A wild time at Moor­side

Lancashire Life - - EDUCATION LIFE -

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.’
