Learners from Nal’ikamva Primary School in Mfuleni, Blue Downs, Cape Town were in for a special treat on a field trip to the Butterfly World Tropical Garden in Stellenbosch on Tuesday this week, 12 April 2016. Peninsula Beverages (PenBev – local bottler and distributor of The Coca-Cola Company products in the Western and Northern Cape) sponsored the educational trip for the grade 7 children who spent the day viewing butterflies, birds and tarantulas from all over the world.
It was a sunny and enjoyable day out of the classroom and there were smiles all round as the children and teachers explored the park with delight. Some of the youngsters hurried quickly past the snake cages and other reptiles on display. They also learnt about insects, arachnids and vertebrates and respect for nature. The children received a delicious lunch of hamburgers and refreshments before returning back to school by bus.
“It is wonderful to create moments of optimism and happiness in the communities where we work. This trip is a valuable learning opportunity for children to get a new perspective on what they are taught in class,” says Denise Behrens, PenBev Corporate Communication Manager.
