Dibanisa Update

Posted under Eco-Tourism Blog by Grootbos on 8th March 2011

The theme for the Dibanisa Art lesson on Friday 4 March was: RECYCLE, REUSE and REDUCE. Art teacher Carla Gouws presented an art lesson on the environment and creating art from recycled and reusable goods. The children learnt more about how to REDUCE: 1) to limit waste by purchasing items one can use more than once, 2) by making your own products, 3) by choosing goods that have minimal packaging. REUSE: to take an old or used product and find a new way to use it. RECYCLE: to collect unwanted materials and process those to make new materials that can be reused. The children collected bottles, plastic, newspapers, shells and other goods to create their own photo frames, jewellery and mobiles – the results were amazing! In one art lesson the children got to learn about the environment and recycling, explore their creativity, and learn a new skill with which they can generate an income. 

To conclude we wrapped up with a game of soccer – what a way to start the weekend!
