Junior Scientists Restoring Brazil's Rainforest

Success at the end of the road!

What a fun, festive christmas season it's been! And what a lot our youngsters have achieved in the last month! 

Sadly, our amazing mask and mural project with Nursery manager Toni, has come to an end, but it could not have been a more tremendous end!

Excitement levels ran super high on the big revealing of the beautiful mural that the younger children painted on the wall of the parish. With the christmas lights and the happiness bubbling through the community it was a sight to see when they revealed their artwork with a flourish and each child proudly showed which animal they had carefully painted to add to the big collage!

And not only was the atmosphere alive with the pride of the mural but at seven o' clock we all were seated and an incredibly excited silence descended on all the ecstatic spectatores. And sure enough we were all spell bound by the effort the children had made painting the most exquisite masks each of their own chosen endangered animal. They performed the play Toni had written almost without fluke and the delight of their faces once it was finished and they saw all the community clapping and cheering for them was not worth missing!

All in all a real success and even now almost three weeks later we are still getting parents and children tellling us how great the whole thing was and how happy they were to have been a part of it.
