Schools helping with Rhino's

Unread postby Heksie » Fri Sep 14, 2012 8:08 pm

This is a short story...
We had gathering hall one Monday for the schools normal activities and then the art teacher shared a video with us. This is a project that she and the Gr8's did together with Honorary rangers. It is sad but the idea is heartbreakingly beautiful. I'm just a student teacher but I have never been so proud of being part of a school and a WONNIE (Highschool Wonderboom) then I was at that moment.

I just want to share with you guys what they did to help a cause that all of us feel so strong about.

You can buy them in all the Parks shops in Kruger :thumbs_up: I'm not sure about the other Parks :hmz: But if you buy 1 they donate R5 I think towards Anti Rhino Poaching. I hope there is someone that knows a bit more than I do about this.
