Monday, April 9, 2018 was “Duck Day” for several Saint David’s Spanish classes. Through her connection with the Livingston Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy, Former Saint David’s PA President Rosie Furniss arranged for two Mandarin ducks and a Cape Barren Island Goose to visit with Saint David’s boys during their Spanish periods, providing our boys a fun and interesting topic of discussion in the language, the opportunity to interact with the live birds, and to learn about them and their conservation. Among the many things the boys discovered was that the Mandarin ducks, who mate for life, are a symbol of love and common wedding gifts in China.
