uShaka Sea World holiday programme is a hit

The children show off their handcrafted seals, made from socks and felt

 

Children from various schools in and around Durban spent a fun-filled three days of their July holidays at uShaka Sea World learning about the sea. 

Thirty-six children took part in a kids' holiday programme, designed with Grade 2 to 4 learners in mind. The theme for the programme was "Tentacles, teeth and tails", and there was no shortage of marine animals exhibiting these features. 

The children enjoyed learning about animal care; they also dissected a shark and sang songs. However, the most popular and messy activity was undoubtedly the craft work, which involved creating a seal out of an old pair of socks and felt.
