The second term of the South African school year is drawing to a close, and the winter holidays are looming. While this past week saw some of the first real storms of winter, the weather cleared up beautifully just in time to celebrate the winter solstice with some sunny (but extremely chilly!) days. It seems like an appropriate time to have a look back over the last 6 months and remember some of the wonderful school visits we have had here at the Save our Seas Foundation Shark Education Centre in Kalk Bay.
