We are happy to share a biography written about the founder of the Mangroves from the Water (MFTW) by Thomas D, a Grade 4 school student of The Geelong College. The biography was part of the Enviro Hero biography program supported by three teachers, one of whom is John Henderson, Thomas’ teacher. The aim of the program was to teach students about their surrounding environment and the local people who help the environment.
We think the Enviro Hero biographies program was successful and the students learned a lot about their environment, how to write a biography and how to get environmentally active in the future.
We thank The Geelong College for running the Enviro Hero biographies program and for the book that holds copies of all the biographies. We thank the teacher John, and his student Thomas for his beautiful written and portrait work.
Finally, we’d love all schools to add such a program to their curricula. Please download the files below to see the students’ reflections on the Enviro Hero biographies program.
