Kingdom Kidz meet gentle giants

The field trip was part of the theme for this school term namely wild animals following a trip of the grade RR class to Chimp Eden the previous week.

“We were so blessed to have the opportunity to not only teach our children in the classroom but also in the wild,” said Kingdom Kidz headmaster Marietjie Meyer.

At the sanctuary the children learned about the importance of conservation, how to take care of an elephant and what the real strength of this animal is.

“They also had the opportunity to interact with the elephants and feed them. The children enjoyed it abundantly,” Meyer said.


The kids were taken to the sanctuary with the help of Citybug and received shirts from Noctuam that they decorated themselves the Wednesday prior to the visit. They were given a template of an elephant and then had to expand their creative skills by bringing it to life.
