In Term 1, Week 8, the Lower Middle Primary Class took part in a bat information evening. Harry Beauchamp from the Natural Resources Management Board ran the evening with bat expert Chris Grant. The children and parents assisted in setting up a harp net and mist nets to try and catch bats, and used iPads to detect bat calls.
The children enjoyed the presentation by Chris and interesting questions by parents and students contributed to everyone’s learning. Harry left a bat box kit for the class to assemble and place in an appropriate place within the school. Let’s hope we have our own bat family soon.
