Adop­tion magic for all crea­tures great and small

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

WHILE one is tiny and one is tall, a gi­raffe and meerkat have one thing in com­mon.

Both have been adopted by the prepri­mary stu­dents at Como Pri­mary School.

To raise the money for the adop­tion, the stu­dents pro­duced a can­vas art­work of an an­i­mal for an art ex­hi­bi­tion for their par­ents.

Par­ents were then able to pur­chase their child’s piece for $5.

The money raised from adop­tions helps to take care of the an­i­mals, pro­tect en­dan­gered species and pur­sue on­go­ing con­ser­va­tion ef­forts.

Eve Pi­latti and Harry Huang show off the class’s gi­raffe adop­tion cer­tifi­cate.
