A few days ago, we had snake experts come in from good folks over at Foliage Outdoors. They spoke to the students of Std 3, 4 and 5. They came with a lot of photos and videos. They taught the children how to identify snakes and how to distinguish between poisonous and non-poisonous varieties. They also talked about the life cycle and behaviour of snakes and their importance in the ecosystem. It was an awesome session. It drew out many oooohs, aaaahs and disgusted ewwws from the children especially when they were told about the brutality being done to snakes. A lot of misconceptions about snakes got cleared and the children now have a much better perspective on nature.

Here are a few pictures.

What a week it was! Looking back we can safely say that it was ‘Family Fun’ for Team Walnut – the students, the staff and the parents too!
