A Fantastic Day at the Zoo!

A Fantastic Day at the Zoo!

On Thursday 14 September, our Reception students had a fantastic day at the zoo, basking in the warm spring sun and observing the animals out and about enjoying the sunshine.

During their zoo visit, students eagerly learned about Australian animals in a session led by zoo educator, Erin. Students explored the unique features, habitats, diets, and behaviours of Australian animals, had the chance to touch and explore animal skins and get up close and personal with a stick insect and blue tongue lizard. Students also learned about the importance of conservation, understanding why we need to protect these incredible animals and their homes.

As the day ended our Reception students returned to school with newfound knowledge and precious memories. A huge thank you to our dedicated volunteers who made this day possible!
