Teachers' Workshop

Teachers' Respond to the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust's Teachers' Workshop

See Video

“Reinforced learning allows for better teaching and knowledge transfer to students. The ‘hands-on’ lab session, where examined and dissected wetland plants revealed new information for me and is useful both to my subjects- Biology and Environmental Science.

I propose that more schools become involved in field visits to the Trust for various subjects- Biology, Environmental Science, Geography and Integrated Science.”

“What I most appreciated was the variety of resources ranging from print to video, to hands on lab, to outdoor learning. This really hammered home the importance of teachers providing a wide range of learning activities and opportunities to their students.”

“I was fortunate enough to participate in a wetland Conservation workshop hosted by and at the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust. As an Educator, employed by youth Ministry of Education. I believe that this has increased my knowledge and capabilities of disseminating vital subject matter to my Environmental Science classes. The approach used was a hands on one whereby different aquatic environments were explored and natural flora and adaptations were documented.”

-Leon Samaroo,

Fatima College, Port-of – Spain

 

“I would like to take this opportunity to commend you and your team on the fantastic work done at the Pointe-a-Pierre Wild Fowl Trust (PAPWFT). I have been a member since 2013 and every visit to The PAPWFT has been a rewarding and memorable experience.

 “I can never place a price on the number of things I learnt. I feel more equipped to educate my students on the importance of wetlands. This experience has been more valuable than looking at a documentary. Right here in South Trinidad, we can experience the value and wonders of a wetland. We can interact with the environment, carry out exercises and get idea on spreading awareness.”

The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust is proud to be supported by the German Embassy in Trinidad and Tobago again with a grant which would enable the Trust's outreach programme "Adapting to Climate Change". Trust Educators will visit schools specifically in rural areas of Trinidad and Tobago to share educational programmes to the youth engaging them in discussions and showing them that a "green lifestyle" helps fight climate change. 

The Embassy and the Trust have been long standing partners since 2011 in raising the awareness about climate change.
