DESPITE all the challenges Bayworld has been experiencing in past years, they still manage to offer an educational exeperience of note for schools in the Bay.

According to Port Elizabeth Museum School principal Nicky Daniels, they have programmes aligned with the school curriculum. These programmes are offered to schools in the metro and surrounding areas.

The Port Elizabeth Museum School is registered with the Department of Education and focuses on pupils from Grade R to Grade 7.

They are, however, able to assist Grade 10-12 learners with programmes they ask for in advance.

“We publish our programmes with specific themes in October of the previous year and by the beginning of the year we start offering those programmes.

“We facilitate about 110 000 to 120 000 learners per year in learning areas such as Arts and Culture, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Life Orientation,” said Daniels.

“We also have an inclusive programme where learners with disability, learning challenges and language barriers are catered for,” said Daniels.

They also conduct outreach programmes to learners from the rural areas outside of Nelson Mandela Bay.

Learners from Walmer Primary School and Emfundweni Primary Schools in Zwide, visited Bayworld last week for an educational excursion.

Walmer Primary School teacher Thandeka Melento, who brought 167 pupils to Bayworld, said it’s important that their Foundation Phase pupils learn about animals. “Today, for example, they learnt about tortoises,” she said.

“They must also learn to love and appreciate animals and not to kill or torture them,” another teacher Nombuyiselo Mhlana said.

The Port Elizabeth Museum School is open every day of the school term.
