Educational value

  • Hartford College
    The education content covered is extremely relevant, learners are taught in a fun way which helps them to absorb the information.
     
  • Springvale Primary School
    Excellent use of the theme, children learnt so many facts in an extremely fun way. Teamwork was always encouraged. Discipline & handling of problems was fair consistent and loving.
     
  • CBC Pretoria
    The facilitators did a brilliant job covering the curriculum links especially especially the importance of wetlands. The content was well explained at their level. Very interesting to learn about the plants found on wetlands etc. because they are not always mentioned or discussed in the textbooks.
