whatsUp! Newsletters

While maintaining its emphasis on high scholastic standards Waterberg Academy Head, Vernon Rorich, recognizing the importance and relevance of environmental education has developed an advanced curriculum incorporating conservation and is currently
implementing this programme.

In spite of the lockdown, things are still happening in the
Waterberg and people are finding different ways of doing
things, many working from home. In case you missed our special mailing here is a chance to see babooner Reilly Mooney’s video presentation of the fabulous work she and Melia Markham did with the Swebeswebe baboon troop.

Tourism is the life blood of the Waterberg! No tourists, no lodges, no hunting, no activities, no money, no goods or services, no employment! We cannot allow tourism to become a Corona-victim!
Shouldn’t we rather look at this as an opportunity to do the housekeeping, maintenance and refurbishments we’ve been putting on hold?

A New Year so I thought we’d kick off with a fresh look, and open our first whatsUp! of 2020 with the report on the AGM, our last meeting of 2019. Reports by the seretary and chair showed the WNC in a healthy position with further plans to expand the ‘Teaching the Teachers’ programme.
