Winners Education Language School, Athens, Greece


Winners Education is a language school with an international profile. We strongly believe that language learning needs to be an experience that will boost natural curiosity, encourage critical thinking and develop global collaboration and awareness. Great international projects like the Travelling Rhino project are an excellent addition to our curriculum and greatly contribute to Winners Education's learning aims.

Winners Education welcomes Zindzi, the African rhino!

Zindzi came from far away and travels round the planet in order for people to become aware of the plight her species is facing: Only 5 species of rhino are left in the world with some of the critically endangered (about 40 animals are left of the Javan species!). Poaching kills hundreds every year, 309 so far in Kruger National Park alone! We NEED to ACT NOW!
For 2 weeks Zindzi was with us at Winners Education in Greece and we hope she felt at home! Zindzi, the gentle Rhino became part of our lives and the students fought for its survival.

During these 2 weeks questionnaires were sent to public schools , presentations to other students and parents were made, protests at the neighbourhood have been organised...all because our students loved Zindzi with all their heart and were commited to inform their classmates, their parents and family and the entire area for Zindzi's plight.
Zindzi has now set saill for her next destination in Spain! We will miss her but we hope we've been appropriately hospitable, helping raise awareness on the rhino dire situation within the local community!
