The Change Agents peer educators went camping on Friday, 14 June to Sunday, 16 June to Camp Noah in Richmond.
The team consisted of teachers, Tennyson House Project Director, Change Agents Coordinator and Facilitator and 44 pupils from various Durban high schools. They shared and discussed challenges that they are facing in their respective schools, some of the challenges that were discussed included school violence, teenage pregnancy and drug abuse.
Change Agents Facilitator, Skhumbuzo Khoza said the camp also covered peer education lesson delivery training. “The pupils where given training on how they can present and deliver lessons to their peers. We also looked at common issues that are taking place in various high schools and shared ideas on how best these issues can be tackled”, said Khoza.
All participants felt that the camp had benefitted them and were eager to try out some of the ideas that were shared.
