Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the Council -
1) notes and congratulates the Northern Cape province for having been judged the top-performing province as far as the eco-schools environmental programme is concerned;
2) further notes that the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa, which administers the international programme in South Africa, presented the Northern Cape MEC for environment and nature conservation, Mrs Sylvia Lucas, with a special certificate in Kimberley;
3) appreciates the excellent work done by everyone involved while mindful that the system must be expanded to more schools as it is the school environment that develops responsible citizens; and
4) pays tribute to the environmental officers and teachers for the time they put into making the programme a success.
Motion agreed to in accordance with section 65 of the Constitution.
