Cordwalles Preparatory School’s May News
Cordwalles Prep Boys making a difference
Two years ago when the Cordwalles Preparatory School boys campaigned to save the Imfolozi Game Reserve from the coal mine that was going to be built close by, the Cheetah Project came about and the boys raised funds to help buy a collar for a cheetah. Since the introduction of the radio-active collars, it has revealed that instead of 30 cheetah thought to be inhabiting the area, there are in fact only 8!
Two years later the cheetah project continues and the boys at Cordwalles are now motivated to buy a cheetah from Botswana, to be relocated to the Imfolozi Game Reserve.
A small group of Grade 5 boys spearheaded by Luke Spiers decided to put recycling into action at the recent Hilton College vs Michaelhouse Derby. At the event they saw a massive opportunity of turning the spectators’ trash into treasure, and help with the litter clear-up, and collected bottles, cans and plastics.
It is this passion of the younger generation to make a difference in their world that gives one hope for the future!
