The MMAEP were lucky enough to visit Sibongumbomvu Combined School near Cedara on Wednesday and meet the dynamic Vanessa McKay who started working there 4 weeks ago as the Grade 4, 5, 6 & 7 English teacher and who is radically transforming the school. We also met the inspiring Beth Drennan who volunteers and runs the library at the school and ensures that the learners have access to books on a regular basis and a real appreciation of their value. On this particular day I worked with the Grade 6 & 7's introducing them to the word Biodiversity (and was thrilled when they came up with the words Biosphere and Bio-fuels) we looked at the concept of trees as habitats and practiced some 'genius' techniques with quiet time and breathing exercises. We read 'The Lorax' by Dr. Seuss and then skipped outside to plant a Celtis Africana or White Stinkwood near the the tap run-off. The younger children danced and sang and blew loving kisses to the tree! In the meantime some big lads were fixing the fence with extra fencing I had brought to the school. What a positive day! The school is planning on becoming an WESSA Eco-School next year and many thanks are due to the Worlds View Conservancy and the Midlands Conservancies Forum for arranging this visit.
