ETHEKWINI Municipality celebrated International Museum Day by launching the Go-Wild Mobile Museum at Tholulwazi High in Molweni recently.

The museum has various museum specimens­ and resources such as books and DVDs.

Councillor S. M. Mchunu of Ward 9 says: “We are happy that the Go Wild Mobile Museum is available for pupils in the semi-rural areas like Molweni. It will be good for them to see and engage with the exhibits and learn about the animals.

“We are keen to know and understand what is in a museum, but it is sometimes difficult and expensive for the schools to send pupils to the city to the Natural Science Museum, so we are very happy that the mobile museum can come to us. “It is great that the city is investing in the education of our young people.”

Principal of Tholulwazi Secondary School, Thamsanqa Chaula, says: “This is the first of its kind. We in Molweni are privileged and fortunate to be chosen from so many schools to be visited by the mobile museum. We encourage our pupils not to live for now and destroy everything, but to preserve our heritage for future generations. “We want our grandchildren to know what our animals look like. “The Go Wild Mobile Museum will help inform and educate our pupils and will help with teaching theory and inspiring career choices in the sciences.”
