“Learners don’t always know about the importance of trees. They climb into the branches and break them to take out bird’s nests. Now, thanks to this creative and interactive message, from these funny actors they know that the trees give us energy … amongst other things.” Mrs Z de Bruin, Dirk Boshoff Primary – 82 learners
“The learners loved it. Especially the song which they learned about trees giving us oxygen and shelter which will help them remember the message.” A Andries, Dirk Boshoff Primary – 436 learners.
“The learners enjoyed learning how to plant and take care of a tree and plants. Lunchbox is always welcome at our school and are helping us with an important job.” N Kalipi, Phakamisani Primary – 190 learners
