Life Skills

On behalf of the Natural History Society, I’m thrilled to share some exciting news about our bioactive vivarium project, and we want you to be in the loop! Our dedicated team of students has been hard at work, making incredible progress that we can't wait to tell you about.

On Thursday evening, our amazing boys measured the enclosure with precision, ensuring a perfect fit for our vivarium. They then prepared the polystyrene back, adding a cool texture that will make it visually stunning. To ensure a seamless and sturdy environment, they expertly grouted any cracks that needed attention. And, let's not forget, the massive clean-up operation—they left no stone unturned, making sure the DT workshop shines like new.

Now, here's the exciting part—we're preparing our vivarium for its resident, Helix, our lab snake. Helix will soon have a beautiful and thriving habitat to call home, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our students.

We are immensely proud of their commitment and enthusiasm throughout this project. They are not only learning about the natural world but also gaining valuable skills in teamwork, problem-solving, and attention to detail.

Next week, our team will embark on the journey of painting the backs, bringing the vivarium to life even more!

We want to express our gratitude to all the parents for their support and encouragement. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to create an amazing learning environment for our students and the incredible snake, Helix.

Best wishes,
Mr. Fyfe
