Josh visits Harvest School in Bangalore

It was another hot day in Bangalore and I had awoken early, after flying in from a short trip to Kerala the evening before. I was with my wife Ishani, and together we made our way across the city from my in-law’s house to Harvest International School. Thankfully we were going in the opposite direction of most of the cars and the roads became smaller and windier as we made our way to the outskirts of the city.

The school that was waiting for us was absolutely beautiful.

I was there to talk to students about Night Zookeeper, specifically my new book The Giraffes of Whispering Wood.

The school is huge. Children from Kindergarten to year 12 all learn and play together across the modern school complex. The Kindergarten is Montessori and it’s clear that an effort has been made to maintain the value of creativity throughout the school.

When I arrived I first spoke with children in years 3 through 5, as part of a huge assembly, and they were all popping with imaginative ideas.

Then I worked in the IT lab with smaller groups of children to get them all set up on the Night Zookeeper website.

From sitting down and signing up, it wasn’t long before they were bringing their ideas to life in wonderful drawings and in written reports like this one.

Harvest International School were incredibly kind hosts and I would like to thank all of the staff there for making me feel so welcome. The children were simply incredible and a credit to the school. I look forward to another visit in the future!

UK school children given unique chance to create animated characters for TV series

The team here at Night Zookeeper is delighted to be giving primary school children across the UK a unique opportunity to use a new (and free!) website to create characters for a soon-to-launch animated TV series in a world first. Of course, Night Zookeeper is already well-known to school children aged seven and above as an award-winning digital platform that encourages literacy and writing, but soon it’ll also be an animated series on Sky Kids!

How a Primary School Teacher Made Homework Fun. We’re extremely lucky to work with some of the most amazing teachers in the world, as the Night Zookeeper community continues to grow every day! Thanks to the generous sponsorship from Colt Technology, we have been able to work with a new network of schools who perhaps would have been unable to introduce their students to the wonderful world of the Night Zoo.
