BLESSED FESTIVE SEASON Lessons learned from adventure and great quotes A message from ROAG to the true teachers and educators out there: Just like in an abseil, although going over the edge, never forget that you are not alone, there is a “Master Instructor” holding you safe on a belay rope. Just like many Hikes, there will be days of awesome, and days you wonder why you do what you do. Like with Rock Climbing, looking up, will get you there. Like with Mountaineering knots, some of the connections you make will be for a period, but some will be life lines, saving souls in their darkest nights. As with Navigation, there is a Compass in life, the book of life, a love letter that will guide you all the days of your life. Just like in Archery, there will be kids you teach that will become flaming arrows, impacting the nations. Like in a Treasure Hunt, “Wherever you find something extraordinary, you’ll find the fingerprints of a great teacher.” –Arne Duncan “A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.” –Mustafa Kemal Ataturk Education is not the filling of a vessel, but the lighting of a fire. Just like a camp fire on a freezing night, as a educator, you’re the most important part of a young student’s life. Your wormth and love of learning can be infectious and inspiring to any student you teach. Remember like the fire, how you nurture the courage in a pupil’s heart. An old japanese proverbs reminds us “better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.”

To the great teachers and educators-have an awesome rest this holiday and for those days you forget why you do what you do remember: “One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”―Malala Yousafzai

Two Oceans Aquarium Environmental Education Centre Booking Pack


Welcome to the Two Oceans Aquarium Environmental Education Centre School Groups - Discovery Centre lessons: The Two Oceans Aquarium’s Environmental Education Centre has a range of lessons designed to complement your visit and to focus the minds of your pupils on what they will experience when walking through the Aquarium. Each lesson focuses on a specific marine topic as well as general marine environmental issues. The lesson options are broadly CAPS compliant. This enables you to choose a topic related to class work that you might be covering during the year. Your visit to the Aquarium could thus serve as an introduction to a subject or revision of the subject. You are welcome to consult with our teaching team, before your visit, to arrange an activity specific to your requirements. Enrichment Courses: Our Marine Sciences Academy programme comprises several courses that cater for young people who have a passion for the ocean and who may be interested in a career in Oceanography or Marine Biology. These courses focus on interesting animals and environments. The Young Biologist course is aimed at Grade Tens who are interested in becoming Aquarium volunteers. Our Marine Science components provide enrichment for Grade Elevens who are interested in studying Marine Science at tertiary level. These courses and components are conveniently presented over weekends and school holidays. Please see further details on these courses in this booklet or visit our website on www.aquarium.co.za. Contact Details: For school group bookings, please contact Carrin Virèt on schools@aquarium.co.za or call +27(0)21 814 4559. For more information on our enrichment programmes and how to apply, please contact Katja Laingui on education@aquarium.co.za or call +27 (0)21 814 4555.

DISCOvEry CENTrE lESSONS Our activities guide students to discover and learn about freshwater, coastal and marine ecosystems through hands-on learning. Should you wish your activity to relate to a different topic, we would be happy to discuss your requirements and structure an activity accordingly. Please discuss this with our Bookings Coordinator.

Underwater wonders Recommended for touring groups and groups visiting the Aquarium for the first time. This exciting hands-on investigation of a selection of live rock pool animals enables multi-sensory exploratory learning about various adaptations for survival. For more senior grades we include food chains, food sustainability and marine environmental issues. Suitable for all phases

Fish lesson An activity aimed at investigating how fish have adapted to living in water as well as providing an introduction to a few unique fish species. In the past a fish dissection was done as part of this lesson. This is no longer done as sardines have been categorised a red-listed sustainable seafood product. Suitable for all phases

Water conservation A presentation on the importance of water and why we need to conserve it. Among other activities, this includes a hands-on investigation into how leaking taps waste water. An understanding of percentages and the calculation of averages are essential for this activity. Pupils are required to bring calculators and pens for this lesson. Intermediate and senior phase, Grade 6 onwards


Plenty of fish in the sea! Is this statement true? We will look at: the various effects fishing methods have on our marine resources e.g. overfishing and bycatch; Define the concept of sustainable and unsustainable use; and discuss the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (SASSI) as a way for consumers, retailers and restaurants to choose more sustainable seafood resources. Suitable for Grade 9s

rocky shore ecology This lesson activity introduces students to animals and plants found in rocky shore ecosystems. It also investigates the factors that influence their distribution. This activity can be in preparation of a rocky shore visit before you take your class to the seashore‌ You can also book one of our teachers to do a follow-up lesson at a rocky shore near you. Intermediate, senior and FET phase, Grade 6 onwards

