AfriOcean Warriors, invading our school
The AfriOcean Warriors aren't your typical fight, fight, kill, kill soldiers - in fact they're just the opposite. The AfriOcean Warriors is an educational program that runs in schools everywhere. It has been sponsored by the Lotto for three years.
There are different 'tribes' that gather together once a week to learn about the ocean and the land around it. Occasionally the tribes gather on the beach or the mountain for 'Survivor Challenges' where the different tribes compete against each other.
Our grade fours to sevens gathered in the hall to listen to the AfriOcean Warriors plans to start a tribe in our school. There were a lot of excited and interested kids once the speech was over and no doubt next Friday at the first meeting there will be a whole lot of new AfriOcean Warriors ready to start helping their planet, oceans, mountains and all.
