An educational collaboration with christel house supported by avi

The Two Oceans Aquarium Foundation's collaboration with Christel House started in 2020, in response to the national lockdown, as online sessions of our Junior Biologist and Smart Living courses for their Grade 5 and 6 learners. This shift to online teaching was made possible thanks to sponsorship from AVI.

In 2021, the Foundation expanded its offering to Christel House, by including taking mobile puppet shows to the Grade 1 to 3 learners, as well as offering our Marine Science Explorer courses to Grade 8 and 9s. This year we were able to continue this partnership, all thanks to AVI.
