Entopia by Penang Butterfly Farm brought the voice of nature to the children of St. Joseph’s Home in collaboration with a group of degree students of Engineering from Segi College Penang last Saturday, April 29.
Entopia presented the children with an up close and personal experience with our live exhibits such as the creepy tarantula and the cute leopard gecko. Among the other activities conducted was the “Insect Jump” game, where the children challenged each other to see who could jump the furthest in comparison with the long jumpers of the insect world. The students from Segi College Penang also helped to conduct the activities.
The idea of visiting the home was a heartfelt intention to provide the children the opportunity to experience something out of the ordinary, and gain new knowledge about the mysterious world of invertebrates.
Prior to the event day, the employees of Entopia had come together to raise some funds and collected donations in kind for the home. The degree students of Engineering from Segi College Penang had also donated food supplies to St Joseph’s Home. At the end of the meaningful event, Entopia received a plaque from the representative of Segi College Penang as a symbol of appreciation.
Located in the same compound with St Francis Xavier Church off Penang Road, St Joseph’s Home was founded by Catholic Missionaries in the year 1865.
