In February 2000, we visited Burlington's King's Road School with our one-year-old male peregrine falcon "Scotty". Below are some comments from the principal, as well as feedback from the students themselves, and three drawings from students, Jeff (top), Lahaie (middle) and Josh (bottom):
I am writing this letter to acknowledge the Canadian Peregrine Foundation for visiting King's Road Public School and making a presentation to our grade 4 and 5 students. The presentation and tape given to the school definitely heightened the children's awareness about the plight of the Peregrine Falcon and about the Recovery Program to ensure their future survival.
Seeing a real Peregrine Falcon in our gym made a lasting impression on the children and kindled a real desire to help these magnificent birds. Our students made posters to display around the school, wrote in their journals, discussed the presentation and the plight of the falcon with their classmates and parents, and held their own Valentine fundraiser for the falcons. The presentation was excellent and a great experience for our students. I highly endorse it for any schools.
The following comments are very representative of all the children who viewed the presentation and tape:
