Excursion to Sydney Wildlife Park and Aquarium
Our Years 1 and 2 students were very excited to attend their Sydney Wildlife Park and Aquarium excursion!
Staff and students started the day early – arriving at school at 7:00 am. The excitement on the students' faces as we approached Sydney was wonderful to see. The students loved going under the tunnel near the airport, we were lucky enough to see some planes take off.
Our first adventure was the Sydney Wildlife Park. We walked around the wildlife park and saw many unique Australian animals such as the red tree kangaroo, Tasmanian devil, wombat, red belly black snake, crocodile, bilby and green tree frog.
During lunch and we were lucky enough to sit in the undercover koala exhibit and have lunch with the koalas.
After lunch, we went to the Sydney Aquarium. We walked through the shark and stingray tunnels, saw a dugong, sea turtles and a variety of different fish from all over the world.
The rainy weather could dampen our day or our enthusiasm – it was a great excursion that was thoroughly enjoyed by all the children.
Thank you to Mrs Grey for all the organisation and Ms Martins, Mrs Zaffonato, Mrs Agius and Ms Maitland for assisting us on the day.
