ECO:  Winners of the Rhino Rap and Poetry Competition
Congratulations to our awesome rap and poetry stars for writing such beautiful poems enjoy the read.
  
Foundation Phase:  Oliver Pascoe, Grade 3
Rhino rap
No more poaching 
“I woke up in the morning and this is what I saw…I saw a big fat rhino walking right through my door.  I’m feeling pretty lucky ‘cause they are very rare, but people are poaching them, everywhere.  There’s some folk in China that are buying their horns, they just don’t care that they are breaking the laws.  They put it in their medicines, they think it makes them strong, they just don’t know that killing rhinos is wrong…..so back to that rhino that was walking through my door, if the poachers keep up their nonsense, they won’t be there anymore!!!”

 

Grade 4-6:  Logan McLaren, Grade 5
The Rhino Poem
Hey Mr Rhino
How are you?
Oh no, your horn’s gone
What did they do?
 
They came and chopped it off with a saw
Even though poaching is against the law.
They didn’t even give me some pain pills,
They just took off with the horn
And ran for the hills
 
Oh, it’s a sin
To try and make medicine
They think my horn is powerful and magic
When it’s actually all very tragic
 
Don’t worry Mr Rhino, we’ll throw the poachers in jail
And that’s where they’ll stay until they are frail.

 
Grade 7:  Megan Emslie
The Rhino
The amount of rhinos poached has grown
All because of the myths about their horn.
The horn which should be displayed in its natural beauty
Has now been made into human “muti”
 
Why do we hunt this beautiful creature?
Because of its horn, the main feature?
Their deep brown eyes and silky lashes
But no horn, just knife slashes.
 
It’s sad to think they could be gone one day
Just because people are willing to pay
To buy rhino horn medicine
Keeping the demand for them.
 
To stop poaching, we must educate
Because it won’t be too late
Education could stop the use of
Rhino keratin.
 
The horn
So big
So vast
We won’t let poaching last.
 
We won’t let rhinos go
Because we will let the poachers know
That we
Will stand
For
Rhinos.

Intermediate Phase: Book Character Dress up Day - 25 September was a great success the learners loved showing off their characters.

#TedTalk Tuesday: This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Jennifer Nacif tells us how to shift manipulation to motivation when it comes to communicating with our children. Jennifer plays the characters of four different children, and in clever fashion, shows us how different personalities require different reactions from parents. The needs of each personality are not only relevant to the children in our lives, but to everyone we encounter, and Jennifer provides easy and actionable ways to motivate and empower those around us.
