Project School Visit:
St. Anne's Catholic School (Cornwall)

Visit sponsored by:  TD Friends of the Environment Foundation

In April 2002 we visited St. Anne's Catholic School in Cornwall with our female peregrine falcon "Qetesh".  Below is a letter from the school:

On Friday, April 12, 2002, we had the pleasure of welcoming David Pfeffer from the Canadian Peregrine Foundation and his falcon.  Our students were given information and statistics concerning the problems experienced by endangered species in their struggle for survival here in Ontario.  They were also given the opportunity to meet a live bird of prey and hear this particular falcon's story.  They saw and heard fascinating facts to do with falcons and other birds of prey.  Students and staff were made aware of the reality of extinction for many of our birds and wildlife in general in today's world.  The presentation was both informative and entertaining.  It
certainly brought the Science Curriculum to life for our students.  It was absolutely great for the students to be able to view a peregrine falcon in close proximity.  What an experience!

Thank you for providing this opportunity for the St. Anne's students. Thanks also go out to the TD Canada Trust - Friends of the Environment for funding the delivery of your program.

Thank you for making this program available to our students and to schools in general.  It is certainly a worthwhile endeavour and will foster awareness of the value of life in years to come.

Yours in Catholic education

Deborah A. Zabloski, Principal
