The Isles of Scilly Seabird Recovery delivers assembly at Five Island School, St Mary’s

Project manager Jaclyn Pearson and Elizabeth Bell  gave the morning assembly to 100 secondary school children at St Marys Five Islands School. Biz spoke about the important work here and other island restoration projects she has led all over the world. Each student and teacher wrote down a word to explain how they felt about the project. The top three answers were inspiring, good and awesome. Thanks to Careers librarian Penny Rogers for organising the event.
