Sophakama Primary School visit to Rietvlei
Page 1/11 next >>
Elzette Krynauw, Senior People and Conservation Officer: North Region, of the City's Biodiversity Management Branch, reports as follows:
I want to say a big thank you to the Friends of Rietvlei for sponsoring the two busses for Sophakama Primary to visit the Table Bay Nature Reserve!
We had the Grade 7’s with a few extra grade 3’s on the second day. I only got to take photos of the second visit. They are not the best quality, but it gives the general feeling of how much the learners enjoyed the day.
Jade took the Grade 7’s for a miniSASS activity (photos 1 and 10 where Jade is explaining the activity and one where the teacher is also looking for the invertebrates which the learners caught with their nets.)
I had the Grade 3’s and surprisingly, for the first time language was not a problem! They just loved being at the nature reserve, they enjoyed using the binoculars and what a bonus it was to have some Xhosa bird names on the ID charts! They taught me a few names and was very willing to learn a few English names.
The teacher, Mr Tschuma, has at last been permanently employed at the school and I am looking forward to build on the relationship we have with Mr Tschuma and the school.
