10 May Grade 2 Conservation Day
The Grade 2s recently had their Conservation Day which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The day started off with a demonstration from Andreas Liebenberg who illustrated how tracks work and how anti-poachers use tracking to find poachers. Megan Carlisle did a presentation, recapping on what they had learnt in their Lessons in Conservation throughout Term 1. She was joined by founder and CEO of Lessons in Conservation, Dean Carlisle. The Grade 2s loved hearing his stories from his time in the bush. Lastly, Les Carlisle spoke about a project he is heavily involved in – Rhinos Without Borders – which captivated the children. He showed them how the rhinos are transported and why there is a need for this.
The Grade 2s then journeyed to our dam for a picnic. They were able to spot birds and butterflies on the way and enjoy our beautiful campus. It was a fantastic day filled with gratitude for the incredible world we live in. This day would not have been possible without our wonderful Grade 2 teachers, Laura Squires and Samantha Arntzen.
