Form 2 Trip to the Zoo

Our 2nd year students enjoyed a wonderful day out at the Zoo last week as part of their CBA project. Students took part in workshops where they learned about sustainability, environment, conservation, and in particular how deforestation affects orangutans. They really enjoyed this interactive and informative day of learning.
