Dragon egg mystery delights pupils
AN AREA at a Portishead school had to be taped off after a mysterious discovery.
Caretaker Geoff Smith interrupted morning assembly at High Down Junior School after unearthing an unidentified object in the school garden.
Pupils were allowed to take a closer look after police support officers declared it safe and the students discovered it was a large egg.
After moving it to a safe and warm place, youngsters returned to school the next day to find the egg had hatched. Experts were called in and declared the find a dragon’s egg, leaving an empty shell.
The exercise was part of a Wow Day aimed at making learning more exciting.
