Sensational Travel Diaries
HABE continues to embrace and celebrate Science Week with exciting activities including practising the art of alchemy, planting seeds in our newly formed Allotment Club, constructing towers using only scientific knowledge, spaghetti and marshmallows and even bush tucker trials where our students were offered tempting treats like garlic crickets!
One of the outstanding events has to be Mr Sneider’s lunchtime talk where he shared photos and anecdotes from his recent travels to East Africa. Students were enthralled, and fascinated when he told of his adventure studying wildlife in different habitats, from the summit of the highest peak in Uganda, Mount Stanley to the regions of the national parks, Samburu and Kibale. Mr Sneider told a pictorial story of him witnessing lions hunting Impalas, coming face to face with bull elephants and leopards, tracking chimpanzees and patiently look for days to find one of the rarest and most beautiful birds in the world, the Green Breasted Pitta.
We are very lucky at HABE to have such dedicated and interesting teachers who are willing to share and bring to life such exciting experiences for our students to share.
