Funding has also been used to assist various other small community projects such as the Paterson Clinic and Bavumeleni Crèche. From here on funding will be used to maintain projects and assist with other educational needs at the schools. I would also like to use the opportunity to thank the various sponsors that helped to make all these projects possible by assisting us with funds, great discounts and support and the World Wide Experience Volunteers for helping with all the hard work and labour that went into these projects.
The project has been very quiet this month due to mid-year exams and now school holidays. We have a very busy term ahead of us with Rhino Day, Clean Up and Arbour Week. So as soon as the schools reopen I will have to have a meeting with the co-ordinators. Looking forward to the term ahead although it is my busiest time of year I am excite for all the activities lined up!
This month I took the students to see the Addo National Park Interpretive Centre where they gained a lot of information about the animals and plants of this area.