Shark lesson An investigation using live shysharks to discover more about cartilaginous fishes and how they are related to bony fishes. We discuss the importance of sharks and their endangered status and debate whether they really deserve the negative reputation they currently have. Intermediate, senior and FET phase

exploring under our oceans Learn more about wrecks around the Cape coast and how they have become fantastic homes for all sorts of plants and animals. Each lesson also includes a handson introduction to some of the highlighted animals. (i.e. brittle stars, sea cucumbers and shy sharks.) After the lesson, the exploration can continue in the Aquarium, which showcases a multitude of habitats and organisms from our own offshore environments. Intermediate, senior and FET phase


Structures and skeletons A look at support structures and skeletons in animals focussing on invertebrate and vertebrate classification, using live animals as examples, where possible. We refer to fish, sharks, and rock lobsters and have arthropod exoskeletons as well as live sea anemones and sea urchins in the lesson for hands-on observation. Suitable for intermediate phase From Grade 5 - 8 and Senior.

Four pillars of smart living This lesson seeks to introduce the four pillars of Smart Living; then focusses on Biodiversity, using our coastline, the Aquarium displays and live animals in the classroom to illustrate the topic. The next phase of the lesson highlights littering, how much terrestrial litter ends up in the ocean and what practical measures can be taken to minimise this issue. This is rounded off with a practical exercise on sorting and recycling common litter items. Suitable for Grade 6 - 9s

Kelp forest ecology This hands-on activity explores kelp forest ecology, including the fascinating animals that can be found in the kelp holdfasts. Pupils will be introduced to the kelp forest ecosystem, its resident invertebrates and how they have adapted to survive. Suitable for senior and FET phase, Grade 8 onwards

data collection A hands-on activity in which students perform an investigation into sustainable pilchard harvesting. This is done through the scientific method of establishing the mass and length of pilchards in order to generate data which is collated and processed to be used for discussion on seafood sustainability. Pupils should bring pens. Suitable for senior and FET phase, Grade 9 onwards


marine sustainability issues An investigation using some live animal ambassadors to explore the concepts of biodiversity, sharks in crisis, seafood sustainability and marine pollution. Suitable for senior and FET phase, Grade 8 onwards

Biodiversity This activity is a hands-on investigation of the geographical and biological diversity of our two oceans, using a range of local rock pool invertebrates. Suitable for FET phase

invertebrates Scientific classification, definitions and principles of basic zoology are dealt with through a hands-on study of various animals representing a range of invertebrate phyla and classes. Suitable for FET phase

ecotourism in our two oceans This activity highlights the difference between the cold Atlantic and warm Indian Oceans and how they affect ecotourism along the South African coastline. Also involves a hands-on study of some common rock pool inhabitants. Specifically for students studying tourism. Suitable for FET phase

aims at having single-use plastic bags banned in South Africa. To this end, the Two Oceans Aquarium, in 2011, banned all staff and volunteers from bringing single-use plastic bags onto the premises. Visit www.rethinkthebag.org to learn how your class can make a difference to the environment by supporting this campaign and saying NO! to plastic bags.

Bishops Prep tackle ocean pollution and "Cut A Loop" Mandy Gloak

Home (https://www.aquarium.co.za) / Blog (https://www.aquarium.co.za/blog) /  Bishops Prep tackle ocean pollution and "Cut A Loop"

As part of the school curriculum, the Grade 4s at Bishops Preparatory School have to complete a section on water and water pollution as part of their Social Sciences module. Much of the focus of this module is about sewerage treatment and its effects on rivers (https://www.aquarium.co.za/blog/entry/11-reasons-whywetlands-are-vital-for-humans-and-animals), but the Grade 4s, some of whom have parents involved in ocean science, wanted to focus more on types of water pollution that they actually play a direct role in. Together with their teacher Mandy Gloak, these kids did something incredible!

