Wolmaransstad Team celebrates World Environmental Day with Schools
Working on Fire Wolmaransstad Team in the North West and Tholoana Consulting together with various stakeholders celebrated World Environmental Day at Maranatha Church in Wolmaransstad to raise awareness on environmental issues and its protection.
The main objective of the awareness was to provide a healthy and sustainable environment within the local community.
The Wolmaransstad Team and various School Environmental-Clubs presented and emphasised the importance of the environment through different platforms such as Drama, Singing, Poetry and Traditional dance to the learners and community members.
“The aim of the day was to focus on pre-school learners who will be starting Grade R to ensure the environmental message starts from the foundation phase,” said the Tholoana Consulting Environmental Awareness Campaigner Daniel Kgopane.
The North West Community Fire Awareness Officer, Sophy Dinko explained how unwanted fires affect the environment and called for communities to protect and be responsible for their environment. “Unwanted fires can be deadly, destroying homes, wildlife habitats and polluting the air with emissions such as carbon dioxide which is harmful to humans,” Dinko concluded.
Participants Olebogeng Khumalo and Mojaki from the team also gave a presentation which explained how fire can be a friend and also an enemy.
