Camps Bay Primary School embarks on alien vegetation hack
14 November 2019
Under the guidance of nature conservation students from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), Grade 7 learners from Camps Bay Primary School went on a mission to rid the sides of the school’s sports field of invasive alien vegetation.
The CPUT students, Daniel Jones, an alumni of Camps Bay Schools, and Darren Nyland, did a short presentation to the Grade 7s showing them the differences between indigenous and alien vegetation and the reasons why the invasive species need to be removed. One of the reasons is that the alien vegetation suck up nearly a third of South Africa’s water supply!
The learners tackled the task with great gusto and thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on experience.
Well done to Camps Bay for taking care of the environment by clearing the alien vegetation and helping to conserve our water resources for future generations.
