The participants were exposed to an interactive environment, created by lead facilitator Raymond Cockburn of the Youth Division. In his first session, he focussed on usage in the English language environment; he utilized interactive media – multi-media, video and paper work.

The main aim of Project E-magination is to provide participants with a stimulating environment, encouraging them to want to learn, improve their reading and writing skills and mathematical skills. This is being done through creative and critical thinking, creative writing and stimulation.

Sponsor of this outreach programme by the Division is Log Enterprises.
