Kwa-Zulu Natal Happy Earth Festival

22 May,2015Fire Awareness

KwaZulu-Natal Working on Fire participated in the Annual Happy Earth Festival at the National Botanical Gardens. This event attracts more that 1000 scholars in and around Pietermaritzburg.

The two day long festivals’ core objective is to connect kids to nature. The event shares handson experiential activities that help educate learners and educators about environmental issues and ways we can address them. The WoF Albert Falls Team assisted on the day as team leaders to the different groups of schools that came to the event.

Khulani Zulu, the Provincial Fire Awareness Training Officer, explained that the festival is a good platform to interact with teachers and arrange other appointments to visit other children in their schools. “I was very happy with the outcome of the festival. We did more activities than last year and we’ll only get better and better with time,” said Khulani

“Some schools didn’t want to leave our stand. I had a great team with me and we had informative, exciting and fun activities for all ages,” he quipped.
