“Teachers who are present for the full day will receive a certificate of attendance and an exciting resource pack. Lunch and tea will be provided. The workshop will be looking at ways to enhance local actions aimed at improving the environmental knowledge of primary and high school teachers,” said WESSA senior education officer, Dudu Ntombela.

Teachers will be equipped and empowered with creative ideas on how to link the environment to the curriculum they teach at school using hands-on activities as well as information on low cost ideas that they can implement in the classroom.

Motivational letters must be faxed no later than Tuesday, 2 May to 031-467-8288 or emailed to [email protected] For more information, call Dudu Ntombela on 031-467-8507 or 073- 891-0147.
