On Monday, 30th November 2015, a one-day Teacher Coordinator’s workshop was organized by the Outreach Team for the effective delivery of Environmental Education in urban schools for the 2016 academic year. 19 teachers from 10 schools around the Western Area Peninsula National Park became certified as coordinators for our school programme, TKEEP. Teachers took a tour of the Sanctuary, became familiar with our Teachers Handbooks and Kids workbooks*, and brainstormed activities to further engage students during the next school year. The Teachers who volunteer as coordinators are very enthusiastic about the program. Cyril Kortu, Teacher Coordinator for one year states, “Environmental Education that includes wildlife conservation is vital in the fight against global warning, therefore, we must target the children at a tender age if we want to promote positive change towards environmental protection.” We’re happy to have Teachers and sponsors who make this programme possible!
*We are grateful to LUSH Cosmetics who sponsored both the Workshop and all of the workbooks!
