On December 14, 1999, we visited the students at Kitchener's John Darling School with our 9-year-old peregrine falcon, Qetesh. Here is some of the feedback we received from them, and a letter from the principal below:
|Dear Mr. Green and Marcel,
John Darling School appreciated your visit this past Tuesday. We loved the movie and like meeting Kateche. Good thing you put out the newspaper for Kateche. We hope we can experience another visit from you next year, and we'll all make sure to keep a lookout for those peregrine falcons.
From Mr. Doyle's and Mrs. Kellermen's classes
(note: it appears that we forgot to tell these classes how we spell Qetesh's name, so the students took the phonetic route...)
The traveling road show, sponsored by Friends of the Environment, Canada Trust, with Bill Green and his peregrine falcon came to our school on Tuesday December 14, 1999. His interactive presentation was given to over 150 students in grades 4 and 5.
The students and staff were very impressed by the presentation given by Bill. Below are some comments by Mrs. Anne Bishop-Payne, who helped co-ordinate this presentation:
excellent to have a presentation about a local environmental concern and for the students to actually see a live falcon - students really identified with the issue of extinction of such a beautiful bird and how this species is making a comeback
the live falcon certainly made a lasting impression on all of us
Bill's presentation was very good - the use of multimedia, his sense of humour, his voice, and pace of the presentation were very good and well-received by the audience
appreciated the handout (Student's Guide) about the Peregrine Falcon
he asked many quality questions that required the students to think
Anne was so impressed with this presentation that she spoke to Bill about being a presenter at our annual Earthfest, an environmental fair for students from different schools in our county. This day long event takes place in the spring on a Saturday and usually attracts over 200 students, parents, and educators who are genuinely interested in issues about our environment.
Your sincerely, D. Lane, Principal
