the colourful stage and musical numbers as they followed Dorothy's adventures through the magical land of Oz. They even got to take pictures with the cast members such as Courage the Cowardly Lion and Dorothy herself! It was truly an unforgettable experience for all of us.

Outing to Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum

The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, located in the National University of Singapore (NUS) houses an expansive collection of interesting natural history exhibits and artefacts, and is home to three large dinosaur fossils. Members were taken on a guided tour of the museum, where they learnt about the history behind some of the exhibits and animals featured. The interactive tour with video shorts and touchable exhibits was able to engage members'; they really enjoyed the experience and went home that day having learnt a little something about our wonderful earth and its inhabitants. Awesome!

Here's what Shannon, a volunteer, had to say about the outing to LKCNHM:

"On 24 November, we had an outing to the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum as part of the lead-up to our annual RO Camp, which is animal-themed this year. At the museum, members learnt about the different life forms that have walked this earth over the course of history. Having admired the stuffed specimens and marvelled at the impressive fossils, the members had an absolutely thrilling educational journey! I was glad that the members enjoyed the outing as much as I did (I love natural history!), and I hope that this will help to inculcate a love and appreciation for animals in them."


Members thoroughly enjoyed the lineup, which was both educational and fun. Look forward to more exciting activities in the near future!
