SLAM FINAL 29th August 2015
The final of the SLAM project will be held on Saturday 29th August – Veranda Pte aux Biches Hotel
Reef Conservation has partnered with the well known Slam master Stefan Hart de Keating (Stef H2k) to set up a SLAM project on the theme of the marine environment through the support and funding of Veranda Leisure and Hospitality (VLH). The project goal is to provide children and their supervisors a new pedagogical approach through workshops on slam poetry. A final will talk place on the 29th August 2015 at Veranda Pte aux Biches Hotel where the best slammers will compete in front of spectators.
This project is aimed at 20 teenagers aged between 7 to 18 yrs old, who have difficulties learning to read, write and speak in class and in public. But also experiencing discipline problems or adaptation to social life.
It also allows supervisors to discover teaching techniques that have proven successful in the Indian Ocean and elsewhere, both to children not knowing how to read and write properly and to teachers.
It also gives children the opportunity to learn to overcome their shyness, to concentrate, to speak, to intervene at the appropriate time, to think critically, to discover poetry, languages, oral and body expression, teamwork, gain respect, discipline, recognition, while having fun through a well established programme.
The planning of the sessions is as follows:
