Tribe in Education? What could be better?

There are plans currently under way for schools to start studying the Tribe. Imagine that?! What could be better than to study your favourite show at school and learn more about the real life issues the characters have to go through as they try to survive in a world without adults.

Initial planning and research is being conducted in the New Zealand market and it is envisaged that there should be learning kits/packages available for the school year 2002.

Teachers…keep watching for updates on how you can get hold of these study guides for your school class.

Tribeworld UBB/Chatroom – What more can we say?

We must reiterate how important it is not to give out personal information to other users on the UBB and Tribe chat room. This is a very worrying matter indeed as it has come to our attention that some of you fans too quickly and easy give out real names, addresses and phone numbers to people you don’t even know. This can have serious consequences and it is for your own personal safety that we remind you NOT TO DO THIS!!

Future cast chats – we will continue to have cast chats on the Tribe UBB and the new chat room and will advise where the chats will take place when we have the next cast appearance!

There is an archive forum for the Cast Interviews to give you an opportunity to save previous cast chat sessions. However this is only temporary so if you want a record of them, SAVE NOW!!
