They’re Calling on YOU!!!!!

5/6RO have been working this term on a unit called ‘SAVE OUR SPECIES!!’  

We visited Melbourne Zoo earlier in the term and after learning a lot about adaptations and human and natural threats to animals in our world, we decided to take on one of Melbourne Zoo’s projects called ‘They’re Calling on YOU!’

Please watch our news broadcast and help us to SAVE THE GORILLAS!!!  If you have any old mobile phones that you would like to donate, please bring them to our classroom.
