The Environmental Education Programme is centred around the two facilities on Zeekoevlei within the False Bay Ecology Park. The aim of the programme is to enable children the opportunity of visiting a conservation area & igniting a passion & interest in conservation & encourage an awareness of sustainable living. The education programmes are linked to the new school curriculum, CAPS, so as to support their in-school learning. However, the camps are definitely not all about structured learning as an important component of a child’s development is experiential learning – achieved through well-planned outdoor activities such as nature hikes, visits to the sewerage works and landfill sites as well as team building activities such as dragon-boat racing and the obstacle course.
Primary Objectives of the Education Programme are to:
- Provide quality, affordable Environmental Education Programmes to youths from all communities in the Cape.
- Help primary and high schools meet their Education needs in Human & Social Sciences, Life Orientation and Natural Science in line with the new school curriculum.
