A wild time at Moorside
A lucky pupil at Moorside Primary School in Lancaster won a prize to be a zoo-keeper for a day at The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis.
The prize was for designing and creating a model of a dream home and it was sponsored by estate agents Matthews Benjamin. There were more than 40 entries from students and, as well as a star prize, the runners-up each received £10 vouchers and everyone who took part had tickets to the wildlife centre
Its manager, Jack Williams, attended a school assembly and brought along some ‘friends’ from the Milnthorpe centre, which has rare and endangered species.
Bessie Hallam, of Matthews Benjamin, said: ‘It has been such a pleasure to work with both The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis and Moorside Primary School and there was nothing more rewarding than seeing both the effort that all the children put into their entries and their excitement at the assembly. We hope to continue our relationship with the Oasis and visit other schools in the area throughout the year.’
Mr Williams added: ‘Partnerships with local businesses and schools is incredibly important to us and I was genuinely impressed with the school and its attitude towards its teaching and the relationship between the teachers and the children.’
