Local non-profit organisation Apex Learning Levels hosted an educational drama programme for children in Ottery on Wednesday afternoon.

The event at Ottery Civic Centre was aimed at engaging local youth to teach them cooperative skills, says organisation spokesperson Shaun Warner.

“When one looks at the streets of Ottery, you know it’s unsafe for children. Apex programmes not only keep them off the street, but also equip them with life skills and feed them a meal or snack for the day. We have to equip the young with the tools to navigate this life,” he says.

“We had some exciting activities on the day and invited Joce Engelbrecht and her drama troupe to perform for the kids. She has a community drama group. She told a story about how the lion got to walking. It was really fun and interactive as she engaged with the kids.”

Warner says more than 44 children participated in the day’s activities.

“The purpose was dual: To do outreach to other groups and to teach cooperative skills,” he adds.
