Shark Dreams Play reaches 1000 learners

26th October 2009

Save Our Seas Shark Centre and Jungle Theatre took the “Shark Dreams” play to 1000 Primary School children in Cape Town.  We traveled to Turfhall Primary in Hanover Park and Klipfontein Primary in Bonteheuwel this past week.

The play based on the book Sue finds Happy Eddie, was written by Lesley Rochat and tells the story of Thandi, a young Capetonian who dreamed of becoming a surfer and riding the waves at Muizenberg, on the False Bay coast. In her dreams, she meets up with the sea spirit who takes her on a journey to meet the different sharks in the sea. She searches for a shy shark, Happy Eddy, who has gone missing from the Save our Seas Shark Centre. The play also highlights the threats to sharks, how to be ‘Shark Wise’ and the role of the Shark Spotters in ensuring safety when swimming at our beaches.

We thank our generous benefactor for enabling us to reach these children.
