Penryn junior pupils get up close to weird and wonderful pets

First published in News

Penryn College’s Interact Club played host to a group of children from the town’s junior school who were given the chance to get up close to some unusual pets.

Nicola Congdon, who lives in Falmouth with a menagerie of creepy-crawlies, took along a selection from her collection to show the children and even allowed them to handle some.

On display were a bearded dragon, two tarantulas, Mr Happy the Poland chicken and two corn snakes, which were on loan from Kernow Exotics. Many of the youngsters from Penryn Junior School were keen to get closer to the animals, even if their teacher wasn’t.

After an explanation of each animal by Nicola and a question and answer session, the children were split into two groups and took it in turns to get closer to the animals and take part a colouring competition.

The whole event had been organised by the college’s Interact Club which is sponsored by Penryn Rotary Club and offers students aged between 12 and 18 the chance to get involved with the local community.
