Earl Cloete from Spur and ex scholar at Marine Primary was very excited about the positive environmental initiatives at his old school. We interacted with the kids and planted not just trees but a message that “it doesn’t matter where you come from, but what matters is who you choose to be and what we leave behind for future generations.”
Kevin James from GCX Africa was a guest speaker on Friday and complimented the principal on how the school has maintained momentum with their environmental initiatives. The Principal, Mr. Lawrence said this project ties in with the school’s theme of respect of our environment, which was introduced earlier this year.
A special thanks to our sponsors who sponsored a total of 34 trees: Just Trees, GCX Africa, Spur Corporate, Alive2Green, Incite Sustainability, Cape Villa Collection, Coza Productions, Cathy Ririe, Carmen Lorraine Photography, Pieter and Joey van Niekerk and Free Range Café. Thanks to Nthabiseng and Sandra from GCX Africa who assisted the Creating Change Team in organising the event.
