Year 8 HDS chose their own topic and theme for term 3 – animals. So we began by looking at taxonomy and how animals are classified. Who knew that Beyonce had a species of beetle names after her, or Bill Gates a spider?!
Today though, we had a visit from three special people – Steph, Tui and Wilbur. They came to tell us about what the SPCA does in Otago and what we can do to help. Steph said her most unusual animal she has rescued was an elephant and has only been bitten once by an animal in 30 years. It was an excellent presentation and we thank all three for their time and expertise!
