Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang recently held its first interactive and educational turtle conservation programme for 80 primary school children from SJK (C) Eok Hua and SJK (C) Pai Chai.
“Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa is pleased to give back to the local community of Batu Feringgi, where we operate, as well as Teluk Bahang, where many of our staff are from. We designed a fun and interactive Sanctuary Programme, with lots of games, recycled art and storytelling aided by simple visuals. The objective of the Sanctuary Programme is to educate the school kids, who are our future leaders.
