Snake awareness session with the experts!

Friday, October 21, 2016

Thank you to Francois Theart, Ipinge Agapitus and colleagues from the Snake Conservation Association of Namibia for visiting Wake up and giving a most enlightening presentation on snakes today. They focused on teaching us 3 rules today: Stop, Retreat and Call an Adult. There was also time for questions and answers about snakes and for the children to interact with a non-venomous snake. I am sure this experience has raised our childrens' awareness and respect for snakes.

Thanks to our senior volunteers

Thanks to our senior volunteers

Lately we have had some senior volunteers. It was a pleasure to have these ladies around, willing to take on any challenge, very practical and hands-on.

The roof of the play hut and the kitchen on the playground got a shade, various items were repaired, books were covered. They made the children smile.  If there are more grannies out there considering a time-out from the ordinary: you are welcome!
