projects Co-curricular

College Watch makes its presence felt in the school grounds.

Another College Watch, another fantastic connection with the great outdoors. The co-curricular club (one of our most popular) has made another strong tie with the natural landscape around us by releasing butterflies into the wild.

Every year, Dr Parker receives five butterfly larvae to give students the opportunity to observe the whole process of metamorphosis. This week, we watched with great excitement as the first of the pupae began to hatch. By Thursday, we had three indigenous butterflies, which College Watch students duly released among the nettles in the wooded area of the school grounds.

Following the ceremony, the girls then made their way to the school greenhouse where they potted and watered sunflower, spinach and wildflower seeds and checked on the progress of the potatoes they had planted several weeks ago.
