The volunteer WaterWise team from Station 20 were invited to present a workshop to 70 Girl Guides, aged 9-17 years and 6 Educators at the Amavenya Primary School at Ixopo, Southern KZN on Saturday the 4th of October 2014.
The guides, representing five troops from six schools in the area, were on a three-day camp at the school.
“All of them are from the leader group of the different troops so they will be able to spread the WaterWise word when the camp is over”, Audrey de Jager one of Station 20’s team said after the workshop. The educators with the group said there was a definite need for more workshops in the area because there are numerous rivers and streams that crisscross it, all of which tend to flood during the rainy season posing a risk to those trying to cross. They added that they intend discussing the matter with the school principals in the area.
