St Charles College outreach trip

On Friday, June 4, St Charles College boys went with Mrs Joubert on an outreach excursion to the African Raptor Centre to help serve our community. On arrival the boys were given a quick tour of the centre and were shown a variety of birds to marvel at. These are all birds that had been rescued. Their knowledge was expanded, particularly on the most endangered bird at the centre, the bearded vulture.

The boys were all eager to help to be part of building a new enclosure for these birds so that more could be saved. There were many jobs to be done and the boys set to the task with vigour. A sense of camaraderie was felt between the boys as they struggled together to overcome some of the larger obstacles of preparing and building a new enclosure. The visit was beneficial to both the boys and the community and was thoroughly enjoyed by both. – (text by Joel Archibald, Grade 8)
