We care about Animals
Design created by Minh Chi 9V and Diep San 8B (Art Club)
During the residential trip they learnt all about primates and how here in Vietnam we have a number of special monkeys on the endangered species list.
In Term 2 – It was a testament to the commitment of our Year 7 students to see them persevere to show how much they care by braving the cold weather to help on the community stall to help raise awareness for EPRC during the Tet Fair.
Last week I was delighted to see how enthused our students were as they took the time out during a number of lunch breaks to sell merchandise for EPRC. All funds raised will go towards building a special new enclosure for rescued Pygmy and Slow Loris so that we can improve the environment in which they are kept to aid recovery and eventual release back into the wild.
After all the fun, learning together and enthusiasm, it was a wonderful moment for our students to present Ms. Sonya with an astounding 10,000,050 VND towards such a good cause. Ms. Sonya was very impressed with everything our students have done and presented the school with a certificate of appreciation on behalf of all the hard work by Year 7.
I am proud to say that it has been a pleasure for me to share this project with our students; they have shown me that they are true global citizens with a fabulous community spirit.
