The entry points of the programme are primary schools in a 10km zone around the conservancies’ boundaries. 145 primary schools, organized into 25 clusters, neighbouring the two conservancies have been given rhino awareness materials called The Rhino Cards. These are colourful, laminated cards which contain information about rhino conservation and are consistent with the environmental studies syllabus, so that teachers can readily incorporate the material into their routine lessons. Teacher training sessions on rhino conservation are held at each participating school to enhance the ability of the teachers to deliver rhino education and awareness.
In the last term of the year, LRT supports a Rhino Quiz competition in the 25 cluster groups of the target schools. The purpose of this Rhino Quiz is to encourage awareness and support for rhino conservation. As a way of appreciating the target schools, every school that makes an effort to prepare for quiz competition and performs an awareness raising activity like a play or a poem receives an appreciation prize of exercise books. This aims to encourage all schools to make efforts of raising awareness at their schools through using the rhino cards. In addition to appreciation prizes, the top three performing schools in each cluster receive additional text books and individual prizes for their quiz teams.
