On Tuesday this week, class 3 and 4 braved those heavy rain clouds and ventured off to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Thanks to our Currumbin Wildlife Ambassador, Ned in Class 3, we were invited to visit the sanctuary for free. We started the day up at the Discovery Den for an educational talk. Here we got to meet, learn about and pat ‘Wattle’ the elegant stick insect, ‘Turtle’ the Echidna and a VERY big beautiful python!
From there we ventured on to the Free Flight Bird Show where we encountered some magnificent birds such as the barking owl, the black kite and the wedge-tailed eagle. As our adventure continued, we met lots of very cute koalas, kangaroos, reptiles and some hungry crocodiles!
We all arrived back safe and sound, much drier than we’d expected to and with LOTS of wondrous animal tales to tell. A big thank you to our lovely parent helpers Nadine and Cindy for coming along.
