Today we went to the Auckland Zoo. Thanks to John our zoo guide who was impressed with the intelligent questions being asked by our group of kids, the manners displayed throughout the tour, their keen eyesight in spotting the birds in amongst the trees and leadership qualities amongst some students. Thanks also to our helpers who came along to help out today.

It was raining so the orangutans has covered themselves with a cloth so we didn't realise they were in their enclosure. Once the rain had stopped they immediately took the covers off to reveal where they were and straight away they jumped onto their playground.

Student: "Mister, he looks like Maurice from Planet of the Apes."

Can you spot the alligator?
