Students excited about the 2024 Ringtail Tally

Students Excited About The 2024 Ringtail Tally 1

Nicole from GeoCatch came to speak to the Year 5 and 6 students last Thursday (21 March) about the different types of possums and how the Western Ringtail Possum is native to our area and endangered. She talked about the need to keep pets inside at night to help protect them and how they use possum boxes to provide additional shelter and protection from predators.  

GeoCatch is hosting a Possum Counting competition from 7 April – 4 May. Participants from the Year 5 and 6 classes are in the running to win their very own possum box. Students will need to return their completed Ringtail Tally forms to school after 4 May. Winners will be announced next month.
