Year 2 Excursion: Polly Woodside - Historic Ship

24 May 2017

Our Junior School students from Year 2 embarked on a journey back in time when they visited the replica of a historic tall ship, the "Polly Woodside".

On board the ship, the students learnt about life on board an early 20th century vessel, could inspect the ship mates' rather tiny sleeping cabin, try their hands on some of the ship’s coal cargo and learnt many other fascinating aspects on board such a vessel. The highlight for students was "rocking the boat" and assisting in "scrubbing the deck".

The excursion was greatly enjoyed by all our students, staff and parent volunteers.
