Visiting the Tropical Biodiversity Centre (TBC) not only exposes students to the diverse flora and fauna in the Sultanate but also enhances and strengthens what the students had learnt in class by allowing first-hand viewing and interaction, said Pengiran Anak Puteri Hajah Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Secondary School (SMPAPHRSB) teacher Suraya binti Haji Abdullah.
She was one of two teachers accompanying 14 Year 10 students from SMPAPHRSB during a visit to TBC on Thursday.
Senior forestry officer of the Forestry Department Zaeidi bin Haji Berudin welcomed the group at the centre and gave a brief talk detailing the centre’s daily operations.
The students also visited the exhibition halls where various displays detailed the flora and fauna in the surrounding area. Suraya, who led the visit, said the students were studying travel and tourism at the school.
She added that the school plans to conduct visits to other travel and tourism hotspots such as Eco Ponies Garden in Tutong District, and the Seria Energy Labs.
