President Peter used the DVD The Platypus: The World’s Most Amazing Animal when he gave 10 lessons to Year 9 English classes in 01 Viqueque and Cabira-oan schools. The students enjoyed the experience. Using a soft toy of the platypus helped, especially how the baby egg ( a tiny piece of white chalk) is cuddled.
It was a great way of telling something wonderful about our country. The two schools have libraries which have been set up by funds provided by Geelong Viqueque Friendship Schools and the two new librarians, also funded by us, were both glad to have jobs and being pleased to be part of the schools.