(/cache/ce_img_cache/local/24be6a810f238a37/8db8c0e5-9beb-4948-86580d5a40bb2098_750_365_70.JPG)

The main focus of these kids was on the relationship between plastic and the ocean (https://www.aquarium.co.za/blog/entry/The-plastic-problem-How-muchplastic-pollution-is-in-our-ocean). The Grade 4s learned about the hazards posed by plastic pollution to sea life, particularly the risk of entanglement


ocean (https://www.aquarium.co.za/blog/entry/The-plastic-problem-How-muchplastic-pollution-is-in-our-ocean). The Grade 4s learned about the hazards posed by plastic pollution to sea life, particularly the risk of entanglement (https://www.aquarium.co.za/blog/entry/seal-and-turtle-tangled-in-ghost-fishinggear-rescued-by-nsri/). They learned about the "Cut A Loop (https://www.aquarium.co.za/content/page/cut-a-loop)" programme, aimed at snipping all loops in plastic waste so that they do not pose as serious an entanglement risk should they end up in a waterway. The kids put this into practice by collecting hundreds of plastic bottles and spending a day cutting all the loops.

(/cache/ce_img_cache/local/24be6a810f238a37/IMG_8291_640_480_70.JPG)

The Grade 4s also learned about single-use plastic items, eg. coffee cup lids, straws, and shopping bags. These items pose significant environmental risks because of their prevalence, so the kids discussed solutions and came up with alternatives to these items (https://www.aquarium.co.za/blog/entry/our-favouritealternatives-to-disposable-plastic-items).


provided some practical advice about how to put all the (/cache/ce_img_cache/local/24be6a810f238a37/IMG_8695_450_600_70.JPG) theory the kids had learned into action.

The kids also looked at ways to recycle and learned about all the resin codes found on plastic packaging and what they mean. They examined various food wrappers and packaging to figure out what the items were made of, if they could be recycled, and how they should be disposed of.

(/cache/ce_img_cache/local/24be6a810f238a37/IMG_8259_640_480_70.JPG)

A "track our trash" activity was done, where the Grade 4s used a map of Cape Town's natural waterways and manmade drainage channels and pipes to work out what would happen to a piece of litter that blew into a drain. Where would it exit into the ocean? How far would it flow to get there? By looking at this map, the kids learned that even inland suburbs are still having a direct impact on the sea.

(/cache/ce_img_cache/local/24be6a810f238a37/IMG_8726_450_600_7

The kids got to show off their creativity by (/cache/ce_img_cache/local/24be6a810f238a37/e62bb988creating cupcakes with an ocean pollution 6289-40ed-b30e-b3878e518583_450_600_70.JPG) theme.

(/cache/ce_img_cache/local/24be6a810f238a37/IMG_8717_450_600_7


It's always a pleasure to see schools being proactive about the environmental challenges facing us today. Plastic pollution is a challenge that has a simple solution, but one that needs the support of everyone - it's great seeing schools all over Cape Town taking a leadership role in the face of this issue, your learners are the future custodians of our oceans (and we think it will be left in good hands).

iSimangaliso Wetland Park <newsflash@isimangaliso.com> Tuesday, 19 November 2019 10:30 booking@allesmag.co.za Camping in iSimangaliso

Camping in iSimangaliso The iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site has a variety of accommodation options within the protected area, from luxury catered resorts to self-catering and camping. Even in tighter economic times, one often just wants a short, peaceful break in the wild. For those seeking a simple retreat in a glorious setting, camping can be just the ticket. Camp sites, mostly managed by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, are offered at several of the Park’s ‘Jewels’: Kosi Bay at Lake Nhlange, Sodwana Bay, Mabibi, False Bay, uMkhuze, Cape Vidal and St Lucia Estuary (Maphelane also has camp sites but the resort is currently closed). These sites are generally in some of the most scenic areas, offering an affordable way to spend some time in nature.

1


For seaside bliss, Cape Vidal (above) is regularly voted as one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top camping areas, with good reason. The sites are clearly demarcated with water and electricity points, plus neat ablutions. Tucked behind the soaring vegetated dunes under huge trees, the sites are protected from wind and even in bad weather, a day at Vidal beats a day in any office. And if that was not reason enough to visit, the resort is also situated within the big game section of the Eastern Shores section, and the beach is a nesting site for endangered sea turtles. Snorkelling and swimming in the small bay area are highly popular at this family-friendly resort.

