Community Education

SIYAKHULA PRE-SCHOOL

Once a week, volunteers visit the little ones from the ages of 3 to 7 and give a lesson on the basics of marine conservation. All teaching is done in English (translated by the teachers); therefore the kids enjoy an educative day, all while learning a second language. It has been proven that getting the information to people at an early age will enhance their chances of making a concrete difference in the bettering of our environment.

LUNCHBOX THEATRE, The Whale Show

We are presently sponsoring LunchBox Theatre, an educational theatrical company. The cast tours around the Garden Route to perform The Whale Show, a piece on whale conservation. The kids become quickly excited and engaged in the show due to the overwhelming passion and commitment to their message.
