In November 1999, we visited St. Timothy School in Mississauga with our 9-year-old female peregrine falcon "Qetesh". Below are some comments from one of the teachers, accompanied on the right by a couple of letters from students:
|On behalf of
the grade 6 and 7 classes at St. Timothy School I would like to express our appreciation
for having had the opportunity to enjoy your presentation about the peregrine
falcon. We were thoroughly impressed by the volume of information that was presented
in 40 minutes, in a way that was understandable by all students.
As you can see from the attached copies of student responses to the presentation your program provided the equivalent of a substantial research project about endangered species and related issues such as the effect of pesticides on the environment. It has certainly given our students a greater awareness and appreciation for the importance of protecting our environment. It also gave us a rare opportunity to see this bird up close.
We feel this is a program which should be made available to all schools. It provides extremely effective and efficient way of teaching environmental issues to children and successfully holds their attention for an entire hour. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge and expertise with our students.
Jolanda van Leeuwen, Grade 7 teacher
