Cheras Earth Day 
Chess Tournament
Organised by 
Cheras Chess Academy (Master Collin Madhavan)
and International Youth Centre 
EVIZ Rated event
(Kuala Lumpur)  

About 160 children participated in the Cheras Earth Day Chess Tournament on 22 April 2018. The event organised by Cheras Chess Academy and the International Youth Centre (IYC). 

  Apart from the usual excitement of playing chess and winning prizes, the children were all given two door gifts, a mint plant seedling as well as a non woven bag to be used whenever possible instead of plastic bags. The highlight of the Earth Day event was the children were treated to a guided tour of the Urban Farming facility that is part of IYC's contribution to sustainable growth. For many of these city kids this was an eye opener. They were even allowed to feed the fish in the giant holding tanks. 

   Here are some of the photos from the memorable day.

Yes, there's always time for fun! Hello girls.

So much to see, so much to learn.

This girl was fascinated at the setup.

Smile!! You're on 'Candid Camera'! 

It's feeding time at the fish tanks

One little boy wanted to jump into the tank to catch some fish. 

It's the first time for some of these kids learning about fish breeding
