Support for penguins extends to Sale classrooms
Sale Primary School and St Thomas Primary School were recently visited by Phillip Island Nature Parks’ Chirpy Chicks program. Sponsored by ExxonMobil Australia, the program involves school incursions from park rangers who give children an interactive understanding of the daily lives of penguins. 

During a Chirpy Chicks session, children immerse themselves in penguin life through life-like penguin dress-ups, mock-examinations and storytelling. 

In 2019, the Chirpy Chicks program will again visit schools close to ExxonMobil’s operations in Victoria, including Gippsland, the Mornington Peninsula and in Melbourne’s west.

ExxonMobil Australia Operations Superintendent and Sale parent Simon Kemp said his children had the opportunity to participate in a recent Chirpy Chicks incursion.

“The Chirpy Chicks incursion program gives children a fun and interactive experience that builds understanding and appreciation of penguins and our marine environment. It’s a great way for our company to support education of children in our local communities,” he said.
