One of the dominant themes we learn about in the “Monday Classes” is caring for the animals in both the oceans and on land. As a culmination of our learning, PCI took the children on their very first excursion to Gembira Loka Zoo, in January 2012, with the support of Pandu Indonesian Language Course. These Australian students visited “Kricak” and built a relationship with the children before taking them to the zoo. The children’s English skills really flourished by being able to associate new words with this first-hand experience. Furthermore, as PCI believes in the importance of children learning compassion towards all animals, PCI maintains a partnership with Diving OCEA, an organisation dedicated to marine conservation and teaching the younger generation about how they can contribute.
