MORE workshop for Marine Park volunteers

Yes, we can make a difference for our Marine Park! 30 new and old volunteers gathered for the second round of Classroom Workshops, as part of preparation to be volunteer guides at the Marine Park.
Yesterday, we had a great time brainstorming ideas on how to conduct fun and meaningful walks for visitors. Thanks to enthusiastic participants, and the hard work put in by NParks and volunteers to make these possible.

Here's November Tan of the Leafmonkey Workshop getting us started.
November gathers a quick round of House Rules for how we should conduct the workshop!
One of the objectives of a Leafmonkey Workshop is to allow like-minded people to network and meet.
With the help of technology, we had a great time doing collaborative note-taking and sharing of ideas! Lots of images were added to the shared document! Including images of the group names.
The highlight of the workshops are the role-playing sessions. We have fun playing as well as watching some of the creative ways to deal with tricky situations.
Like how to deal with visitors who like to poke marine life.
Everybody loves to take selfies. But we must try to make sure our marine life is not harmed in the process.
Thanks to all the regular Marine Park guides who helped facilitate. Vincent came to help and video taped us even though he had injured his hand.
Special thanks to Mui Shan for taking care of all the admin and the collaborative sharing during the session. And to Mummy November for guiding us all throughout the workshop. Also thanks to Nparks for providing the lovely room, the delicious snacks, and taking care of all the arrangements so we could have these great sessions.
Thanks to everyone for coming, and to all the speakers and volunteers who came to help. We will be going for our Field Trip session later today. I'm looking forward to it.
