SRC Visit the Gorge Wildlife Park
Our dedicated SRC representatives and our diligent school captains went on a meaningful excursion to the Gorge Wildlife Park last Thursday (8th of June). This was not only an opportunity to deliver the generous donations raised during our recent Animal Dress Up Day but also a chance for our students to gain valuable insights into the importance of environmental conservation and animal care.
During their time at the Gorge Wildlife Park, our SRC representatives and school captains were immersed in a world of wonder and education. The staff in the wildlife park warmly welcomed our students, providing them with an educational tour, and imparting their expert knowledge on wildlife preservation.
Our young leaders had the privilege of interacting with a diverse range of animal species, observing their behaviours, and learning about their unique habitats. The students were amazed by the incredible diversity of wildlife within the wildlife park and were particularly fascinated by its efforts to protect and preserve endangered species.
The experience proved to be both enlightening and thought-provoking. Our students gained a deep understanding of the impact human activities can have on the environment and the importance of adopting sustainable practices. They discovered how our actions, both big and small, can contribute to the well-being of animals and the preservation of their natural habitats.
Our SRC representatives and school captains had the opportunity to present the donations collected from our Animal Dress Up Day. The contributions from our compassionate students will directly support Rainforest Rescue and Gorge Wildlife Park’s conservation efforts, aiding in the care and welfare of the animals in the wild. It was heartwarming to witness the pride and joy our students felt as they handed over the funds, knowing they were making a positive difference.
This excursion has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the minds and hearts of our young leaders. We believe that experiences like these are essential in nurturing a sense of responsibility and empathy in our students, shaping them into compassionate and environmentally conscious individuals.
As a school community, we are incredibly proud of our students' commitment to making a difference. Together, we can continue to instill in them a passion for environmental stewardship and the value of caring for our fellow creatures.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and let us continue to inspire our young leaders to become advocates for the environment and guardians of our precious wildlife. Well done, Prescott family!
