In June 2001 we visited Central Park School in Dundas with our female peregrine falcon "Qetesh". Below is a letter from the school:
On Friday June 8, 2001 the Canadian Peregrine Foundation visited Central Park School with a very special guest - a live adult peregrine falcon.
Central Park School has a long and successful history of participation in recycling and environmental preservation initiatives. When contacted by the Canadian Peregrine Foundation about "Project School Visit" teachers and students alike were very excited about the learning and growth opportunities that such a visit could make possible.
We were not disappointed in any way! Our grade 4 and 5 students were an active part of a 50-minute seminar conducted by one of the Foundation's biologists. The material and information was not only very interesting to our students, but touched on many of the learning outcomes in the Ontario curriculum.
Of course, the highlight of the presentation was meeting this beautiful and awe-inspiring raptor.
Resource material left for the school, a video entitled "Life on the ledge" and 25 copies of the "Student's Guide to Ontario's Endangered Wildlife" were very helpful in assisting teachers and students alike in further studies during the weeks to follow the visit.
We heartily thank the Canadian Peregrine Foundation for their visit and would highly recommend this presentation to any interested school.
