Hard work, conducting a field guiding experience and stars?
We continued from last week where each one of has had to do a walk or drive every morning to prep for our practical assessment. Naturally we have all been nervous but have improved each time we went out. We have been lucky as we have seen so many different things, ranging from hammerkop nests to bushbuck to hippos to elephant even spotted some hyena tracks (no pun intended). To add to this we knew we had to study for the exam on Friday so we were quite stressed. We have learnt about reptiles, astronomy, amphibians, arthropods, nature conservation and early human habitation so the exam is quite alarge subject base to study.
On Wednesday Ian took out the telescope where we saw Saturn and her wonderful rings and saw the craters on the moon which was so exciting. Two of the girls even spent a few extra minutes trying desperately to spot the flag in the bottom of one of these craters, but sadly it was not found!!
After we wrote our exam everyone believed that they didn’t make the exam on Friday, but only to have a big surprise that everyone passed!!! We were extremely pleased so we thought we could relax for the weekend which we did on Friday night but there is always more work to be done; can’t wait to see what next week holds!!!
