Project School Visit:
Fairfield Elementary School (Amherstview)

Visit sponsored by: TD Friends of the Environment Foundation

In October 2001, we visited Fairfield Public School in Amherstview for a second time, this time with our female peregrine falcon "Penny".  Below is a letter from the principal:

I am writing to extend my thanks, on behalf of the grade four and six students and their teachers who attended your presentation by your staff. It was a very informative session that gave the students plenty of opportunity to participate.  Certainly, the students were appreciative of their very close encounter with such a beautiful specimen.  They learned a great deal and became more aware of how fragile nature's balance can be and how easily it can be effected.

May I extend my personal appreciation to David Pfeffer for his thoughtfulness to include Fairfield Elementary School during his Kingston tour.

Sincerely,

Wm. M. Lee
Principal

Visit sponsored by:  the Davies Charitable Trust

In February 2001, we visited Fairfield Public School in Amherstview with our two-year-old male peregrine falcon "Scotty".  Below are some comments from the school:

On behalf of the students at Fairfield Elementary School, I would like to sincerely express our appreciation for the exceptional presentation made by the Canadian Peregrine Foundation.  Our students in the Junior Division were thrilled to see Scotty the falcon and learn ways to protect our endangered species and their habitats.  Teachers were able to use the detailed curriculum material distributed for introductory and follow-up lessons since it meshed so well with the Ministry curriculum expectations.

We appreciate the commitment of the Davies Charitable Trust which has enabled our school to participate and look forward to the possibility that we will be able to have a similar visit next year.

Sincerely,

Suzanne E. Faulkner
Principal
