The Lume- whole school

This excursion was an awe-inspiring excursion for students and staff alike. The interactive nature of the exhibit kept all the students surprised and enjoying the artwork. Many of us agreed that the best part was entering the space for the first time and seeing the amazing experience that engaged all the senses

The Melbourne Excursion Aquarium- Grade 3/4

On Thursday 25th of August, the grade 3/4 students went on an excursion to the Sealife Aquarium. They had an amazing day exploring and learning new and interesting information about the different animals. The tour guides were amazing and captivated the student’s attention. All students thoroughly enjoyed seeing the penguins, they were all fascinated by them. They got to touch starfish, have a stare-off with fish, see stingrays, Pinjarra the crocodile, turtles and so many more interesting and unique sea creatures.

“My favourite part of the aquarium was probably everything, it was so cool everywhere I looked. There was no part I didn’t like” Fahd

“Seeing the penguins was so cute. My favourite thing was when they swam in the water” Alex

“I liked the penguins at the aquarium because they were really cute and funny” Ommul
