HILLCREST Primary Grade 4 pupil, Shivh Bedesi (9), won the Boomerang Mini Zoo competition for his school.

The competition started off earlier this year with Boomerang Africa, and partnered with mobile zoos to bring a unique, interactive and fun animal learning experience to schools.

Pupils could enter the Boomerang’s Mini Zoo competition and the winning school would get a visit from Boomerang and the channels greatest ambassador, Scooby Doo.

The winning school will also be given the opportunity to nominate a less-fortunate school in their area to receive a visit from the Boomerang Mini Zoo, sharing in the fun and excitement while learning about the wonders of the Boomerang friends.

Bedesi nominated Gillitts Primary School to receive a Boomerang Mini Zoo experience as well.

Pierre Branco, Turner Africa’s vice president and general manager of Southern Europe and Africa said in a statement he loves this project. 

“We really love this initiative. Here at Boomerang we believe in educating our audience in a unique, fun and interactive way, through exciting kids-centric, educational content.

“We believe that children have a special kind of love for animals and get really excited when they play and interact with them,” read Branco’s statement.

Lynn Gever, Shivh’s teacher, said the staff are proud of his achievement.  
“Our Grade 4 pupils are looking forward to the visit by the Boomerang Zoo. A zoo keeper will educate pupils about the animals represented by the cartoon characters and pupils will touch a few of the animals. Well done, Shivh,” she said.
