Report on Active English Class 2015

The Active English Class is an annual program run by Kazumi Watanabe, chairperson of the Mammy z Tummy Project in Fukushima, and film director Hitomi Kamanaka. The main portion of the program is a summer camp for children whose lives have been badly affected by the disasters of 2011, some of them with ongoing health complications. While enjoying fresh air, healthy food and the great outdoors, the children also have the opportunity to improve their English skills and experience a range of activities they are unable to take part in at home.

This year’s Active English camp took place for 9 nights and 10 days in 2 different remote locations in Miyazaki and Ōita prefectures. A total of 8 students (5 boys and 3 girls) came from Fukushima city, ranging in age from 11 to 15, and one of EOF’s staff members went along as their English tutor.

Shark Spotters Cape Town

I had heard about the Shark Spotters before, but never seen them in action. I stopped and met Agnes the Shark Spotter, who kindly let me take some photos and told me a little bit about this unique, successful and world-renowned program.

A bonus for all you shark-lovers out there: This display in Cape Town International Airport caught my eye and I thought I’d share it with you. I’m glad to see that the City of Cape Town is promoting great white sharks to tourists!
