At 09:00 hours, Monday August 25th, 2008 young primary school children (aged 5 to 12) gathered at their regular school assembly. But something was different that day.
At 9:10 am sirens were heard throughout the neighbourhood as a police car pulled into the school. Running into the hall the police officer (in full protective riot gear) delivered a CD to the school. Apparently he had been directed to deliver this to the school by some strange other-worldly force.
….there is a very great secret. There is a world that sits alongside yours, a world that is not easily seen. This world is called many names, for now you may call it ‘Awhi’. Entrance to this world comes through a network of portals that have existed all over your planet from ancient times. These portals act as conduits for energies from Awhi world that are critical to keeping your planet green, healthy and peaceful.
Due to the importance of this message school curriculum has been completely dedicated to Awhiworld activities until the end of this semester (and possibly the end of this year).
Portal location mapping, forensic analysis and documentation, treasure hunts, investigation of local cultural and myth, seed growing and backyard gardening, and a variety of other activities have now been set in motion. Amazingly all of these activities fulfil curriculum standards set by the Ministry of Education..they also have the beneficial side affect of regenerating the neighbourhood and catalysing some innovative community development initiatives.
AwhiWorld has emerged.
