It’s a new year and the KZN branches were planning and preparing for open day and prize giving. Indeed all of the hard work paid off and was a success. The branches then decided to surprise the learners with a trip to uShaka Marine World. The trip not for all but for the learners awarded and deserving as it was a way to show each learner that their hard work and dedication to committing themselves to their work is recognised, so IkamvaYouth decided to take all winners on a trip to uShaka Marie World. Here the Umlazi Branch met up with the awarded learners from the Chesterville Branch together they took a journey into the sea world learning so much about the different types of creatures that live in the ocean.


 All learners were so eager and asked a lot of questions and couldn’t stop taking photos of such beautiful creatures. The fun did not end there they got an opportunity to also see the Dolphins at Sea World Stadium as they were putting on a magnificent show for them. There was a lot of singing, dancing and cheering as the wonderful staff from the Sea World kept everyone entertained.  It was a long beautiful day for the learners but it was not just all about fun and games, they also learnt a lot especially about how to take of such creatures as well as what career opportunities there are in taking care of such creatures. Some learners even spoke about going back to uShaka Marine World for another awesome experience.
