PYTHONS are fascinating and scary creatures to most of us, but what an experience it was for us to see these enormous snakes - the whole school was on its feet.

Mr Vic Rencken shared very interesting information about his snakes and all the while the snakes were free to slither around the Andachtsraum. We could watch their movements and touch them, but we also listened to his important message - snakes can be dangerous and we must never touch a snake we don’t know. Pupils who were brave enough were given the opportunity of wrapping a python around their body under the watchful eye of Mr Rencken. Thank you Mr Rencken for again taking time off your work to show and tell us about your pythons, and thank you Mrs Malzahn for once again organising the visit.
