THE OZONE CLUB TAKES ON HIP HOP HEALTH

Research on whether there is any E.coli Bacteria in our local water-in Rensburg (Esigodlweni) By Ozone Club-Riverdale Primary School in Escourt 30 August 2016.

"We had a good experience when we were out for a field trip doing our project. All learners participated honestly. Leaners voted for who will fill water in the containers, because they all wanted to fill it. It was really a hands-on project.

When we did this field trip activity, we all learnt to appreciate and respect nature because when we went out of the school to the river, we saw nice flat rocks and a steep valley. Before we could even talk about water, the learners realised that the stream was dirty and needed to be cleaned up. It was our first time to be engaged in such a project. We were so enthusiastic in a way that we wish we could have more projects.

When we reached the river and stream, we firstly washed our hands with soap and water as well as the outside of the containers. We then poured river water into the containers. We placed written stickers on top of the lids for identification purposes. Finally, we took some pictures as a proof of every step we undergone. This was really an exciting project!

When we got to school we filled tap and tank water into different containers still checking for E.coli bacteria"
