Item Description

This piece was created by a group of Ivanna Eudora Kean High School (St. Thomas) students as part of a SKIP (School Kids in the Park) funded project.

ABOUT SKIP:During the 2009-2010 school year, nine grants were awarded to teachers enabling them to bring their students into the Park.  Students from JESS, Gifft Hill School and Ivanna Eudora Kean High School experienced the Park as a living classroom capitalizing on its natural and/or cultural resources.  SKIP also enabled more than 650 children to take field trips into the park for ranger-led activities such as hiking the Reef Bay Trail, visiting the Annaberg Plantation Ruins, seashore walks along Leinster Bay, etc.  This project gives teachers the opportunity to use the Park to bring alive the study of natural and applied sciences, and cultural history, stimulating students to develop an appreciation of their heritage and their natural surroundings.
