Cosmo Kids is a community project helping to raise awareness about wetlands and biodiversity in general. Every Saturday approx 30 children between the ages of 5 and 18, meet on Fenella drive for a couple of hours. Each week a different inhabitant of Monavale is studied. Every child has their own Kids Club book which he or she brings to class. Emphasis of course is on wetlands and the environment with regular quizzes and crosswords on these topics. Each lesson is concluded with biscuits and juice followed by fun and games as diverse as frisbee throwing competitions, team building exercises, scavenger hunts and obstacle courses or cricket and soccer matches.
We try and take the kids on a field trip each term, dependant on transport availability. To date we have visited Mukuvisi Woodlands, Imire, Twala, Wild is Life and many more.
