Today volunteer WaterWise Instructors Lyndo Ziqubu and Annie Waterhouse visited Carshalton Farm School on the outskirts of Mooi River KZN. A beautiful autumn day with the leaves on the trees just turning, it was a pleasure to drive towards Giants Castle to this lovely farm school. The principal Mr Majola had done Environmental courses in Germany and India so was very enthusiastic about WaterWise helping to keep the learners safe when playing in the river while also keeping the river clean.Lyndo introduced the learners to the idea that they must have a PLAN before the go swimming and that should a catastrophe occur that they should know what to do in an emergency. These learners already knew the Emergency number which was pleasing.The learners then coloured in the worksheet and had to discuss what was happening in the scene that was depicted. All did this with great enthusiasm. A very rewarding day in the foothills of the Drakensberg.
