Cynon Valley Crime Prevention Association

Cardinal Newman Year 7 Presentation

Our presentation was about animal cruelty and the safety of animals. There are many types of animal cruelty like leaving pets out in the cold or ignoring your pet. Under or over feeding your pet are other examples of animal cruelty. We were at the presentation for the day. It was a fun and exciting experience. There were a number of presentations that day and they were all good they were all about different thing like alcohol or safety of drugs. That day we were lucky enough to meet someone who ran with the Olympic torch we also had a picture of us holding the Olympic torch. There were over one hundred people from different schools watching the presentations. We all got a certificate awarded to us for our participation that day. We all enjoyed the day and so did the other schools. Every school put allot of effort into their presentations.
