For World Animal Day, TOCK put together another amazing competition.
The theme was –
‘Caring for endangered animals’
This is now closed and we are pleased to announce the winners…
Winner of Group Category
In Malta there’s a common concern for the sea turtles which are rapidly becoming endangered. We, at Smart from the Start Childcare Centre, have been discussing this amazing creature. In an attempt to visualise the turtle, we have been working wholeheartedly on this project for the past few weeks. The children kept saving green plastic bottles, caps and wrapping paper. They have also painted the base of the turtle, which we made out of old carton boxes, in green. Unfortunately our little ones could not finalize the whole project themselves as our centre had to shut abruptly due to COVID-19.
Winner of Individual Category
