Equipped with waterproofs and wellies, our Pre-Prep and Nursery children embarked excitedly upon the annual school walkathon on Wednesday 11 November; this year a sponsored event as part of our naturewatch week.

Carrying spotter cards, our intrepid explorers adventured around the school’s leafy grounds, through the wild woods and up the hill to the Belvedere tower in search of local wildlife and natural habitats. The children were able to successfully identify many tree varieties on their journey, including our impressive redwood trees and caught glimpses of squirrels, birds and habitats belonging to foxes and badgers. Children also enjoyed finding and collecting natural materials including pine cones, colourful autumn leaves and bamboo twigs to take back to their classrooms.
