It’s finally spring in Vancouver! Look at these busy bees
Enjoying the outdoor sunshine at the school playground!
This week the 3s class took a trip to visit Teacher Alexandra’s house. They enjoyed riding the bus and running through the field on the way there. Once they got there, the class explored the house and ate snack in the back yard. The day finished with a play in the playground across the street.
We had two special visitors come to preschool today, both permanent residents from O.W.L., the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society in Delta.
First we met “Snoopy”, a Saw-Whet Owl who was found injured in a parking lot in Richmond in 2007 and is unable to be released to the wild due to head trauma that he received. What a cutie. The children got the chance to ask many questions about Snoopy and made their own observations, for example, that someone should really come up with a helmet for owls.
The second guest we met was “Katie”, an American Kestrel that has lived at O.W.L since 2009. She is very comfortable with people, so was most likely a pet before she came to O.W.L. She loves being a part of the Education Programme and shows off by puffing up her feathers. We all got a special treat when Katie decided to spread her wings and fly around a bit, showing us why it’s important she always has a leash on.
