School Talk FAQ

What is WWF Talks?

WWF Talks series focuses on four topics: forest conservation, ocean conservation, climate change and wildlife. The topics are delivered as assembly talks or as a class talk for a minimum of 50 students. The talk will include information about Panda Junior and WWF Workshops. Some talks are supported by exhibition panels, interactive mobile app and/or printable learning resources.

Who is it suitable for?

This programme is suitable for a range of age groups from preschool to the workplace. Please write to us at edu@wwf.sg if you need more information.

Do you offer the talks to companies, organisations and other groups?

We offer a modified version to organisations and community groups. Please write to us at edu@wwf.sg if you need more information.

Who mans the exhibition panels and mobile learning trail?

The exhibition panels and mobile learning trails are designed to be user-friendly and self-explanatory. However, some schools have found it useful to deploy their student leaders to be on hand to guide their schoolmates and explain the learning materials. If a mutually agreeable timeslot can be found, we can conduct a pre-exhibition briefing for such student leaders. The briefing for climate change trail is done over an hour and typically involves teachers and students.

Fundraise for WWF

Besides helping to defray the costs for the programme, which is offered free to schools, fundraising for WWF is also a good opportunity for the students to bring about change through awareness campaigns and cause-related fundraising. These actions can easily fit into the school's existing Integrated Project Work (IPW), Character and Citizenship Education (CCE), Values in Action (VIA), and Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) projects. This creates opportunity for students to pick up new knowledge and awareness from the talks and get creative with plans to spread that awareness and measure their impact through their fundraising efforts.

Additional information for climate change trail

What will we provide to schools?

  • Access to a mobile app that can be downloaded onto multiple devices
  • Copies of an A1-sized information sheet on climate change and carbon footprint that sets the context for the trail and serves as the starting point for the trail
  • Soft-copies of a set of images that are to be printed out and pasted at designated locations around the school. These images serve as trail markers as they trigger missions on the mobile app.
  • A 1-hr briefing session for teacher-in-charge and/or student leaders on how to use the app and set up the trail

What does the school need to prepare?

  • Download mobile app onto the smart devices before the first day of activity roll-out
  • Set-up trail markers at recommended stations around the school
  • Mount-up information sheets (A1-sized) that serves as starting point for trail. Put up the information panels in school hall/lobby
  • For Primary Schools, it may be necessary to station teachers or student leaders at each of the 6 stations along the trail to help them with the missions
