Students from a Swiss Cottage special school came face-to-face with skeletons from the animal kingdom during a trip to London Zoo.
A group of Year 10 pupils from Swiss Cottage School Development and Research Centre visited the zoo as part of a new educational partnership between the school and the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), which manages the zoo in Regent’s Park. The partnership aims to develop students’ knowledge of bio-diversity.
During the visit pupils enjoyed a tour of the zoo, examined animal skulls to identify those with meat-eating teeth, and listened to a talk from ZSL zoologist Dr John Bielby.
Claire Avant, development manager at the school, said: “They are learning about bio-diversity, things like the eco-system, the food cycle and the effects of changing the environment.”
The Ham&High is asking readers to help raise £60,000 for the Pigs4Kids campaign to support the new school, in Avenue Road, Swiss Cottage.
