The students in Year 4 presented a cheque to a representative from EAST last week.
This event marked the culmination of their Community Service project about endangered species. They worked closely with the Endangered Asian Species Trust (EAST) to learn about endangered primate species in Vietnam, the reasons why they are endangered, and the ways that rescue centres like EAST can help.
The students conducted research to find out more, and they held a bake sale to raise money for the EAST projects. They raised 16,000,000VND to fund the lori enclosure at EAST! Claire came to An Phu Primary to meet the Year 4 students and to accept the cheque on behalf of EAST. She shared some information about the lori enclosure and how EAST will use this money to build more suitable facilities for the primates. She sent a picture of a special lori named Louise, who will live in the new enclosure.
