Essex School Colouring Competition
In the Autumn term of 2015, local primary schools near Ingatestone in Essex were invited to take part in a Remus colouring competition, organised by our Education Officer Sara Hampson.
The aim was to let schools know that at Remus we are keen to engage with local schools and to educate children on the correct way to approach and handle animals.
The entrants were very colourful as you can imagine and so hard to judge! Winners for the different key stages were chosen and all entrants received a free pass to a 2016 Open Day. You can see two of the images alongside.
Ingatestone Infants invited Sara to talk to their school council about Remus and, as a result they chose Remus as their charity of the term. They raised enough money to sponsor 6 animals and visited the Sanctuary in December with the Head to choose their animals. Great work Ingatestone Infants!
We hope that more schools will consider us in their fundraising efforts.
