Every twist and turn, you see an animal. What is this place? Are we in a zoo? Actually, we are in our own school; the only difference is the living creatures that are roaming around. Instead of students on the streets, we see animals. This day is a very special day/event for our school because on this particular sunday, we get to see our animal protector Jane Goodall.
The first thing that makes this day special is because we get to see Jane Goodall. She knows everything about chimpanzees and even wrote books from her observations. She is indeed not so young, but she is determined to save her lovely animals from getting extinct. When we dress up as animals, we are showing how much we care about animals and how much we want to save them. We walked around while we pretended to act like that particular creature.
The second reason why this sunday is special is because we do not need to learn anything. Instead, we get to walk around without needing to worry about cars because they can’t come in this area. This is actually a one and only school/week day where we don’t need to take a test. Which means that we could relax even if it is 3 days before the midterms. We don’t need to learn school related topics, but we could learn some information of Jane Goodall by listening to her fantastic and educated speech about her plan how we can help animals .
The third reason why it is such a big event for IBSH is because this doesn’t happen every year. She might not come back next year because she might not have time and she will have to take a lot of energy because as people age, they can’t travel very often because your back might hurt. IBSH is honored to have her come to IBSH because Taiwan has many schools but instead of choosing Taipei or other big cities, she chose Hsinchu Science park to be her entertainer.
Having Jane Goodall coming here is very rare and you might not even see her for a second time. Even if you think that this event is useless and it doesn’t help us in anyway, it does. Its not just about how much fun you are having in whatever event. Its the part where you could feel. By going to a parade, you learn to be an animal and maybe you can be an animal when you grow up because technically, we are animals. What animal do you want to be?
