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?

  1. Kia ora Rm 23,
    WOW! First of all, your guys trip look amazing. I'm very sad that I missed out on so much fun. It's so lovely to see so many different animals and I hope you learnt so much about the animals natural habitats.


    Did you know that, the main reason why animals are so important to us is to make sure that their habitats will preserve for the future generations of both wildlife and human can enjoy?

    1. Thank you Ivory. We would have loved to have had you there with us. We had a good day out. Hopefully what the kids' experienced at the zoo will aid them in their concept for this term.
