Green, green workshops! (Day Two)

Author: 

The second day of CBN's Green, Green Theme workshop at Enlighten Education Trust in Hermanus had all children returning - plus a couple of extra additions.
Morning activities followed much the same pattern as on Day One, followed by a break for lunch of hot dogs that were much appreciated. To recap on Day One, please visit:

After lunch we were joined by Xolani Lawo from APSS (African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary), who shared his passion for penguins and his commitment to preventing the extinction of these marvellous birds. His talk was so fascinating that the children kept asking really good questions long after their normal attention span would have evaporated.

This three-day workshop was also the launch of our Green Theme Toolbox – still needing some tweaking and additions, but a huge help in organizing and running the workshop.

The children were contacted and forms widely distributed through the wonderful librarian at Enlighten, Elmine Boonzaaier. Thank you!

As always, many thanks to the CBN team – Chantel Oosthuysen and Ellen Osman.

We are enormously grateful to Enlighten for funding and facilitating this workshop and allowing us the use of their marvelous venue. Special thanks are due to: Magriet Peter (Trust Manager) and Elaine Davie (Funding Manager), Elmine Boonzaaier (Librarian), Alex Forsyth (Art Facilitator) and her assistant Thulani Mapike, and Violet Swarts – who looked after the catering side of things.