Above: Kosi Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sites are positioned in a tranquil lee alongside Lake Nhlange (Third Lake) and are grassed, mostly shaded and have neat communal ablution blocks. Although they are far from the beach in terms of road access, if one has a

2


boat you can cross the Lake to park at Bhanga Nek, where a short walk takes you to a lonely, beautiful stretch of beach.

Above: Mabibi camp site is a true hidden gem, behind the crest of a steep vegetated dune close to Lake Sibaya. Here you will find nine sites with a decent communal ablution facility, as well as three permanent tented chalets. The latter are probably the best affordable accommodation deal in the whole Park, offering exactly the right amount of comfort for a great beach holiday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; electricity, (nonpotable) water, own bathrooms and fully equipped kitchenette as well as a private braai area. The site is run by the local Mabibi community under the management of Isibindi Africa, who own the luxury Thonga Beach Lodge nearby. Access to the beach is by way of 138 steps but the trek is so worth it for an endless stretch of beach and excellent low tide snorkelling.

3


Above: False Bay, which closed down many years ago due to persistent drought, is open for camping once again but not many seem to have re-discovered this. False Bay is all about birding, walking and cycling in a special pocket of incredibly biodiverse sand forest. Camp sites are located along the shores of the widest point of Lake St Lucia with wide open vistas and a whole lot of peace and quiet.

Above: Sodwana Bay has hundreds of camp sites – in its heyday these were immensely popular but in recent years, the number in use is much smaller. It is still the cheapest way to spend time close to the beach access at this outstanding scuba diving destination, but if a touch more comfort is desired then look at the nearby Coral Divers accommodation chalets that are currently undergoing super attractive upgrades.

For a bush option, you cannot beat the uMkhuze campsite near the eMshophi Gate. There are scant few places where one can camp in a big five reserve (the camping area is fenced though) and recent improvements to the ablutions make these much more user-friendly. The site may still be fairly rustic – electricity is only run part time on a generator and water is often restricted or even non-existent, especially in winter – but there is a pool and its position in the natural lee of a cliff has made it a firm favourite among regular fans. After all, when you can watch

4


elephants from your tent ‘stoep’ and hear roaring lions at night, a little rusticity is really worthwhile!

Currently the southernmost accessible site in iSimangaliso is Sugarloaf near the Lake St Lucia Estuary mouth (above). This large facility has 95 electrified sites, yet it never feels overcrowded even when full (December holidays) thanks to its enormous shady trees and vegetation screening off smaller sites. The big attraction is the large swimming pool, plus a walk of only a few hundred metres to the Estuary beach along the boardwalk. Any overflow bookings are redirected to the Eden Park camp site closer to town (20 sites), but guests staying there may use the facilities at Sugarloaf. As with all things, preparation is key, so before planning a camping trip check ahead on issues such as water availability and facilities. With the right equipment and attitude, the camp sites of iSimangaliso offer some of the best value in beautiful off-the-grid places. Visit www.isimangaliso.com for details of iSimangaliso’s camping and other accommodation options.

These can be received by email, or found on the website www.isimangaliso.com, together with other relevant Park information.

TALK TO US


RED Services Driver risk mitigation - Intermediate driver training www.redservices.co.za

Are you concerned about the skill levels of your children on the road?

You should be! For years we have trained in advanced driver training, the differing skill levels of people arriving at these courses is quite vast. Most younger drivers are not ready for advanced driver training and therefore a bridging course has been sorely needed. We have a unique training aid that allows drivers to learn what it feels like to lose control at a very slow speed, this is invaluable as it allows us to teach them many of the skills they would pick up at an advanced training course without all the risks of high speed attached. Skid pans can go wrong and many people have been in hospital beds because of them, traditional advanced driver training has led to over confidence amongst some youngsters and the nature of youth has led to some tragic consequences. The training we have devised leads to a healthy respect of a motor vehicle and what it feels like to lose control at a low speed, therefore training people to drive slower and respect the rules of the road. The Skid Car we have is the total solution for the newly licenced driver and is internationally recognised as valuable and therefore we are totally confident that it will teach the driver the skills they so desperately need. The practical component is followed with an on road defensive driver training component which will reduce the risk on the roads that we all face, the training incorporates many anti-hi jacking systems that also allow for safer driving. All parents dread sending their children onto the roads, this training programme can teach them respect for the roads and the skills taught may save them from harm.

