Miss Earth shows Soweto pupils the importance of nature!

Gettin’ muddy. Pupils at Lulama Primary planting seeds with Miss Earth at their school in Soweto.

Pupils, Siyabonga Skhosana and Yamkela Mzamo did their bit as they lay on plants, during the event.

Ably assisted by a complement of other stakeholders such as Pikitup, South African National Biodiversity Institute, the attendees didn’t waste time in folding sleeves and knuckling down to the dirty work of painting the football field’s goalposts, filling a sizeable trench with compost, planting trees alongside the yard’s perimeter, decorating recycleable cans amongst tasks performed by even splits of the contestants and students.

At another project dubbed: waste stops with me, a group of girls and boys were busy working with recyclable tins, decorating them into bee forms whilst inscribing educational messages onto their colourful labels under the tutelage of Miss Earth Zambia ambassador, Katrina Ketty Kabaso and lanky blonde, Annie Kirsten who were reminding the pupils of the value of: ‘’make something out of nothing’’.

Livewire Constantinides, who had those present enthralled no end through her trademark wont of mixing her speech with English, Zulu and Sotho, urged the girls to respect boys and boys to respect girls likewise.
