Primary School Programme
Classroom sessions are complemented by field trips at nearby beaches, the Pereybere Beach Resource Center or Nauticaz Marine Discovery Center or glass bottom boat trips in marine protected areas such as the Blue Bay Marine Park or Balaclava Marine Park. Emphasis has been put on hands-on learning and experience as a key component of the primary school programme.
Integrating the concepts in the primary school curriculum
Reef Conservation has been working with the Ministry of Education and Human Resources to integrate marine sciences in the upper-primary school curriculum (Standards III, IV, V and VI), and has submitted an integrated proposal including lesson structures and textbook contents.
Tools and materials to learn about the marine environment
Reef Conservation has been developing a series of hands-on educational tools such as posters, flashcards, CD Roms, dry aquariums and 3D models of the reef.
