Year 4 ZooTastic Sleepover
On Tuesday, the Year 4s took off to Monarto Safari Park for a day of exploring the amazing Australian and African animals! We had a blast on our private tour with Wendy, the Monarto Zoo Educator. We got to see the lions up close (in the bus!), including the new baby cubs, watch the giraffes eating their lunch, and were thoroughly entertained by the baby chimpanzees annoying their parents. One group went for a walk to explore the park a bit more and saw the Black Rhinoceros up nice and close as it was pacing along the fence line.
When we got back to PPN, everyone set up their beds and relaxed before we had dinner. After dinner, we participated in an Amazing Race designed by Mr Harris. Everyone had fun going around to the 10 different stations, competing in a range of challenges, testing their skills, knowledge, endurance and luck!! We finished the night getting comfy in our rooms and watching a movie with some popcorn and Milo, before sleeping overnight at the school. For some of us, this was our first time away from home, and we had an awesome time and made many memories on this ZooTastic sleepover!!
Thanks to all of the teachers and parents who came along and helped out!
