Nanyang Girls High School prepare for Hopea sangal education workshop

Category : nature

Students from Nanyang Girls High School (NYGH) have completed a series of Hopea sangal education workshops conducted by members of the Working Group that looked after the felled tree's logs.

The NYGH students now prepare for a workshop they will be conducting for two primary schools next week. In the photo below, students depict the events of 20 November 2002 when Sivasothi first visited the site of the rare Hopea sangal tree.

UNable to find the rare, old tree, the scene of felled logs on the grass nearby made him call Joseph Lai for the specific location of the tree. Eventually he had to break the news to Joseph, who had rediscovered the tree with his team just a few months earlier - "All I saw was a stump".

The felled tree logs are now a sculpture located the Singapore Zoo.
