Under the guidance of nature conservation students from CPUT, Daniel Jones (past pupil of Camps Bay Schools) and Darren Nyland, Grade 7’s from Camps Bay Primary School went on a mission to rid the sides of the Primary School’s Sports Field of invasive alien vegetation.

Daniel and Darren 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 reason being, that they suck up nearly a third of South Africa’s water supply!

The pupils tackled the task with great gusto and thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on experience.
