Today Room 1 and 2 had a fabulous trip to Owlcatraz in Shannon. The kids enjoyed learning about the Ruru and Weka.
Our trip began with a hilarious ride on the Thomas train. We made it easily around the first lap but on the second we began to go backwards on the last corner. Apparently we were too heavy... Luckily the Fat controller was on hand to give us a push!
We had a tour through the Owl barn, where we got up close to the wonderful birds. A few More pork decided to fly around us, which was very exciting. We walked through the bush trail looking out for the 'frog on the log' and the all the other creatures that were scattered around. We heard the Weka call and Brody's hat had to be rescued from inside the enclosure before the Weka ran off with it!
We had lunch with comedian Joey the Cockatoo and finished with a play in the playground.
What a great day. Thanks to all our wonderful helpers for giving up your time and petrol to drive us safely there and back. We couldn't have done it without you.
Here are a few pictures.
