Sally-Anne Tilley, the school’s Librarian and eLearning Leader, invited the boys to present to the students after recognising the boys at a local restaurant in July.
The presentation was a great success with a flood of questions about orangutans being posed to the boys at the completion of their talk. The students were really curious about the orangutans behaviour and how keepers around the world are using enrichment activities such as iPads. One student, who was already aware of the impact of palm oil on the orangutans habitat, spoke on how they have started within their family to ensure what they are buying at the supermarket doesn’t include palm oil.
The presentation covered many aspects to the plight of the orangutan such as orangutan facts, its habitat, destruction of the rainforest, palm oil and many other aspects of the boys journey. The boys were asked at the end of their presentation on how the girls could do fund raising and help save the orangutan. Together they came up with ideas such as, mufty day, orange day, crazy hair day and cake stalls.
Everyone was so inspired by their talk and to know that they too can make a difference.
