July 18, 2014– (Belize City, Belize) – Chukka Belize hosted a group of primary school children on their annual field trip as part of their continued community outreach and awareness efforts. Students from the evening division of the St. Martin de Pores School and project HEAL visited the Chukka Jaguar Paw location.
The school sponsors a 4-week summer program each year for children who require additional help and tutoring, in an effort to boost their academic performance and through extracurricular activities motivate them to become high achievers.
“Initiatives such as these are important building blocks and essential for the continued growth of our thriving communities,” stated Country Manager Valerie Woods. “It certainly is a phenomenal effort on behalf of the children of the project HEAL and Chukka Belize is excited to be a part of it.”
The program not only helps to solidify the fundamentals for reading, mathematics and English, it also exposes them to arts, dance (Zumba) and drumming classes, and sports. It also provides opportunities for them to experience a Belize outside of their norm through field trips to different parts of the country.
Chukka is proud to host the first of two scheduled field trips for the group this summer. The group, ranging in age from 10 to 13 years old, experienced the Jaguar Paw adrenalin pumping zipline canopy tour.
