“Here, birdy, birdy!” The grade 6 students from Scarborough’s St. Henry Catholic School who visited Claremont Field Centre in November 2014 based their action project on birds.
After researching local and endangered bird species, they decided to install two bird feeders in their schoolyard. The students have taken responsibility for refilling the feeders, keeping them clean, and monitoring the biodiversity.
The school community of roughly 330 staff and students has enjoyed observing all the birds that visit the feeders too! With a hawk as school mascot and a great action project, St. Henry really IS all about the birds!
