New Hanover Prep’s Owls

NHP News – Owls.

Owls are very special to us at NHP. For years a pair of Spotted Eagle Owls have made the trees around NHP their home, and in fact shortly after we opened the Indoor Centre earlier this year, we found a baby Barn Owl that had settled in there.


Recently the pair of Eagle Owls nested in the main Natal Mahogany tree at the centre of the school. There was much excitement when the two owlets hatched a few weeks ago and they have grown considerably since. The children love spotting the owls around the school and watching them gain strength and learn to fly.