Bookings can be made via the website or email richard@redservices.co.za

Higher Ground has been running programmes of therapeutic recreation (adventure camps) for people with disabilities since 2004. We are an NPO and are based in Durban. Our programmes are run at various venues within an hour or two of Durban, and occasionally in the Western Cape and Gauteng. We are passionate about running our 'camps' and feel that the benefits offered to

They gain indepartially sighted, adults pendence. They develop with acquired brain in- self worth. They network juries, young adults and offer each other peer with intellectual impair- support. They become ments, tertiary stumore physically active dents who are blind or and enjoy the great outpartially sighted and doors. The opportunities teens who are blind or really are endless! our participants are huge.


A secondary aim is to provide respite to parents and caregivers. They are able to rest and sometimes even have a holiday of their own whilst knowing that their loved one is having a wonderful time and is well taken care of. Volunteers 'staff' the camps. They are what make the programmes amazing and they are just incredible. They take care of any personal care needs our participants might have, assist with getting around and plan and run our activities. They are usually students or young working people who take time off to make a difference in the lives of our amazing participants. As a result they also gain great experience working with people who have disabilities, which we believe is beneficial to their own communities and spheres of influence.

Situated within the beautiful 1,000 hectare Umhloti Nature Reserve, 15 kilometres outside Nelspruit, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) South Africa Chimpanzee Sanctuary is home to chimps that have been misplaced from their natural habitats in Africa. Chimp Eden was established in 2006 and is home to 33 chimpanzees. This JGI chimpanzee sanctuary brings the world of chimpanzees closer to humanity through education end eco-tourism. The goal of the chimpanzee sanctuary is to rescue chimpanzees that have survived the bush meat trade, been orphaned, traded in the illegal pet market, or rescued from being traumatised for entertainment in circuses, beach resorts and night clubs.

Thomas

Bazia

Charlie The chimpanzees at Chimp Eden are the lucky ones, living out their lives in a risk free environment and being provided with the necessary attention to recover from the trauma they have experienced. The chimpanzees spend their days in semi-wild enclosures, and show normal social interaction and behavioural patterns as group members. The South African chimpanzee sanctuary is proud to be part of the Jane Good Institute, which is a global leader in the effort to conserve and preserve endangered species and habitats, and in particular chimpanzees.


On your guided tour, each chimpanzee is introduced and their often sad stories are told in an effort to create awareness and educate the guests on the struggles wild chimpanzees face and what we all can do to help save an protect these beautiful creatures for our future generations.

Martha The sanctuary is open to the public 7 days a week. Two chimpanzee families are visited on the 3 daily tours (10:00am, 12:00pm &14:00pm)

Cozy

The sanctuary is a non-profit organization and rely greatly on donations from the public and the guests that visit the sanctuary and support us by doing a tour, becoming a chimpanzee guardian or simply buying a unique gift in our curio shop.

storytelling and game playing in a fun and educational way, which will keep kids engaged for hours at a time as they develop their reading and learning skills.

Young Explorer is beautifully illustrated throughout, with each animal presented separately and

shown in its natural habitat. It is packed with fascinating facts: where the animals live, what they eat, how big they are, what their tracks look like, and when they are active. Calls and videos of animals in the wild provide extra entertainment for curious young minds.

Challenging, age-appropriate games are thrown into the mix, adding extra fun and pleasure to the

learning experience.

There are four languages in the app – English, isiXhosa, isiZulu and Afrikaans. Kids can read

descriptions, listen to narrations and play games in any of these languages, and easily switch between them within the app.

Sasol Young Explorer – Frogs is the second app in the new Young Explorer nature series for kids. Colourful, informative and stimulating, Frogs introduces young children (3–8 years old) to 55 of the most common and rare frog species found in southern Africa. The descriptions of the animals – in English, isiXhosa, isiZulu and Afrikaans – are written in easy and accessible language and narrated by professional voice-over artists. There are also calls for all the frogs, except one – the only voiceless species in the region – while videos for 29 species show these delightful creatures in their natural habitat. ‘Quick facts’ about the size, egg type, location and conservation status of each species are revealed by toggling between illustrations of the different features on the screen. The app includes a play section with four games: puzzles, memory card games, an animal naming game and a nature cleanup game. There are lots of opportunities to tap, toggle, touch and swipe, listen, watch, and learn. Perfect for pre-readers and young learners, the app will keep kids engaged and help them learn about the fascinating creatures that we share our world with.
