On Saturday, September 07, prizes were awarded for the competition organized by Humane Society International. Telopea Park School was well represented as each of the two primary school classes that took part in the competition received a prize!
Organized at the Botanical Garden, the event first consisted of several presenters talking about this subject, such as Tonya Haff, collection manager NCMI, CSIRO, who popularized what genome and species affiliation is, as well as the negative impact of pesticides like DEET on birds (egg shell thinning, which increases embryo death).
The audience also received explanations from the ecologist and wildlife ranger Millie Sutherland Saines about the Mulligans Flat reserve and the reintroduction of endangered species, and after these very enriching interventions, the awards ceremony took place.
In the 2.1 class, Havana, Archie, Max and Heidi were rewarded for their work "Birds on a branch" with their teacher A. PEREZ.
Then, it was in C. Rufflet's class that Lucia, Bennett, Zoe, Jack and Indi were awarded a prize for their painting "Waratah Dorrigo".
Mrs. Blain also came to attend the ceremony.
The students' works are visible in the very heart of the Botanical garden where they have been printed and exhibited.
Congratulations again to the students for their participation and work!
