Friends of Loskop is beginning an initiative between the Loskop Dam Nature Reserve and the Friends of Loskop support group, to encourage school children to visit our area. The intention is to hold a competition where children as well as the entire school, can win prizes.
There are five different categories:
Age Groups /Criteria
- Gr r – Gr 2 - Colour in
- Gr 3 – Gr 4 – Drawing (something seen on the day.)
- Gr 5 – Gr 6 - Test on knowledge of loskop dam nature reserve, animals, trees, reptiles, birds. one sentence on how they can make a difference.
- Gr 7 – Gr 9 - Same as above but more advance including a poem on how they can make a difference
- Gr 10 – Gr 12 - Same as above including an essay on how an individual can make a difference in our environment and how it can contribute to the bigger picture.
Our theme is:
Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little. (e burke 1729 – 1797)
Friends of Loskop wants to make sure the children understand that they can make a difference even if it is small.
Loskop Dam Nature Reserve is a unique fauna and flora area and is in a vulnerable state and it needs the support of everyone who is aware of the environmental issues within our country. We would like to see the learners who are the leaders of tomorrow become more environmentally aware and better ambassadors for South Africa.
Time frame: Feb – Oct 2012 (competition ends on 31 October 2012)
Program time: four hours
Learners per day: 60 or less.
Yours in conservation
