After our first visit to Glenpark Primary School, we decided we wanted to get involved and help them with their goals for the school and students.
Glenpark Primary School is situated approximately 3km from Emdoneni Lodge
with Cheetah Project and teaches 450 children from Grades 0-7. The headmaster, Sipho, is such a great person, with a big heart and big dreams for the school.
Another side of this project is educating the children about the Cats in our rehabilitation project, which commenced with a visit by kids and staff to Emdoneni Lodge with Cheetah Project. None of them had seen wild cats before and it was a special moment for the school staff and all of us at Emdoneni Lodge with Cheetah Project to witness their interaction with the Cats.
