Club P.A.N. February 2008 update

Club P.A.N. has now been up and running since October 2007, each of the classes participating in club P.A.N. have been guided through one nature lesson per week so far and everything has been running even better than expected!

In February, Club P.A.N. held a “journée pedagogique”, a day for the various teachers, assistants and students of club P.A.N. to come together and exchange their ideas and experiences on the lessons and activities. Below are some of the videos and photos from the day and from the lessons that have taken place so far.

The exchange was fruitful and a huge success, many important dignitaries from the Taï region and beyond were present to show their support for club P.A.N. Some of the classes have even come up with club P.A.N. songs composed by the school groups themselves. We hope to pick the best song at the end of the year as our club P.A.N. theme!

The Conservation Group would like to thank the organizers of Club P.A.N operating in Ivory Coast (click on all images to enlarge):

as well as the many suporters of club P.A.N.:

Club P.A.N. would not be possible without the help of the directors of the participating schools:

and the teachers that give the lessons (a few of whom are shown below):
