Our Year 2 students went on a field trip to Healesville Sanctuary on Wednesday, 20 February 2019. The excursion was part of their inquiry topic called "Watch it Grow", which focuses on animals, habitats and their life cycles.
Students had the opportunity to engage in animal feeding times and see most of the Australian animals including emus, dingoes, echidnas and lizards up close in their natural habitats. The animals are cared for around the clock by professional keepers and live out their lifespans by an extra 3 years at most, because of the extra love and care they are provided with.
We would like to acknowledge our wonderful parent helpers who dedicated their time and provided supportive assistance to the teachers and students. Our day would not have been as much fun as it was without your kind help.
Our students, parents and staff had an enjoyable experience with unforgettable memories.
