While COVID-19 meant a trip to the zoo was not possible, we decided to bring the zoo to us! Before the Christmas break, the school welcomed Melanie from Reptile Haven, who gave a fascinating talk to our TY students about a variety of different species of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. She educated our students on how to care for these incredible creatures, their habitat and behaviour. Melanie was such a wonderful guest who was so patient
with the lads and encouraged them to face and overcome their fears! This was an incredibly unique and interactive experience, where the lads got to interact with, feed and hold an array of species such as snakes, lizards, geckos and even hold a 13ft python! A truly unforgettable day!
