Continuing Antelope Park's focus on raising much-needed funds for the ALERT Education Centre (AEC), volunteers have raised $137 at another of their regular trivia nights.
Having learnt about the work of the AEC, several of the volunteers were interested in participating in a Conservation Education class with students from Mkoba 4 Primary School. Together they played a version of ‘Who Am I?’ using Africa's wildlife as the theme. This was a fun and interactive game, which helped further develop the children's understanding of the animals they have learnt about during classes at the Centre.
Funds are urgently needed to keep the ALERT Education Centre running. If you are able to make a donation towards the next generation of ‘Conservation Stars', please visit our website. Your support is appreciated.
With students settling back into the third week of classes since their holidays, Antelope Park volunteers have returned to Mkoba 4 Primary School. Children in the Special Needs class were excited to see the volunteers again. Their new teacher, Mrs Blandina, welcomed the volunteers and was very appreciative of the assistance they provided in supporting students with grammar work and mathematics.
During a break in lessons, the students swarmed around the volunteers, leading them to the playground to play games and enjoy time getting to know each other.
