“Intaka is a thriving wetland ecosystem and as such it provides a perfect platform for this investigation particularly given the centre’s diverse educational team, which is fully equipped to run these courses.”
She said in so doing they were not only reducing the teacher workload required to prepare the investigation, but were also assisting the learners with a real hands-on, outdoor educational experience in a safe and secure environment. It is a double win scenario.”
Van der Vyver said while the programme was very popular with schools, not all were able to cover the costs involved including transport and materials.
“We are extremely grateful to Absa for sponsoring this programme enabling us to offer it to more than 1200 learners from 11 previously disadvantaged schools.”
She said beneficiary schools had been identified by the Life Science Subject Advisor of the WCED and to date they had hosted seven schools, each over a day or two with the balance due to visit in the next month or so.
Schools benefiting from the sponsored programme are Bishop Lavis; John Ramsay, Florida ; Uitzig, Inkwenkwezi, Masibambisane, Leiden; Voorbrug, Proteus; Robinvale and SInenjongo
