Recently, students at St Andrew had the pleasure of enjoying a movie at Silver City: The Lorax. The Lorax is a children's book written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1971. It chronicles the plight of the environment.
The book is recognized as a fable concernng industrialized society and the danger it poses to nature. The Once-ler never shows his face, his face is never shown in any of the story's illustrations).
The Lorax, a small orange creature, appears from the stump of a truffula tree. He speaks for the trees and warns the Once-ler of the consequences of cutting down the truffula trees, but the Once-ler ignores him. Soon the once beautiful land becomes polluted and the fauna flee to find more hospitable habitats.
