During last week the team were preparing for the Ascension Day Fair that was held on Saturday 31st May 2014. It was good day and an enjoyable event.

 

We had a mixture of activities on the day. There was guessing the skeleton bones with Eliza and Maria (see opposite page for answers); colouring competitions for everyone;  looking under the microscope at various specimens. As well as a display of the children’s pictures that were entered into the competition for postcardsand a video prepared by the fisheries team of the sealife around Ascension Island.

 

Winners of the postcard competition will be announced at the Two Boats School assembly and displayed in the Islander next week. Winners for the conservation colouring competition are as follows:

 

1st place – 3-5 years – Allegra Leigh

 

1st place – 7-10 years – Shelby Clifford

2nd place – 7-10 years – Kelly-jo Peters

 

1st place – 10-16 years – VinaDupres

All prizes for both competitions will be presented at the school.

 

Thank you all for your continuous support with conservation and thank you to Cheryl Anthony and the Ascension Day Fair Committee for allowing us to share our information with the island.
